We are excited to announce the launch of our PCN accredited Level 2 Ultrasonic Phased Array (PAUT) NDT course in the Aberdeen region.

Expanding upon our established presence within Scotland, offering our phased array course in Aberdeen reinforces our commitment to ensuring IMechE Argyll Ruane’s exceptional training is accessible to all.

Scheduled 06 – 23 May, the Ultrasonic Phased Array course will be led by our Dunfermline based trainer, Stewart Gray.  Stewart has been an integral part of IMechE Argyll Ruane, Scotland since its inception, and his exceptional Ultrasonic Testing knowledge is fundamental to our training courses. Over the years, Stewart has refined and built upon his advanced Ultrasonic Testing knowledge and skills alongside industry professionals, now serving as the core PAUT tutor for our Scottish training courses.

This marks a key milestone for IMechE Argyll Ruane following the brand integration of Sheffield and Dunfermline facilities, whereby honing our structure and fine tuning our flexibility has enabled us to expand our offerings. Delivering this course in Aberdeen provides customers from northern regions with the opportunity to access our services, whilst minimising travel time, time away from home, and expenses.

What will students learn?

The course is designed to help candidates transition from conventional Ultrasonic Testing to Ultrasonic Phased Array Testing, providing comprehensive instruction on inspecting ferritic welds, castings, and wrought products using phased array ultrasonic testing.

Primarily utilising the Sonatest Veo3 equipment, students will learn about the principles of Phased Array probes, inspection sensitivity, flaw verification procedures, calibration and checks, data collection software, data analysis, and more. Alternative equipment can be utilised upon request.

Aligned with PCN (BS EN ISO 9712) standards, this course fulfils the training hour requirements specified by the relevant PCN syllabus and enables candidates for the Level 2 examinations. View the full course details for more information.
