Ultrasonic Testing Level 1

This course is a combination of the Ultrasonic Testing Introduction course with appropriate Ultrasonic Testing theory and practical training. This course is PCN recognised and provides excellent preparation for Ultrasonic Testing Level 1 examinations. It meets in full the training hour requirements as specified by the relevant PCN documentation.

Ultrasonic Testing Level 2

This course is a combination of the UT Introduction course with appropriate Ultrasonic Testing theory and practical training. This course is PCN recognised and provides excellent preparation for Ultrasonic Testing Level 2 examinations. It meets in full the training hour requirements as specified by the relevant PCN documentation.

Ultrasonic Testing – Level 3 – Online

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) is one of only two ISO 9712 inspection techniques that is considered volumetric. In this context volumetric implies that the full body of the component is subjected to testing.

Ultrasonic Testing Level 3

This guidance course is aimed at the PCN Level 3 requirements for Ultrasonic Testing practitioners. The main objective of the course is to make candidates fully aware of the scope of the examination and level of knowledge required. It will also enable candidates to identify their weak subject areas. Advice will be given on any further tuition required.

Ultrasonic Testing Refresher

Ideal for those who already have a basic understanding of the techniques of ultrasonic inspection and would like intensive instruction to improve their knowledge and increase their experience in preparation for a recertification examination.

Ultrasonic Testing: Critical Defect Sizing

This programme is only available to holders of current PCN Level 2 Ultrasonic Practitioner Welds certification, which is applicable to at least two groups and held for at least 6 months.

Ultrasonic Testing of Wrought Plate incl. Thickness Gauging

This course teaches both basic general Ultrasonic theory as well as the practical aspects required to perform thickness checks, locate & size wrought defects e.g. laminations in accordance with ISO 20807.

Ultrasonic Testing Nozzle (3.8)/Nodes (3.9)/”T” Sections (3.7)

This course extends your practical Ultrasonic Testing knowledge in the Welds category to include Nozzles (3.8) & Nodes (3.9). In gaining Nozzle (3.8) certification you are also then certified to test "T" Welds (3.7). We recommend 4 days of training for both Nozzle & Node. However, these can be done individually.

Ultrasonic Testing: An Introduction

This course can be used in preparation for a PCN examination in Ultrasonic Testing but we would advise that candidates undertake further training relating to the specific sector they wish to certify in such as welds, forgings and castings.
