What Does NDT or NDE stand for?

NDT stands for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) or Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) is a method of examining a part or assembly without altering or destroying the test object. It is used extensively in all types of operations requiring the use of machinery and piping systems, such as offshore, refineries, shipbuilding, aviation, and nuclear plants. Since NDT allows a thorough inspection of a component without damaging or altering the integrity of the component, it is a valuable technique that can save time and money in product inspection. Ensuring product reliability in the operation of any component is the goal of NDT, to protect lives and property. There is no real difference in NDT and NDE; it is just a choice by different industries.

What is difference between Level I, II and III?

NDT certification schemes conform to three levels of qualification designated as Levels I, II, and III.
Level I is qualified to perform work under direct supervision of higher level technicians. Test results may be reported, but no data evaluation may be done by Level I technicians. Work is typically done according to specific work instructions.
Level II technicians are qualified to set up and calibrate testing equipment, conduct testing according to standards, with some flexibility in decision-making, and also to supervise Level technicians. They are also able to interpret and evaluate test results.
Level III are engineers or experienced technicians who may establish NDT procedures, direct training and laboratories. They are expected to have a wide knowledge of materials, fabrication, and technology. Progression in certification for each test method requires weeks of classroom training and up to hundreds of hours of on-the-job training
