NDT level I / II training

Non-Destructive Testing are techniques used to evaluate the properties of materials and components without causing damage. These tastings are crucial in industries like manufacturing, construction, transport, defense, aerospace etc., where the integrity of materials and structures is paramount. The tests are carried out by specifically certified individuals in each NDT techniques. The certification of NDT personnel is a mandatory requirement across the industry.

Non-Destructive Testing Level I & level II training courses prepares the candidates for these techniques and after successfully completing the theory and practical examination, qualifies them as a certified individual capable of performing the non-destructive examinations at construction shops / sites as well as running facilities. The training consists of advanced instruction, practical training and examination by ASNT Level III certified individual in various techniques. NDT Level I / II training typically covers the following topics:

1.Basic Principles: Understanding the fundamental principles behind non-destructive testing methods, including the physics and mechanics involved.

2. Specific Techniques: In-depth training in specific NDT methods such as:

  • a. Ultrasonic Testing (UT): Using high-frequency sound waves to detect surface and internal flaws, inhomogeneity &/or measure material thickness.
  • b. Radiographic Testing (RT): Using radiographic source (X-rays or gamma rays) to inspect the internal structure of the component.
  • c. Magnetic Particle Testing (MT): Detecting surface and near-surface flaws in ferromagnetic materials using magnetic fields.
  • d. Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT): Identifying surface-breaking defects by applying a liquid penetrant and developer.
  • e. Eddy Current Testing (ET): Examining conductive materials for surface and subsurface defects using electromagnetic induction.
  • f. Visual Testing (VT): Direct visual examination of a component's surface for defects.
  • g. Other test methods like acoustic emission, leak testing etc.

There are many sub-techniques / variations under each of the above techniques.

3. Equipment Operation: Learning how to operate NDT equipment safely and effectively, and performing calibration as per specified procedures.

4. Interpretation of Results: Developing the ability to interpret test results accurately, distinguishing between acceptable and unacceptable indications.

5. Standards and Codes: Familiarization with relevant industry standards, codes, and regulations governing NDT practices, such as those from organizations like ASNT (American Society for Nondestructive Testing), ISO (International Organization for Standardization), ASTM International (American Society for Testing and Materials), and others.

6. Safety Procedures: Understanding safety protocols associated with NDT methods, including radiation safety, electrical hazards, and handling of hazardous materials.

7. Practical Experience: Hands-on training and practice with NDT techniques under the supervision of experienced instructors.

8. Documentation and Reporting: Learning how to properly document testing procedures, results, and reports in compliance with industry standards.

After completing NDT Level II training, individuals typically undergo certification exams administered by organizations like ASNT or employer-specific certification programs to demonstrate their proficiency in the techniques they've been trained-in. The certification process consists of class-room and practical training for specified hours, practical experience as trainee, passing of general, specific, practical & eye examination. The eye examination is conducted by ASNT Level III or a medical practitioner and consists of passing near / far distance and color blindness check.

This certification validates their competence and qualifies them to perform NDT inspections independently or under supervision, depending on the specific requirements of their job roles.

The certification remains valid for 3 to 5 years depending on the certification standard.

ISO internal auditors (ISO 9001, 14001, 45001)

ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 are international standards that focus on quality management, environmental management, and occupational health and safety management, respectively. ISO certifications has become an integral part of organizations, since ISO certifications is seen as a symbol and guarantee of quality products and HSE compliance. Apart from standardizing and stream-lining the business processes, ISO certification program also serves as a marketing tool and help boost companies’ businesses.

Every ISO certified organization maintains a pool of internal ISO auditors to check the compliance to ISO standards. As such, ISO internal auditor training is essential for all individuals who are tasked with assessing and evaluating an organization's compliance with ISO standards.

1. Understanding ISO Standards

2. Internal Audit Concepts

3. Audit Planning and Preparation

4. Audit Techniques and Methodologies

5. Auditing Skills Development

6. Audit Documentation

7. Reporting and Communication

8. Corrective Actions and Follow-up

9. Continual Improvement

10. ISO Standard Integration

11. Legal and Regulatory Requirements

12. Practical Exercises and Case Studies

Upon completion of ISO internal auditor training, participants have to write an examination or assessment to evaluate their understanding of the training material. Successful candidates are certified as an ISO internal auditor, demonstrating competence in auditing organizations for compliance with ISO standards. This certification is very valuable for individuals involved in quality, environmental, and occupational health and safety roles within organizations. The training is also very fruitful for new joiners and less experienced employees, as it gives a good oversight of full organizations roles and responsibilities, procedures, forms formats. It is also important for consultants providing auditing services to clients.

ASME and NBIC codes

ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) and NBIC (National Board Inspection Code) codes provide standards and guidelines for the design, construction, inspection, testing, and repair of pressure equipment.

Training on ASME and NBIC Codes is crucial for professionals working in industries involving pressure vessels, boilers, and other pressure equipment. Such training is highly technical and is recommended for all employees who are involved in ASME & NBIC Code work. Following items are covered in the training:

1. Introduction to ASME Codes: Understanding the purpose, scope, and structure of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Codes, which include various sections such as Section I, II, III, IV, V, VIII, IX, X,and XI.

2. Introduction to NBIC: Familiarization with the National Board Inspection Code (NBIC), which provides standards for the inspection, repair, and alteration of boilers, pressure vessels, and pressure relief devices.
