This course offers a high practical
content and relevant theoretical background to enable students to achieve
a basic understanding of ultrasonic inspection. Candidates on completion of the
course will be able to calibrate the flaw detector with both compression and
shear wave probes, record accurate thickness measurements and locate and size
lamination’s in steel plate. In addition students will be able to select the
correct compression / shear wave probes for the examination of welded butt
joints, locate and size defects and finally produce acceptable reports. This
course is ideal for candidate NDT inspectors, consulting engineers, senior
managers as well as those directly involved in starting a career in
non-destructive testing activities.
