Ultrasonic Testing - Level II 

Detailed Description

After a review of the basic UT Level I subjects, this course presents variables such as beam profile; dead, near and far zones; acoustic impedance; absorption; and scattering. The course also covers other subjects essential for performing angle beam inspection of welds - such as mode conversion, refraction, and attenuation. Calibration of the UT instruments is demonstrated as well as the examination of several test specimens. Immersion and through transmission are discussed along with a variety of other techniques. Also presented are the evaluation and interpretation of test results, along with a focus on the need for complete and accurate test reporting.

UT Level II a completely video-based online course taught by Tim MacInnis that covers:

  • Principles of Ultrasonic Testing
  • Ultrasonic Testing Theory
  • How to perform UT examinations
  • Equipment used to perform UT
  • Techniques used to perform UT
  • Procedures used to perform UT
  • Requirements of UT
  • How to interpret and evaluate test results

This course meets the recommendations for training as described in SNT-TC-1A.

NOTE: There is RECOMMENDED READING assigned at the beginning of the course. The completion of these reading assignments 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. We recommended that the student keep a log of self-study time, that the applicable Level III be involved and confirm that the reading and self-study assignments have been completed, and that both logs and confirmations become part of the student’s training records, which may be used in conjunction with subsequent certifications.
