Ultrasonic Testing (UT) uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements. Ultrasonic inspection can be used for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization, and more. Inspect typical samples such as welds, castings, forgings and rolled products. Explore the production of ultrasounds, perform calibration procedures, and testing techniques. Record and report the results.
With the skills gained in this course, you will meet the training requirements for Level I Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) Standard 48.9712-2014 for certification of NDT personnel in Ultrasonic Testing (UT).
Students should be aware that to become certified to Level I CGSB UT, 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.
Required before enrollment:
1) Math (MATE555 or NDTC200) 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 or NDTC100): 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.
