General Description and Policies of Classroom Courses
Detailed course descriptions can be found in our Class Catalog. (Please note that some classes have pre-requisite work that must be completed.) As required, courses cover Level I and Level II material in the basic methods employed in NDT: Visual Testing, Liquid Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, Ultrasonics (Level I and II, advanced Ultrasonics, the math of Ultrasonics, and a Shearwave Weld Inspection lab), Radiography and Film Interpretation, and soon to come, Eddy Current. Level II and III ACCP prep classes are also offered several times a year or on an as needed basis.
Most courses include an examination assessment according to SNT-TC-1A, the ASNT document specifying recommendations for the qualification and certification of NDT personnel. Assessments typically consists of a General, Specific, and Practical Test, as well as a Vision Test, if needed. All are suitable for use in company sponsored certification programs. If you are not familiar with these assessments or how qualification/certification works in NDT, read a full explanation by clicking here: Qualification and Certification in Nondestructive Testing.
Examination assessments can be scheduled individually for those who have completed our online training courses or employers who require certification tests for newly hired technicians.
