This comprehensive course is ideal for personnel across various industries such as testing, inspection, engineering, and surveying who require a thorough understanding of ultrasonic testing of welded joints. It is also suitable for those in the aerospace industry and can be found under the Aerospace section.

For those with time constraints, our blended learning option allows you to study theory and concepts at your own pace before attending practical classroom sessions.

In the classroom, you will learn the basic principles of sound, including sound generation and detection, as well as how sound behaves in different materials. The course also covers flaw detectors, angled beam probes for weld scanning, welding processes, and defects, practical exercises on test specimens with simulated flaws, examination of parent plates and butt welds, and instruction writing.

This one-week course is designed for PCN certification, and training follows the requirements of ISO20807, concluding with the certification examination.

By the end of the course, you will be able to explain the theoretical background of ultrasonic testing techniques, calibrate ultrasonic equipment, measure steel plate thickness and levels of attenuation, locate and evaluate laminations, select the correct probe type for examining welded butt joints in steel plate and aerospace components/structures, report on the location and size of defects in typically welded butt joints, interpret code requirements, and meet the syllabus requirements for PCN/CSWIP Levels 1 and 2.
