Ultrasonic Testing Level 3 - Online NDT Training

Why complete this course?

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is one of only two ISO 9712 inspection techniques that is considered volumetric. In this context volumetric implies that the full body of the component is subjected to testing.

UT may be applied to any solid material (with mass or density) such as metals, plastics, glass and concrete. The most commonly applied area is the examination of steel and other metals or alloys in all stages of production, from raw castings, finished forged products and perhaps the most documented, the inspection of weldments.

Using mainly portable equipment and without associated safety considerations i.e. radiation/vapours, it may be employed in hazardous environments, on-site and even in under water environments.

This course has been devised in line with the applicable BINDT syllabus to provide detail of all key subject areas in line with ISO 9712. The course therefore provides a solid foundation of knowledge within ultrasonics to provide you the best chance of success in future PCN ultrasonic testing examinations as well as employer based SNT-TC-1A examinations.

IMechE Engineering Training Solutions's online training program allows students to work and track their progress through the course at their own convenience. This provides the opportunity to spend more time on and revisit specific areas of the course that are not fully understood.

The assessments provide an opportunity to test your knowledge. Students are able to attempt these as many times as they see fit but a 70% pass rate is required to progress.

You also have automatic access to our Product Technology General Theory course.

Special note: Candidates should ideally hold a PCN Level 2 approval in Ultrasonic Testing with at least 2 years’ experience in NDT/Inspection before attempting the course. See also the latest edition of PCN/GEN for the minimum requirements for examinations.

In-class training equivalent - 4 days
