Eddy Current - Level I

Detailed Description

This course provides an understanding of the basic principles and fundamentals of Eddy Current Testing. It focuses heavily on application examples specific to the aerospace and general surface scanning markets.

ECT is one of several electromagnetic testing methods used in NDT and based on electromagnetism and is often the application of choice in surface and tubing inspections.

This course is intended as an initial or refresher training course for individuals pursuing eddy current certification, and for anyone interested in understanding the basic principles and applications of eddy current testing. 

The course addresses required training topics for Level I Eddy Current technicians. Manuals prepared by the Instructor are provided with course registration that address a wide range of topics as defined in ASNT SNT-TC-1A, ANSI CP-105, and other nationally recognized procedures and guidelines for NDT personnel qualification and certification. 

Documentation of the completion of this training course and the associated examinations can assist employers in their in-house certification of NDT personnel. 

The training is divided into 7 sections:

1.     Materials Processing 

2.     Principles of Eddy Current Testing 

3.     Test Coil Arrangements 

4.     Test Coil Design 

5.     Effects of Test Object on Coil 

6.     Instrument Systems 

7.     Applications 

a.     Near surface crack detection in nonferritic alloys

b.     Conductivity measurement

c.     Second Layer Corrosion

d.     Near surface crack detection in ferritic alloys

e.     Near surface crack detection in ferritic welds

This Training:

·      Is required for individuals seeking certification as an eddy current technician

·      Can be used to satisfy training requirements for eddy current personnel established by the ASNT, ASME, FAA, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, etc.

·      Includes lesson summaries and glossaries designed to help students study and pass eddy current qualification exams

·      Includes a training certificate issued upon successful completion of the course

The course is taught by James Cox (http://jecndt.com), a certified Level III in ET by ASNT with 40+ years of experience in the field. 

Note: Three versions of the Level I manuals are in print. One is generic in nature, while the other two focus on equipment and technology supplied by either Olympus or GE. If you are using equipment from a specific vendor, please order the manual that best fits your technology. 

The use of a manual in addition to self-study is strongly encouraged and will add to the overall training benefit and time to be credited. It will also better prepare the student for the practical lab/’hands-on” session. It is recommended that the student log all self-study time. It is also recommended that the applicable Level III be involved and confirm that the reading and self-study assignments have been completed. This should become a part of the student’s training records, which may be used in conjunction with subsequent certifications.
