What will I learn?

In this comprehensive course on Ultrasonic Testing Thickness Measurement, you will learn the fundamental principles underlying sound, its generation, and detection, along with its behaviour within different materials. Through practical training sessions, you'll gain hands-on experience with flaw detectors and zero degree probes for wrought product inspection. Additionally, you'll explore various welding processes and learn to identify associated weld defects and it inspection limited to a theoretical level only. The course will include rigorous exercises on test specimens containing simulated flaws, enabling you to hone your skills in flaw detection and assessment.

The classroom sessions will cover a range of topics, including:
• Basic principles of sound generation and detection
• Behaviour of sound in different materials
• Understanding flaw detectors and their applications
• Practical exercises involving test specimens with simulated flaws
• Examination techniques for plates and welds
This intensive one-week course is tailored specifically for PCN certification and aligns with the requirements of ISO20807. The training culminates with a certification examination to validate your newfound expertise.
