Make Informed Decisions for Reliable and Cost-Effective Inspections
Non Destructive Testing (NDT) plays an important role in Risk Based Inspections, to identify defects during all phases of an asset’s life cycle. When used properly, NDT is both cost-effective and reliable, yet many companies neglect opportunities to optimise their inspections and achieve better outcomes – improved asset health and substantial reduction of the maintenance burden.
Selecting an appropriate technique to achieve the desired outcome requires understanding of many NDT methods; all have limitations that must be well understood to ensure the reliability of inspections.To facilitate non-NDT personnel in understanding NDT, this course covers the basic theory of each method, some of the many applications and limitations, as well as providing practical exercises to support the theory.
High Impact Training that Achieves Your Objectives
NDT has an important role to play in Risk Based Inspections, Quality Assurance and maintenance programs, as proper application of these methods can detect defects during all phases of manufacturing, condition monitoring, repair and overhaul.
- Understanding of the principles and capabilities of distinct NDT methods
- Awareness of a specific NDT method’s advantages, disadvantages and limitations
- Appreciation of the level of understanding, experience, information and degree of operator interpretation required for NDT inspections to be reliable and relevant
- Ability to discriminate between comparable inspection methods so as to ensure the best outcome
- Hands-on experience
Who Should Attend
Engineers, Managers, Supervisors and Technicians seeking to obtain a better understanding of NDT and its role in industry would benefit from attending.

Liquid Penetrant Testing
Liquid Penetrant may be the least costly and easiest technique to apply; however, the inspection techniques require care to achieve reliable results because not all defects are detectable using some methods. Also, dwell times and low temperatures contribute significantly to detection. Both colour contrast and fluorescent techniques are covered.
Liquid Penetrant Testing (Practical)
Liquid Penetrant testing is undertaken on a variety of welded, forged and cast specimens, using bulk liquids and aerosol packs
Magnetic Particle Inspection
Magnetic Particle inspection is only applicable to ferromagnetic materials but it offers very high sensitivity in comparison with Liquid Penetrant techniques. It may be carried out by operators with limited training, but an understanding of the techniques and equipment available, will enable more effective inspection. Both visible and fluorescent inks are covered using magnetic yokes, head, coil and threading bar on a bench.
Magnetic Particle Inspection (Practical)
Magnetic Particle inspection is undertaken using portable testing equipment, visible and fluorescent magnetic particles. Guidance on interpretation of indications is given.
Industrial Radiography uses x-rays or gamma rays. The significant limitations related to the orientation of the radiation, as well as potential health hazards are covered in detail, as is the use of computed radiography.
Eddy Current testing is practiced for measuring film thickness, metal sorting, discontinuity detection and conductivity sorting.
The importance of trained operators cannot be understated. Students will be given the chance to carry out equipment calibration and simple inspections, including corrosion surveys and lamination sizing.
- ISO17025 (NATA) accreditation
- The role of Level 3 Certified Personnel
- Client specific proficiency assessments
- National and International NDT Technician qualification/certification
- The criticality of reporting
- Applicable standards and compliance
- NDT contract management (technical)
- Quality Assurance/Quality Control
