Performance Validation and Annual Certification Programs from Advanced Detection Systems

Validating the performance of your metal detector is critical to conforming to safety standards.  Whether you have an Advanced Detection Systems metal detector or another model, our team of knowledgeable service technicians can thoroughly inspect your system and either confirm that everything is running properly, or indicate any problems.  You will receive a certification document along with a permanent label to place on the machine to indicate the inspection date with a reminder of when the next inspection is due.
We can certify any make or model metal detector!
Certification Services available by Certified Advanced Detection Systems Reps.
