Course Overview

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.
