Visual Testing Training Courses

Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 & Refresher/Recertification Training

Visual Testing Training Courses

Courses available:

IMechE Engineering Training Solutions offer Visual Testing (VT) 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 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.
