The NDT Classroom Process

Theoretical Component

  • After registering for the desired course(s) and making payment (either online or with a purchase order), the student will be enrolled in their chosen course(s). Once enrolled, they will be able to log on with a unique password and username and get started immediately.

  • Periodically throughout the course, there will be tests to ensure knowledge retention. The periodic quizzes relating to various key subjects will be monitored, and questions answered incorrectly will require a review of that subject to ensure thorough understanding of the subject matter. At the course conclusion, there will be an opportunity to review all the material before the final exam.

  • The final examination will track every answer given by the learner. If the student does not pass the final examination, then the student will be able to review the exam and applicable course material and can retake the final examination. If the retake is failed, the student must re-register as a new student and repeat the course.

  • Once the student passes the final exam, students receive a Certificate of Completion.

Keep in mind: NDT Classroom courses offer the theoretical element of the learning process. Once you have completed the online portion of the course and passed the final exam, you will need to then complete your practical training with your company Level III or approved instructor. You will also be required by your employer to pass your company's general and specific written exam and vision exam.

Practical Training Component

There are three options to complete your practical training.

     1.   Have your company’s trainer perform the practical training and testing.

     2.   Complete your practical training at an NDT training facility.

     3.   Have NDT Classroom provide an instructor to train at your facility.

Once the online training course (including the required reading assignment) and the “hands-on” lab sessions are completed, the experience time (as defined in SNT-TC-1A (2011), NAS 410, CP-189, ISO 9712, and the employer’s written practice) must be addressed.

Experience is typically achieved by performing various tasks related to the procedures for each specific method and is carried out under the guidance and oversight of the instructor. The experience time must be documented and should be verified by the instructor.

Once all of this is satisfied, the certification process can begin and again must follow the requirements of the employer’s written practice. Usually, the examinations are developed and administered by the instructor, but some companies may choose to use an outside agency. Only the employer can certify their personnel.

Course outlines have been developed from the ANSI/ASNT Standard CP 105, which the online presentations follow. Each subject will be offered separately and will include periodic quizzes and an end-of-course final examination.

A certificate of completion will be issued to all who satisfactorily complete each subject.
