Is it for me?

This course is 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, which provides 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 Ultrasonic Testing training, you will then attend practical classroom training for 10 days.

What will I learn?

This course will cover:

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.

Training in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9712 and ends with the certification examination.

What will I leave with?

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the theoretical background and limitations of ToFD applications
  • Correctly select probe/wedge to examine welded butt joints
  • Calibrate and set up the ToFD ultrasonic equipment
  • Locate and evaluate flaws in the weld body and HAZ
  • Differentiate defects from geometric features
  • Analyse scan data for location and size of defects in typical welded butt joints
  • Understand and apply digital processing processes (SAFT, linearization, averaging, filters etc)
  • Compile written instructions
  • Meet the CSWIP syllabus requirements
