Non Destructive Testing

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Training from the CORE Training Centre – comprehensive NDT training, examinations and certification for your personnel in accordance with International, American and European Standards

Anyone conducting NDT requires accredited training and certification. The innovative CORE NDT Training Centre in India provides state-of-the art training, examinations and certification in accordance with European, international and American standards such as EN ISO 9712 and ASNT.

Dive into Non-destructive testing with our hands-on, experience-driven training program. Enjoy direct instructor coaching and active industry knowledge from India’s highest level training facility.

Non Destructive Testing (NDT) is a specialized branch of engineering science which use of non-invasive techniques to determine the integrity of a material, component or structure without impairing its usefulness and is an integral part of Quality Assurance and Quality Control. It confirms quality of materials such as structural beams, pipes, plates, valves, nozzles etc. used in construction of industrial equipment’s. It also confirms quality of fabrication and joining process where testing of welds is of major importance. General procedure for NDT has given in ASME Section V and engineers have to follow these procedures for each NDT methods. Hence NDT training and certification is a must for QA/QC Engineers. We conduct NDT certification as per the requirements of ASNT - SNT TC 1A 2020 and other standards.

Any course can be offered at any CORE’s office or on site at the customer’s location.

Who Should Attend?

This course will benefit NDT personnel, maintenance personnel, Quality Assurance / Quality Control Inspectors, engineers, surveyors, technicians, trainees in the aerospace, metal fabrication, oil refinery, petrochemical, offshore, shipbuilding, ship-repairing and building construction industries.

What is Eddy Current Testing?
Eddy current testing uses the electromagnetism principle for flaw detection in conductive materials. A specially designed coil energised with an alternating-current is placed in proximity to the test surface, generating a changing magnetic field that interacts with the test-part and produces eddy currents in the vicinity. Variations in the changing phases and magnitude of these eddy currents are then monitored through the use of a receiver-coil or by measuring changes to the alternate current flowing in the primary excitation-coil. The electrical conductivity variations, the magnetic permeability of the test-part, or the presence of any discontinuities, will cause a change in the eddy current and a corresponding change in phases and amplitude of the measured current. The changes are shown on a screen and are interpreted to identify defects. This Eddy current inspection method is suitable for the larger surfaces than smaller surfaces as it damages the surface areas like cracks, subsurface cracks, pits, corrosions, inner surfaces, and other minor damaged areas. It sustains with large durability for complex surfaces shapes and different sizes. The Eddy Current tool is widely used in various important sectors such as:
  • Aircraft
  • Military
  • Petrochemical
  • Aerospace and
  • Other commercial Industries
An example of the syllabus that is used for Eddy Current Testing Training courses is shown below for Level 1 and 2. CORE can tailor make the syllabus to satisfy the requirements of an individual’s company specific written practice if requested. Our trainers include the best curriculum with the latest teaching techniques followed by international standards. We provide practical sessions for the required topics along with the theoretical classes. Here is the list of the significant topics covered during the course.
  • Electromagnetic theory
  • Test instrumentation and coil design
  • Basic impedance plane principles
  • Conductivity
  • Dimensional factors (lift-off and material thickness)
  • Permeability
  • Frequency, signal-to-noise ratio, and flaw detection applications
  • Weld inspection on ferrous and non-ferrous materials
This course acts as the best foundation to the inspectors, engineers and technicians for conducting or supervising or inspecting the Eddy current tests.

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) Level 2

Phased Array is an advanced pulse-echo technique that utilizes multiple miniaturized transducers and time-delays to shape the ultrasonic sound beam to a desired angle and focus. The versatility of the system permits simultaneous views of different presentations, such as sectorial views as well as A Scan, B-Scan C-Scan representations In comparison with manual pulse-echo techniques, the advantages of Phased Array testing are its excellent repeatability, increased inspection speed, more accurate results and the ability to inspect complex geometries and to visualize indications in welds and/or base materials using B, C, D and S scans (with all A-scans included). Moreover, Phased Array allows the digital storage of all data, location and system settings, and is very much safer to operate within a working environment, compared with Non-Destructive Testing methods that use X-rays and gamma-rays for detecting imperfection. This course follows the ASNT – Level II Phased Array syllabus and is designed to take the experienced NDT technician though the fundamentals of Phased Arrays, including Principles, Digitization and History of Phases Arrays, supported by a series of lab applications that will have the end user proficient with the Phased Array process, encoding scans, compiling groups and basic interpretation. We can provide Phased Array Training courses and examinations suitable for the following certification scheme.
  • SNT-TC-1A in accordance with your/our company written practice An example of the syllabus that is used for Phased Array training courses is shown below for Level 2. CORE can tailor make the syllabus to satisfy the requirements of an individual’s company specific written practice if requested.
    • Principles of Inspection Sensitivity
    • Phased Array Instrument
    • Scanning with Phased Array Probes
    • Calibration and Checks
    • Software and Data collection Analysis
    • Data Acquistion and Interpretation
Key Benefits:
  • The technician should leave the course with a sound understanding of Phased Arrays
  • The technician will be able to carry out basic operations functions, including calibration, detection and Identification of indications
  • The technician, with dedicated application will be able to apply code compliant examinations to welded components
About Qualification: For SNT-TC-1A: According to Written Practice. Course Duration: 12-15 Days Based on Certification Type Selected or in accordance to Clients Written Practice.
