Ultrasonic Testing - Level II


Course Duration:     5 Days (40 Hours)                                                                                                   Course Fees:     $1150

Ultrasonic Testing - Level II, Classroom NDT training course is developed to meet the requirements of ASNT SNT-TC-1A, CP -189 and other equivalent standards and customer specific written practice for training and certification in this method of Non-Destructive Testing personnel.
After completion of Ultrasonic Testing - Level II classroom training course, you will get in-depth knowledge of Ultrasonic weld flaw sizing, weld inspection, discontinuity interpretation and evaluation as per ASME Sec V article 4, AWS D1.1 and application of Ultrasonic Shear Wave techniques to test welding of pipe, plate, and other various product forms.

Training Examination & Certification Requirement:
During this Ultrasonic Testing  Level II classes, you will give examination in General theory, Specification, and Practical. You are required to successfully pass these three examinations with minimum of 70% grading in each examination 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 630 Hours on-job training (OJT) after completion of training classes for certification in this method.
Pre-Requisite: Person attending direct Level II, need to have 40 Hours of Level I classroom hours in this method.  

Basic Principle of Ultrasonic Testing
In the ultrasonic testing method, high-frequency sound waves transmitted into a material to detect the imperfections or to locate changes in material properties. The most commonly used ultrasonic testing technique is pulse echo, wherein a sound is introduced into a test object and reflections (echoes) are returned to a receiver from internal imperfections or from the part's geometrical surfaces.
