Radiographic Testing (Weld) - Level II

Course title

Overview

The Radiographic Testing (RT) Level II course is designed for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) personnel who perform practical inspections using radioactive materials or radiation-emitting devices. While the radiographic interpretation course focuses solely on interpreting radiographic images, both courses cover the same general theory syllabus to ensure a comprehensive understanding of image formation, sensitivity, and correct techniques.
