Why attend this course?

Auto UT interpretation is an ideal career development route for experienced ultrasonic technicians/engineers who have ultrasonic welds experience in pipeline-based structures and for weld inspectors or senior radiographers with interpretation experience.

The course is an intensive computer based 3 day course. Weld inspectors and senior radiographers would normally opt to take both course modules, whilst Level 2 ultrasonic welds experienced personnel would take the 3 day computer based module. Suitable for candidates with experience in ultrasonic welds but course suitability may accommodate a wider range of candidates. Detailed advice provided upon enquiry.
