"Course Description

The Penetrant Level 3 training programme at Lavender International can be revamped to provide a more comprehensive and up-to-date training experience for candidates. Here are some suggestions:

Course Content:

  • Introduction: Provide an overview of Penetrant Inspection (PT), its advantages and limitations, and its importance in various industries.
  • Principles of PT: Cover the basic principles of PT, including surface preparation, application of penetrants, development of indications, and interpretation of test results.
  • Equipment: Discuss the various equipment and tools used in PT, such as penetrant materials, cleaning agents, inspection booths, and UV lamps.
  • Testing Techniques: Provide an overview of the various testing techniques used in PT, including visible and fluorescent methods.
  • Standards and Specifications: Discuss the relevant industry standards and specifications for PT, such as CP 105, EN 25017, ASNT, BINDT, SNT-TC-1A, EN4179, and NAS410.
  • Interpretation of Test Results: Describe the methods used to interpret test results and the criteria used to determine acceptability.
  • Safety Precautions: Emphasize the importance of safety precautions during PT, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), proper ventilation, and handling of equipment and chemicals.
  • Quality Control: Discuss the importance of quality control in PT, including calibration of equipment, verification of materials, and monitoring of testing processes.

Course Structure:

  • The course should be structured to include both theoretical and practical components to ensure that candidates have a solid understanding of the PT process and can apply this knowledge in real-world situations.
  • The practical component should include hands-on training in the use of equipment and tools, preparation of surfaces for inspection, testing techniques, and post-test procedures.
  • The course should also include assessments to ensure that candidates have acquired the necessary knowledge and skills to perform PT effectively.


  • Upon completion of the training, candidates should receive a certificate of competency indicating their level of certification (Level 1, 2, or 3) and the relevant industry standard to which they have been trained.
  • The certificate should also indicate the scope of certification, including the types of materials and defects that the candidate is certified to inspect.

Continuous Learning:

To ensure that candidates maintain their knowledge and skills, the training provider should offer refresher courses and ongoing professional development opportunities.

By updating the course content and structure to align with current industry best practices, candidates will be better equipped to perform PT effectively and safely, while also meeting industry standards and requirements.
