Ultrasonic Inspection Training Course
day (40 hrs.) course provides basic knowledge on ultrasonic inspection for bond
inspection, immersion, and contact of various product forms, including plate and
weldments. Emphasis is placed
on the techniques described in ASME Section V and AWS D1.1.
This course is practical in nature, utilizes classroom participation, and allows
for hands on application in the use of ultrasonic equipment for compression wave
and shear wave calibration and scanning.
This course will:
classroom training hours in accordance with SNT-TC-1A and ANSI/ASNT CP-189
Provide hands on training with
contact compression and shear wave techniques on various items.
Prepares the candidate for Level I and II examinations.
Develop practical skills needed for
Develop skills necessary to locate weld
indications using shear waves in weldments.
Discuss and apply code and standards
