Course Overview

Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI or MT) is one of the most widely utilized nondestructive testing methods and is used for detecting surface and sub-surface flaws and defects in ferromagnetic material. Describe NDT methods of magnetization, test variables, calibration procedures, and equipment operation following prescribed techniques. Inspect and analyze test samples such as weldments, castings, and machine parts.

With the skills gained in this course, you will meet the training requirements for Level II Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) 48.9712-2014 for certification of NDT personnel – Magnetic Particle Testing (MT).

Students should be aware that to become certified to CGSB MT Level 2, NRCAN requires, (in addition to classroom training):
i) relevant work experience,
ii) code of conduct form,
iii) proof of vision to qualify for NDE certification
iv) successful completion of an Authorized Examination Center (AEC) supervised Practical exam and two Theoretical exams.

Prerequisites:

1) Math (MATE555) Effective October 2, 2017, prior to taking any NDT training courses all students will be required to either successfully complete the NAIT math skills test or provide evidence acceptable to NAIT that you have successfully passed a math examination administered by an NDTCB Recognized Training Organization (RTO)

2) Materials and Processes (MATE650): Applicants must pass the Materials and Processes examination before taking training courses in non-destructive testing (NDT) methods. The examination must be invigilated in person. The Recognized Training Organization (RTO) must provide the grade obtained to the NRCan Non-Destructive Testing Certification Board (NDTCB) as part of a candidate’s application for certification.
