Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) - Level II

Course title

Overview

The Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) Level II course provides comprehensive training in the advanced technique of ultrasonic testing for weld inspections in various industrial applications. PAUT utilizes a probe consisting of multiple small ultrasonic transducers that can be pulsed independently. By controlling the timing of the pulses, a constructive interference pattern is created, resulting in the emission of a quasi-plane ultrasonic beam at a specific angle determined by the progressive time delay. This electronically steerable beam can be swept through the object under examination, and the data from multiple beams are combined to generate a visual image representing a cross-sectional slice of the object.

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) - Level II

The Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT Welds) Level II course provides comprehensive training in the advanced technique of ultrasonic testing for weld inspections in various industrial applications. PAUT utilizes a probe consisting of multiple small ultrasonic transducers that can be pulsed independently. By controlling the timing of the pulses, a constructive interference pattern is created, resulting in the emission of a quasi-plane ultrasonic beam at a specific angle determined by the progressive time delay. This electronically steerable beam can be swept through the object under examination, and the data from multiple beams are combined to generate a visual image representing a cross-sectional slice of the object. The controllability of the beam is achieved through the individual pulsing of the probe's multiple elements, which are timed by a computer. The term "phased" refers to the timing, while "array" refers to the multiple elements.

Course Content:

The course covers the following topics to equip participants with the necessary skills and knowledge:

  • Principles of Phased Array probes
  • Sensitivity principles in inspection
  • Phased Array Instrumentation
  • Scanning techniques using Phased Array probes
  • Calibration and verification procedures
  • Software utilization for data collection and analysis
  • Principles and Methodologies of data analysis
  • Familiarization with software tools for defect detection and sizing
  • Procedures for verifying the existence and positioning of flaws
  • Reporting of test results

Responsibilities of Certified Level II:

Upon successful completion of the course, a certified Level II individual in PAUT will possess the competence to perform NDT according to established procedures. The certified professional may be authorized by their employer to:

  • Select the appropriate Ultrasonic Phased Array technique for the intended test method
  • Define the limitations and applications of the testing method
  • Adapt Ultrasonic Phased Array codes, standards, specifications, and procedures into instructions suitable for the working conditions
  • Configure and verify equipment settings for Ultrasonic Phased Array testing
  • Conduct and oversee Ultrasonic Phased Array tests
  • Interpret and evaluate test results according to applicable standards, codes, specifications, or procedures
  • Prepare written instructions for Ultrasonic Phased Array testing
  • Execute and supervise tasks at or below Level 2
  • Guide personnel at or below Level 2
  • Report the results of Ultrasonic Phased Array tests accurately and effectively

Training & Exam Duration:

The training duration for Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing varies based on the candidate's prior certification level and the chosen certification scheme:

  • PCN PAUT L2 (for candidates with Level 1): Training - 80 Hours
  • PCN PAUT L2 (for candidates without prior Level 1): Training - 100 Hours
  • SNT-TC-1A Training: 100 Hours

Experience Requirement:

  • For PCN Level II certification in PAUT, candidates must possess a minimum of 3 months of supervised work experience in the field. The experience requirement is based on a nominal 40 hours per week or the legal workweek duration.
  • Prerequisite for PCN Level 2 PAUT & TOFD:
  • Candidates aiming for PCN Level 2 PAUT certification must hold at least PCN Level 2 Ultrasonic Testing (UT) certification.
  • Note: Certification schemes may vary, and candidates are advised to consult the specific requirements of the certifying body or organization.
