NDT Apprenticeships

Helping organisations train and certify the next generation of NDT professionals

Training and certification for NDT Operator Level 2 and NDT Engineer Level 3 Apprenticeships available

IMechE Argyll Ruane have partnered with Skills Training UK as the lead provider to offer a first class service to employers wishing to take on an NDT apprentice.

The NDT Apprenticeship scheme have been created to address an ageing workforce whilst providing a clear route to a professional and rewarding career.

Developed by an employer group, lead by Rolls-Royce plc and supported by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT), the apprenticeships provide employers substantial funding for a range of aspiring candidates, whether it's school leavers or someone already working in the NDT industry.
 

Online training support

We are leading the development of online NDT training and certification and this will be a key feature available to apprentices to support their development. Apprentices will have access to course notes and exercises, as well as the forum where they will be able to ask our trainers any questions they may have.

Training locations

Courses will be normally delivered from the new multi-million pound Engineering Training Centre, just outside Sheffield city centre with excellent local amenities and transport links. Delegates will benefit from an excellent learning environment with the latest equipment and facilities on offer.

Training can also be provided at minimal extra cost on-site at your organisation, providing the necessary equipment is available and there are a minimum of three apprentices for each method and examination being delivered.

"Excellent facility and equipment and very clean. The best training facility I have been to, to do PCN courses"
