"Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is testing and evaluation that does not destroy the test object. NDT is vital for constructing and maintaining all types of components and structures. Non-Destructive tests are done to detect internal or external imperfections, to determine structure, composition, or properties, or to measure geometric characteristics without affecting the form, fit, or function of the test object or material. To detect different types of indications such as inclusions, cracks and corrosion, there are many methods of testing available, such as radiography, ultrasonic, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, eddy current, and visual. The module provides an overview of each of the major testing methods and laboratory practice to assure understanding of NDT theory.
Weld-Ed Training Opportunity
Participants will receive a complete set of training materials for classroom use. Lunch will be provided at the training site each day. Participants are responsible for travel, lodging and all other meals.
There’s a maximum of 20 participants per location. If course enrollment is less than 10, the course will be cancelled with full refund of registration fee. Notice of cancellation will be given one month prior to start of class. Secondary and post-secondary teachers are eligible to apply for Weld-Ed training. These courses will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance by the National Center for Welding Education and Training. Each module is worth 4 CEU’s.
