Developing people

NDT certification gives companies the peace of mind that their personnel are not only properly trained but also equipped to carry out NDT testing safely and effectively.

Only correctly qualified personnel should undertake the critical role of non-destructive testing. To make it easier for employers to implement and manage this, the various industry bodies have developed central NDT certification programmes.

The two main schemes are:

  • PCN (Personal Certification for NDT) developed by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT)
  • ASNT developed by the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT)

Nurture a true safety culture

Developing people is important.

Providing your NDT personnel with recognised qualifications improves in-house capability and supports the retention of experienced people. And having them learn from NDT experts, in a highly practical environment, means that training can be directly applied to tackle challenges and improve your business.

An investment in health and safety training can develop a positive health and safety culture in the workplace. It also greatly reduces the chances of litigation and compensation claims for accidents or illness.

Improve your in-house capability

The non-destructive testing courses held at NDT Consultants Training School cover the basic physical phenomena on which many industries rely for the safety and quality of their engineering systems and structures.

This is supported by extensive classroom teaching of the practical applications of the methods and comprehensive practical work in our well-equipped laboratory.

Our training centre is staffed by fully qualified personnel certified to PCN and ASNT Level III ­­– the highest level of NDT certification available. They each have a wide range of industrial experience to complement their qualifications.

In addition, we also offer Level III certification for NDT personnel who’ve already successfully completed Level II.
