Suitable for:

All personnel including testers, inspectors, engineers and surveyors who require a thorough and comprehensive introduction to ultrasonic testing of welded joints.

This course is also suitable for personnel working in the aerospace industry and can be found under the Aerospace section.

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.
