Ultrasonic Testing PCN Level 2 Refresher - Online NDT Training

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.

The Ultrasonic Testing PCN Level 2 online refresher training is available to all those that require an overview of the subject and with or without an accompanying recertification examination. This can be booked at the same time.
In-class training equivalent: 2 days



Price per method/refresher training course

Access to the training course is for 30 days

Course information

  • Ultrasonic Testing Level 2 Refresher is ideal for those who already have a basic understanding of the techniques of ultrasonic inspection and would like instruction to improve their knowledge and increase their experience in preparation for a recertification examination.

    Course notes are able to be downloaded to be viewed on a separate device or printed for future use.

    Each assessment will be marked as complete once a 70% pass rate has been achieved, but don't worry, you can attempt these as many times as you like, even if you get higher than 70%.

    The final assessment takes questions from all previous assessments to fully review your learning and refresh your knowledge.
  • The course is split into modules to break down the learning in to manageable parts.
