Course Overview

Radiographic Inspection (RT) is a method of non-destructive testing that uses either X-Radiation or Gamma Radiation to pass through components and expose the film beneath it. Identify the internal structure and integrity of a specimen, apply the proper use of radiation equipment, practice radiographic techniques and principles, film processing, and distinguish the production of X-rays and gamma rays to assist in ensuring the integrity of materials, components or structures. You will be part of a team who works to ensure safety and quality. Through inspection and testing, your findings may help to increase production or assist to extend the life of equipment and system components. Delve into Radiography Inspection and get one step closer to your Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) Level I Certification.

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 Radiographic Testing (RT).

Students should be aware that to become certified to Level I CGSB RT, 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.

3) For Radiographic Testing (RT) only, as a pre-requisite to training, candidates must complete radiation safety training (minimum 8 hours) provided by an RTO. A candidate who holds valid Certified Exposure Device Operator certification issued by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has met the radiation safety training requirements.
