Supporting NDT apprentices affected by the liquidation of Skills Training UK  

Posted on: September 8th, 2023
Categorised: NDT

Following the announcement of the liquidation of Skills Training UK (STUK), we have been liaising with our clients to determine how we can best support affected learners. 

Since the formation of the NDT Apprenticeships, IMechE Argyll Ruane have been involved in their ongoing development and feel strongly about supporting the future of our industry.  

We understand the recent liquidation has created a sense of uncertainty about the future of the NDT apprenticeships and most importantly, about how affected learners can continue to gain their NDT qualifications, which were a fundamental part of their apprenticeship.   

How we can support 

We’re offering a special discounted rate of up to 25% on NDT training courses* to organisations whose employees were enrolled on an NDT Apprenticeship with STUK and still require formal NDT training and examinations. 

Available for the following NDT Apprenticeship schemes:  

  • Level 2 NDT Operator 
  • Level 3 NDT Engineering Technician  

Available for the following Level 2 methods:  

  • Visual Testing 
  • Magnetic Testing 
  • Penetrant Testing 
  • Ultrasonic Testing  
  • Eddy Current Testing 
  • Radiographic Testing 
  • Phased Array  
  • Time of Flight Diffraction   

Why train with us?  

You’ll be trained by industry experts in our state-of-the-art facilities, utilising the latest equipment. You’ll be supported from initial contact, ensuring you will leave feeling confident to undertake your exam and competent in applying knowledge learned when back in the workplace.
