Radiographic Testing - Level  I


Course Duration:     5 Days (40 Hours)                                                                                                   Course Fees:     $1195
Radiographic Testing - Level I, 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 this Radiographic Testing class, you will get in-depth knowledge of Basic Radiation Physics, Radiographic Techniques, Radiographic Film and Processing, Quality of Radiographs, equipment, and application of Radiographic techniques to test various product forms for volumetric discontinues.
Training Examination & Certification Requirement:
During this Radiographic Testing training class, you will give an examination in General theory, Specification, and Practical. You are required to successfully pass these three examinations with a minimum of 70% grading in each study and 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 210 Hours of on-job training (OJT) after completion of training classes for certification in this method.
Basic Principle of Radiographic Testing
Radiography involves using penetrating, X-ray, or gamma radiation to examine parts and products for imperfections. An X-ray generator or radioactive isotope is used as a source of radiation. Radiation is passed through a specimen onto film or other imaging media. The resulting shadow image shows the dimensional features of the part. Possible imperfections are indicated as density changes on the film in the same manner as medical X-ray shows broken bones.
