NDT non destructive testing training

Drones are increasingly being used offshore for inspections.


NDT Inspectors are employed in some of the most exciting and rewarding industries in the world including:

  • Construction
  • Aerospace
  • Defense
  • Laboratory
  • Petrochemical
  • Hydroelectric
  • Shipbuilding
  • Steel & Foundry
  • Utility & Power Services
  • Manufacturing
  • Nuclear

NDT inspectors perform routine inspections on everything from wind turbines to petrochemical plants.

Industrial Scale Fluorescent Magnetic Particle Inspection

US Rail line Infrastructure

The US moves all sorts of goods throughout the country by millions of miles of rail line. You guessed it. Every single foot of rail line requires NDT inspection.

Age of Major US Dams

Here’s a pretty cool map of all the major US dams. NDT inspectors use all sorts of techniques to inspect them. One of the newest ways is to pilot drones and perform Visual NDT inspection. We train with drones too!

US Dam Failures since the 1900s

Everything man made fails at some point. NDT inspectors are employed to prevent these failures.

Thousands of US Airports

There are thousands of US airports and hundreds of thousands of aircraft that all require NDT inspection. Not to mention all over the world if you’re into international travel!

600,000 Bridges in the US alone

There are aver 600,000 bridges in the US alone. They are required to be inspected every two years. There is a shortage of qualified NDT inspector to fill the demand.

One Hundred and four Nuclear Power plants in the US

Many of our TOC graduates have gone on to work the Nuke Outages as they are called, to make a nice income.

Major US Population areas

Here is a map of the major US population areas in the US. Anywhere there are areas of infrastructure there will be major NDT inspection going on.

United-States pipeline map

Senate passes new legislation to enhance the safety of the pipelines.

Wind Turbine Technician is the #1 fastest growing career in the US!

The US has a vast Wind turbine infrastructure already in place. Once again there is not enough qualified NDT inspectors to meet this demand. Wind turbine technician is the fastest growing field in the US!

NDT Inspection of Smoke Stacks

The inspection of smoke stacks can be hazardous for humans. No DT inspectors are now starting to use drones as it’s much safer and cost effective.

NDT Bridge Inspection

There are over 600,000 bridges in the United States alone and they are required to be inspected. Drones are proving to be an effective cost saving way to inspect them.

NDT Inspectors Use Drones Offshore Too

There are thousands of offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico that require NDT inspection. What better and more efficient way than the use of drones.

Career Flexibility

NDT Inspectors may have the option to live and work locally, live locally and travel, or relocate. There are opportunities to work both nationally and internationally.

NDT inspector Inspecting Building

NDT inspectors use hand held ultrasound equipment to inspect support columns in the construction of buildings. There are thousands of buildings being built around the world right now.

Construction Sites

Think of all the construction taking place all over the world. The use of drones makes the job of inspectors much easier and cost effective.

Offshore Wind Turbine Farms

Offshore Wind turbine farms are all over the world and are increasing. The growth of offshore wind farms is still in its infancy in the US. We have a lot of catching up to do.

Wind Turbines on Land

Wind turbine farms are growing all over the US and the world. The need for qualified NDT inspectors is on the rise.
The use of drones by NDT inspectors has been increasing, especially in Texas where there is more wind energy than the rest of the US combined.

Not Physically Demanding

While there’s no doubt NDT inspection requires technical knowledge and practical skills, inspecting is typically not a physically demanding occupation. And, if you’re a mid–life career changer looking to break into a rewarding, hands–on
career, training as an NDT Inspector could be an excellent opportunity for you.

Comprehensive Inspection Career

As a graduate of the NDT program you will be prepared to perform Nondestructive Testing using NDT methods such as Visual Testing (VT), Magnetic Particle (MT), Dye Penetrant (PT), Ultrasonics (UT), Eddy Current (ET) and Radiographic Testing
