The delivery by IMechE ETS as a sub-contractor to Skills Training UK, will cover both class room and online theoretical learning and practical applications of NDT. This will include NDT methods such as magnetic particle testing, ultrasonic testing and Radiographic Testing.

New apprenticeships dedicated to material testing were developed in partnership with employers as part of the trailblazer group led by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT). They are designed to help improve standards and address a widening skills gap within the sector.

Stephen Crawley, Director of Skills at Skills Training UK, said: “We are really excited to be working with IMechE as they are one of the leading NDT training schools in the world. They will bring a great amount of experience in NDT training to the apprenticeship and also provide an excellent training package that will ensure the apprentices receive a first class training programme.”

Skills Training UK is a leading Apprenticeships provider with a proven track record in the advanced engineering sector. They have welcomed the opportunity to work with us to deliver classroom based and onsite training focused on the NDT methods provided.
