Eddy Current Testing - Level  II


Course Duration:     5 Days (40 Hours)                                                                                                   Course Fees:     $1195
Eddy Current Testing - Level II, Classroom NDT training course is developed to meet the requirements of ASNT SNT-TC-1A, CP -189, NAS 410, and other equivalent standards and customer-specific written practice for training and certification in this method of Non-Destructive Testing personnel.
After completing the eddy current testing level II course, you will get in-depth knowledge of Eddy Current principles, equipment, and application of eddy current techniques to test various product forms for paint layer thickness, corrosion detection, surface crack detection, etc.
Training Examination & Certification Requirement:
During this Eddy Current Testing training class, you will give general theory, Specification, and practical examinations. You are required to successfully pass these three examinations with a minimum of 70% grading in each. The average grading of all three examinations should be 80% minimum as per the requirement of ASNT SNT-TC-1A 2011 or NAS 410.
OJT Hours: As per requirements of ASNT SNT-TC-1A, you need to have a minimum of 630 Hours of on-job training (OJT) after completion of training classes for certification in this method.
Pre-Requisite: A person attending direct Level II needs to have 40 Hours of Level I classroom hours in this method.  
Basic Principle of Eddy Current Testing:
This method uses an electrical current known as eddy current, which is generated by an induced alternating magnetic field in a conductive material. Eddy current flows in circles at and just below the material's surface. Interruptions in the flow of eddy current, caused by imperfections, dimensional changes, or changes in the material's conductive and permeability properties, can be detected with the proper equipment.
