Eddy Current Testing: Welds Level 3

Why attend this course?

This course is suitable for experienced personnel with existing Eddy Current knowledge. The course is designed to provide a more profound knowledge within Eddy Current Testing and to educate in the production of written procedures.

This course is PCN approved and provides excellent preparation for the Level 3 examination as specified by the relevant PCN documentation.

Candidates are required to complete and pass the PCN Level 3 Basic training course before attempting individual methods. More information about the course can be found here.

Can I attend this course?

To qualify direct to Level 3, ISO 9712 dictates that candidates must complete the Level 1, 2 and 3 training courses and also have a minimum of 48 months relevant experience prior to sitting the PCN examination (reductions available – see latest issue of PCN/GEN).

If the student/candidate does not already hold a current BINDT recognised Eddy Current Welds Level 2 certificate the practical element of the Level 2 examination must be successfully completed as part of the Level 3 examination.
