Radiography Training Courses

Radiographic Testing, Radiographic Interpretation, Computed Radiography, BRS and RPS available in Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3

IMechE Engineering Training Solutions offer a comprehensive range of Radiographic NDT training courses in Levels 1, 2 and 3 in a range of central and employer specific internationally recognised standards such as PCN (BS EN ISO 9712), SNT-TC-1A, EN4179 and NAS410.

We are also able to offer refresher training to those students that are looking to re-certify, providing training on any theory or practical areas that may need to be revisited before sitting their examination.

Courses available:

Radiographic Testing (RT) Level 1
Radiographic Testing (RT) Level 2
Radiographic Testing (RT) Level 3

Radiographic Interpretation (RI) Level 2

Computed Radiographic Testing (CRT) Level 1
Computed Radiographic Testing (CRT) Level 2
Computed Radiographic Testing (CRT) Level 2 (Upgrade)
Computed Radiographic Testing (CRT) Level 3

Computed Radiographic Interpretation (CRI)

Basic Radiation Safety (BRS)
Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS)

Radiography Refresher/Recertification Training

Courses are delivered at the Engineering Training Centre in Sheffield, UK but can also be completed on-site at an organisation's premises or third party location depending on each individual circumstance.

What is Radiography?

Radiography uses X-rays or gamma-rays to produce an image of an object on film. The image is usually natural-size. X-rays and gamma-rays are very short wavelength electromagnetic radiation which can pass through solid material, being partly absorbed during transmission. Thus, if an X-ray source is placed on one side of a specimen and a photographic film on the other side, an image is obtained on the film of the thickness variations in the specimen, whether these are surface or internal.

Radiography is widely used in the inspection of castings and weldments, including light and dense materials ie materials ranging from aluminium to steel. The clear advantage of radiography is the production of a permanent negative image of the component known as the radiograph. These images are produced by passing either gamma radiation or X radiation through a material/test object and onto a photographic emulsion within the film.

Although potentially hazardous radiography remains a vital testing technique in all major industrial sectors.

Customer feedback

"The course was taught to teach rather than just pass the exam. The trainer had a wealth of experience to share"
