What will I learn

The Radiographic Testing (RT) Level I course is designed to provide training to Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) personnel who will be performing practical inspections using radioactive materials or radiation-emitting devices. This course focuses on the execution of radiographic inspections, while a separate radiographic interpretation course is available for those interested in interpreting radiographic images. However, both courses cover the same general theory syllabus to ensure a comprehensive understanding of image formation, sensitivity, and correct techniques.

Course Content:

The RT Level I course covers a range of essential topics to equip participants with the necessary knowledge and skills. The course includes:

  • Basic radiation safety
  • Properties of X-ray and Gamma rays
  • Atomic structures
  • Generation of X-rays
  • Natural and artificial gamma radiation sources
  • Gamma-ray equipment
