By completing the Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) Level 1 and/or Level 2 training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of MPI.
  • Apply MPI techniques to inspect welds, castings, and forgings using various magnetizing methods.
  • Write clear and concise inspection procedures and test reports.
  • Meet the syllabus requirements for Level 1 or Level 2, including both training and examinations.

Course Content:

The Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) Level 1 and/or Level 2 training course covers the following topics:

  • Principles of MPI
  • Testing procedures
  • Detectability of defects
  • Product technology
  • Interpretation and reporting (Level 2 only, including interpretation to an acceptable standard)
  • Control and maintenance checks

Prerequisites:

To achieve Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) Level 1 or Level 2 certification, the minimum required duration of training is as follows:

  • Level 1: 16 hours
  • Level 2: 24 hours (or a combination of Level 1 and Level 2 hours totaling 40 hours for Direct Entry)
  • Please note that employer-based schemes may have different duration requirements based on experience and limited qualifications specific to the products being tested.

Additionally, the minimum duration of work experience for MPI Level 1 and/or Level 2 certification is as follows:

  • NDT Level 1: 1 month based on a minimum of 160 hours per month or by scheme requirements
  • NDT Level 2: An additional 3 months (a total of 4 months when combined with Level 1 experience) at a minimum of 160 hours per calendar month
  • It is important to note that while the examination can be taken before or after completing the required work experience, a 'Certificate of Examination' or 'Certificate of Qualification' will only be issued upon providing proof of experience.

After completing and passing the examination, a 'results notice' will be issued by the approved Examination Centre, pending scheme requirements. This notice does not serve as a certification of qualification. Candidates may be given up to 24 months to complete the required work experience, with documented 'on-the-job' experience endorsed, before a 'Certificate of Qualification' is issued by BINDT/PCN for ISO9712 certification or by the candidate's employer for their specific scheme.
