Suitable for:

Individuals with ultrasonic testing experience, who are looking to expand their knowledge into advanced ultrasonic applications and gain a qualification in Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD).

The eLearning training is part of the ‘blended learning’ToFD package; ‘a mix of eLearning and in-class practical training followed by certification to BS EN ISO 9712. The online modules can be studied when and where it is most convenient and at your own pace.

The package ‘ separates the learning of key concepts from the learning of a specific instrument,‘ coupled with interactive exercises focused on the principles behind set-up, calibration, acquisition and data analysis. An intuitive logical training structure, which invariably‘ helps the students understand key concepts, step-by-step.

In addition to the eLearning element of the Time of Flight Diffraction training, students will then attend practical classroom training for 5 days.

Course Content:
eLearning:
  • Module 1: Basic Principles of Ultrasound and Ultrasound Testing
  • Module 2: Principles Underlying Time of Flight Diffraction
  • Module 3: Data Analysis
  • Module 4: Review


Classroom:

ToFD theory and principles of diffraction, ToFD hardware (pulsers, receivers, motor control, encoders), ToFD data acquisition and interpretation, ToFD techniques, ToFD applications, equipment selection, calibration and optimisation, optimising PCS and angles, flaw location and sizing, limitations of detection and resolution, codes and standards, reporting.

The course ends with the certification examination.

Training in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9712.


Course Objectives:
  • To understand the theoretical background and limitations of ToFD applications
  • To correctly select probe/wedge to examine welded butt joints
  • To calibrate and set up the ToFD ultrasonic equipment
  • To locate and evaluate flaws in the weld body and HAZ
  • To differentiate defects from geometric features
  • To analyse scan data for location and size of defects in typical welded butt joints
  • To understand and apply digital processing processes (SAFT, linearization, averaging, filters etc)
  • To compile written instructions
  • To meet the CSWIP syllabus requirements

Additional Information:

In addition to the eLearning elementof the Time of Flight Diffraction training, students will then attend practical classroom training for 5 days.

What happens when I book on this blended learning course? All you need to do is book on the blended learning package in the same way as standard TWI courses. Your payment will be taken in full.
