Introduction to NDT

Detailed Description

In addition to covering the history and development of NDT, this course presents the basic NDT methods (including Visual Testing, Penetrant Testing, Magnetic Particle Testing, Radiographic Testing, and Ultrasonic Testing) as well as materials to be examined and typical discontinuities to be detected by these methods. The principles, techniques, procedures, and applications are included. Because being properly qualified and in compliance with appropriate certification programs is key to the success of any NDT, the course also stresses the importance of proper evaluation to industry acceptance standards.

The instructor for this course is industry legend Charles J. Hellier, who is also the author of The Handbook of Nondestructive Evaluation, published by McGraw-Hill.

The training course consists of eight lessons with quizzes:

1.     Introduction to NDT and Certification of Personnel

2.     Classification and Interpretation of Discontinuities

3.     Visual Testing

4.     Penetrant Testing

5.     Magnetic Particle Testing

6.     Radiographic Testing

7.     Ultrasonic Testing

8.     Eddy Current

This course is especially beneficial for design personnel; structural, maintenance, and materials engineers; management and supervisory personnel; regulators; auditors; project managers; and other non-test individuals who require a basic understanding of NDT. It may also assist the student to select and specialize in one or more method.

NOTE: In addition to the online training, supplemental reading recommendations are included and are encouraged, especially for those who may be pursuing a career in this rapidly expanding technology.
