Entry Level, Hands–On Training for a Career in Nondestructive Testing
in MT, PT, UT, VT, ET and RT, Level I & II
Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is a type of quality control inspection that does not harm the part being tested. NDT Inspectors use sophisticated technology to look through steel and concrete to identify and diagnose flaws without disrupting the integrity of the structure. An example of Nondestructive Testing would be performing xray on a pipe weld to look for cracks that might cause a leak.

Certified NDT Technicians perform inspections all over the world in nuclear power plants and oil refineries, as well as on airplanes, ships, bridges, oil rigs and much more.
