Is it for me?

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) is an advanced non-destructive examination technique that uses ultrasonic probes capable of pulsing elements individually at different time intervals. Compared with conventional ultrasonics, PAUT provides higher probability of detection, it is faster, more reliable, and it provides 2D or 3D images and a permanent record of the inspection through the data recorded.

This course is designed for any experienced Level 2 qualified ultrasonic technicians looking to expand their knowledge and gain a qualification in phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT).

If time is an issue, please consider our blended learning option - study theory and concepts when and where you choose, then join the classroom sessions for hands-on practical.

What will I learn?

Classroom content
This course will teach you the principles of phased array inspection, principles of phased array probes, principles of inspection sensitivity, and phased array instrument. You will also learn about scanning with phased array probes, calibration and checks, software for data collection and data analysis, and principles of data analysis. The course will also teach you about software familiarity, use of software tools for defect detection and sizing, data analysis, procedures for verification of flaw existence and position, and reporting.

Typical equipment used on the course: Olympus Omniscan, TD Focus Scan, Sonatest Harfang, Zetec Topaz, M2M Gekko equipment. If your course is equipment specific please contact us to confirm the equipment that will be used for the event.

The training is in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 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 background of phased array applications
  • Correctly select probe/wedge to examine welded butt joints
  • Calibrate and set up the phased array ultrasonic equipment
  • Locate and evaluate flaws in the weld body, HAZ, and parent metal lamination
  • Analyse scan data for location and size of defects in typical welded butt joints
  • Accurately report weld condition
  • Differentiate defects from geometric features
  • Compile a written instruction
  • Meet the CSWIP and PCN syllabus requirements
