TWI Training offers an online course suitable for NDT personnel, inspectors, and technicians responsible for weld inspection, casting, and forging inspection during fabrication, or in-service inspection. The course consists of 3 days of theory training via Zoom or similar platforms and 2 days of practical classroom training. Additionally, there will be a 1-day examination, which will take place when TWI Centres re-open post-COVID-19.

This course covers materials, methods, compatibility of materials, equipment, and safety aspects, and provides practical exercises and methods of assessing sensitivity. Attendees requiring only Level 1 training will carry out practical applications to written instructions. Training is in accordance with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9712 and ends with a written and practical test.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to explain the basic principles of penetrant inspection methods, carry out penetrant inspection using solvent-removable, water-washable, and post-emulsifiable/removal processes, and write clear and concise inspection instructions and test reports.

There are no mandatory course entry requirements. However, for certification, a minimum duration of experience prior to or following success in the qualification examination is required. Level 1 requires 1 month of experience, while Level 2 requires 3 months of experience (Direct Level 2 - 4 months). Certification will not be issued until successful completion of the examination and the required experience is achieved.

As a special offer, TWI Training is providing free pre-course eLearning when booking this course. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, TWI Training offers live online courses, allowing individuals to improve their knowledge and expertise regardless of location.
