Suitable for:

Aimed at candidates looking to expand their current knowledge of radiographic systems and/or are looking at the possibility of introducing a digital system into their place of work/company.

Course Content:

Principles of digital radiography; equipment standards for CR systems; radiographic techniques with CR; calibration of equipment (use of phantom); image processing using phosphor screens; software specific parameters; calibration of measuring tools; effects of magnification; definition of accuracy constraints and capabilities of CR system; modification of image; use of analysis software; acceptance and reporting.
This course ends with the certification exam.

Training in accordance with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9712.

Certification/Awarding Body:

Additional Information:

Course candidates must be qualified to a minimum of Level 1 or 2 Radiographic Testing or Interpretation conforming to BS EN ISO 9712.

Please note:
All candidates attending a PCN examination (initial, retest or renewal) must provide photo ID (e.g Driving licence number, Passport number, PCN ID Card) on the day of sitting the examination. Failure to do so will result in the candidate being turned away.

PCN or CSWIP Level 2 DRT (Weld, Casting or Profile/Tangential) certification will be offered.
