Nondestructive testing will find flaws in an object that may not be visible to the naked eye without impairing intended functionality.

Many employers, agencies and codes require that inspector's are qualified and certified by classroom training, on the job training and examination.

Class content includes fundamentals, procedures, applications, calibrations,

codes, reporting and quizes.

All classes meet or exceed industry standard requirements.

Reduced rates and combination methods are available.

Certificates are signed by an ASNT NDT level III in the method taught.

Ultrasonic Testing

UT capability:

Thickness measurements, flaw detection or material velocity.

Subsurface and surface conditions.

Longitudinal,shear and surface

waves can be produced.

UT class content:

Piezoelectric crystals,velocity,


wavelength,Snells law,critical

angles,near and far field

effects, beam spread,

attenuation,transmission and

reflection coefficients, the

decibel, flaw sizing and

characterizing techniques,

A, B, C scans, DAC, LCD, CRT,

pulser, receiver, clock, alarm,

gate, gain, delay, range and


Phased Array UT advantages:

Phased array is faster than conventional UT, flexible,

mechanically reliable,increase in misorientated defect

detectability and is used for complex geometries.

PAUT class content:

Principles,multiplexing crystals,

probes, (VPA) virtual probe aperture,control of focal depth,

steering angle and width,

wavefront, amplitude, focal laws,

S scan, hardware, software,

data aquisition and analysis.

Students are encouraged to bring their own UT instruments.

Magnetic Particle

Wet fluorescent or dry magnetic particle testing locates surface

surface defects, is used to

locate cracks in magnetic metals.

Class content:

Principles of magnetism,

flux leakage fields, indications,

particles, AC/DC current, field

directions, curie point, UV

black lights and defect types.

MT performed on part shows surface crack from one end to the other

Liquid Penetrant

Type 1 fluorescent or type 2 visible dye penetrant testing gives information about surface conditions and is used to locate surface cracks and defects in magnetic and nonmagnetic metals and some nonmetals.

Class content: Principles, penetrant types and methods,

developers, limitations, UV

black lights and defect types.

PT performed on weld reveals surface cold laps and porosity.

AWS weld inspector

Class covers the basics to prepare students for the exam including weld: Processes, types, symbols,

defects, gauges, heat input,

metallurgy, carbon equivalent, NDT / destructive tests,blueprints, plans, records, limits of authority and the responsibilities required of the CWI by many industry codes.

We also offer classes in RT (film reading) of welds and RVI remote visual inspection digital imaging and data processing.

RVI borescope magnifies weld, takes still image and

reveals possible defect at

toe of weld
