NDT Training Methods & Courses

Nondestructive testing utilizes a variety of testing methods and employs techniques and procedures to evaluate and determine the condition or integrity of materials without damaging them.

View Course Calendar

We offer classroom NDT training for levels I and II or refreshers in the following methods. The classes comply with either NAS 410 or ASNT training standards and required hours. Please contact us for specific classroom needs and prices. Classroom discounts are always offered for our consulting customers as well.

NDT training

High frequency sound energy is used to determine the structural integrity of a material. The use of various modes of sound can provider vital information related to the material. Transmitted or reflected ultrasonic energy is reflected and displayed on a test unit and evaluated.

Specialty classes offered: UT-Thickness A-Scan, UT-Thickness Digital, Phased array


The use of magnetic lines of flux to determine discontinuities in the surface (or near surface) of a test object. Fine magnetic particles are attracted to leakage fields and indications are formed that can be seen visually. This method is limited to ferro-magnetic materials.

NDT training

Penetrating liquids with good wetting characteristics which incorporate dyes are used to enter surface opened capillaries and provide and image of discontinuities that can be seen visually.


The use of the human eye to detect discontinuities open to the surface. VT can be either direct or indirect using viewing aids such as video-scopes, mirrors, etc.

NDT training

An electro-magnetic testing method in which eddy-currents are induced into an electrically conductive test object. Changes in the eddy current flow are detected by the coil or coils and displayed on the test instrument. A variety of test conditions may be determined.


Short wave-length electromagnetic ionizing radiation energy used to penetrate materials and provide an image for evaluation. Variations in the image are caused by changes in the structure due to attenuation or absorption. RT can be performed using either a gamma or X-ray source.


This NDT training class is intended to provide a basic education to the users of NDT, not the practitioners of these methods. It provides a high-level overview of the most common six types of NDT methods, their applications, and industry regulation related to NDT. Ideal students are executive and quality program managers, supervisors, and process owners.
