Overview

Aerospace Inspection Training offers Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Inspection courses for the Aerospace Industry. Our courses run throughout the year and cover all significant NDT testing methods.

AIT is a part of the Morgan Ward Group of companies, alongside the calibration/repair company NDT MainCal and the EASA, FAA-approved inspection company Morgan Ward.

Our instructors are all highly experienced and hold certifications to level 3 with extensive backgrounds in the aerospace inspection. Our proven track record of high-quality instruction and hands-on teaching sets us apart from other training schools. It has helped us to become the major training provider for many of the world’s top aviation companies.

Started over 30 years ago, we’re a BINDT-approved outside agency offering EN4179/NAS 410 and PCN AERO training and examinations from our school in Stansted or on-site; we also offer sub-contract Level 3 services and bespoke NDT training courses.

Course Description

This 16 hour course is intended to provide the participant with a thorough understanding of basic radiation safety and an awareness of the contents of the Ionising Radiations Regulations.

This course meets the requirements for the PCN Basic Radiation Safety Examination and is an ideal programme for all radiography trainees, assistants, health and safety personnel, quality control inspectors, or any personnel involved in projects where radiographic inspection is being conducted.

Course Content

  • Basic concepts
  • Equipment
  • Radiation units and dose limitations : quantities and units, brief summary of legislation, dose limitation
  • Biological effects
  • Principle of protection from external radiation
  • Shielding calculations
  • Personal dosimetry
  • Radiation monitoring
  • Specific requirements of regulations
  • Accidents and hazards in perspective
  • Emergency procedures

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this seminar the student should be able to:

  1. Have an understanding of the basic concepts of ionising radiations.
  2. Be familiar with the terminology used in radiation protection.
  3. Be familiar with the main requirements of the following: Ionising Radiations Regulations (1999), The Approved Code of Practice Associated Guidance Notes, and The Ionising Radiations (Outside Workers) Regulations (1993).
  4. Have an understanding of the potential hazards (health effects) associated with the use of ionising radiation.
  5. Have an understanding of the principles of practical protection to minimise exposure to ionising radiation.
  6. Have an understanding of the good working practices required to keep radiation doses as low as reasonably practicable.
  7. Be able to calculate source outputs and dose rates, and have an understanding of the inverse square law.
  8. Be aware of the appropriate action to take in emergency situations.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this seminar the student should be able to:

  1. Describe the basic principles of bond testing.
  2. List the main methods of bond testing.
  3. Describe the cause and effect of various types of mechanical bond testing.
  4. Describe the operational steps required to carry out a bond test in each of the main methods.
  5. Perform a bond test in each of the main methods.
  6. Interpret and evaluate the test results.
  7. Locate defects in various composite structures with a high probability of detection.

Note: This course is targeted at students who have previous experience in ultrasonic inspection of aircraft structure. Although previous knowledge in Ultrasonic inspection is not essential, Aerospace Inspection Training are able to provide a 2 day introduction course covering ultrasonic theory in preparation for this course.
