Is it for me?

This course is suitable for ultrasonic testing equipment vendors, auditors or supervisors – anyone who works indirectly with ultrasonic testing. The Ultrasonic Testing Appreciation eLearning package brings you into contact with ultrasonic testing, even if the testing is conducted by someone else.

This eLearning package gives you 60 days access to the eLearning materials.

The training is delivered step by step, one section at a time, but free of any time pressure to complete the individual modules.

Upon completing the full package you will be awarded a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.

  • NDT, certification, ultrasound, basic notions, ultrasound waves, dB system
  • Instrument, probes and wedges
  • Scans and views
  • Producing ultrasound, wave propagation, coverage, techniques
  • Procedures, training, acceptance criteria
  • Set-ups, essential variables
  • Inspections, probe positioning, scanning
  • Data evaluation
  • Data management

Module 2: 0-Degree Ultrasonic Testing

  • Type of inspections, steel making, corrosion
  • Instrument inner workings, probes, 0-degree wedges, scanners
  • A-Scan, cursors and gates
  • Ultrasound wave, beam
  • 0-degree set-ups, essential variables
  • 0-degree calibration, beam edge plot, velocity, wedge delay, DAC, TCG, encoder
  • Scanning pattern
  • Thickness measurements, indication evaluation, depth, length, width

Module 3:  Angled Ultrasonic Testing

  • Types of welds, welding methods, gouging
  • Angled wedges
  • A-Scan, legs
  • Refraction, beam angle
  • Beam edge plot, transfer correction
  • Angle beam calibration, beam index point, velocity, wedge delay, sensitivity, DAC, TCG
  • Pulse duration check, resolution check
  • Evaluation, assessing defects, probe movements, echostatic and echodynamic patterns
