Is it for me?



Alternating current field measurement (ACFM) is an electromagnetic inspection technique for the detection and sizing of surface breaking cracks in metallic components and welds. This NDT technique combines the advantages of the alternating current potential drop (ACPD) technique and Eddy Current Testing (ECT).

This course is designed for you if you are a currently or previously approved 3.4U Inspection Controller, a currently or previously approved CSWIP 3.1U or 3.2U Diver, a surface practitioner certificated under PCN or CSWIP, or qualified in a relevant engineering science.

What will I learn?

This course will provide you with an overview of NDT techniques, electrical and electromagnetic theory, ACFM detection - identification of cracks, weld inspection by ACFM techniques, sizing for length and depth, reporting, and backing-up data.

This training is 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:

  • Explain the theoretical principles
  • Carry out equipment functioning checks
  • Locate and size surface breaking fatigue cracks on uncoated and coated steel welds
  • Gain eligibility to sit CSWIP EMD examinations
