Non-destructive testing & Inspection Training

Special note

Candidates attempting a PCN examination must meet the PCN/GEN requirements. If attempting an ASNT / EN4179 / NAS410 examination the requirements of your company’s written practice must be met.

This course is only one of six long-term courses available as standard training/examination programmes which vary between 26 and 52 weeks. Please enquire about this comprehensive range of training options.

The course prepares candidates for the PCN Level 1 and Level 2 examinations in a number of methods, ASNT Level I and II assessments and  ICorr approvals in Paint and Pipeline Coating Inspection.

Candidates will have the opportunity to attend most courses during the 26 week training period, although candidates may meet restrictions when wishing to attempt certain examinations due to experience pre-requisites. If a candidate is able to gain 6-12 months of relevant NDT experience, training can be biased towards PCN qualifications.
