What will I learn

Ultrasonic Testing Level II

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is a highly effective nondestructive testing (NDT) method that utilizes high-frequency sound waves to inspect materials for flaws. Building upon the foundational knowledge gained in Ultrasonic Testing Level I, our Ultrasonic Testing Level II course provides students with a deeper understanding of UT principles and practices while fulfilling the required 40 hours of classroom training.
