Ultrasonic testing UT Level 2 Training Course

Ultrasonic Testing UT Level 2 Training Courses

Among the important NDT methods, Ultrasonic testing UT level 2 training course is a much demanding certification for every quality engineers. The Ultrasonic testing training course will help the quality engineers to scan and detect defects of internal in nature. UT Level 2 training contains class room and workshop hands on practical on ultrasonic testing of castings, plates, forgings and weld joints.

The objective of the Ultrasonic testing UT level 2 course is to give the trainees the best knowledge about principles of Ultrasonic testing, UT equipment, calibration of UT machines and perform ultrasonic testing independently by oneself. This requires both theory and ample practicals.

Ultrasonic testing Level 2 Course Outline

The Ultrasonic testing course outlines about principles of sound, fundamental concepts of ultrasonics, formulae, calibration blocks in UT testing, attenuation, drawing Distance amplitude correction curve (DAC) curves, using Distance Gain Size (DGS) software scales and practically performing independent UT testing of castings, forgings, plates and weld joints. The UT Level 2 course also covers extensive information on ultrasonic thickness gauging of pipe lines, tubes and plates for corrosion wall thickness measuring. The UT training course also gives insights into advantages and limitation of Ultrasonic testing and introduction to TOFT and Phased array ultrasonic testing.

UT – Short term certification course for Mechanical Engineers

Ultasonic testing UT Level 2 training course is quite helpful for mechanical graduate engineers, those who wants to pursue career in quality. At present, Ultrasonic testing is one of the fastest growing nondestructive testing method among all NDT methods. UT is extensively used for scanning castings, forgings and plates before processing. Though there are handful of short term courses for mechanical engineers, a few can make a successful career.

It is quite evident that, demand for ultrasonic testing need is ever increasing with spike in manufacturing quality products. Good number of mechanical engineering component manufacturers understood the importance of quality. The forgings and castings we make should be sound to be acceptable for the customers and thus ultrasonic testing is vital for finding internal defects.

Though numerous short terms courses are existing for mechanical engineers, ultrasonic testing UT level 2 training course can make mechanical engineers to work in his/her own field. Thereby, can choose a job in his/her related mechanical engineering field. Also, there is a good change to pursue masters in nondestructive testing for career advancement. Large number of job vacancies keep the ultrasonic testing UT level 2 engineers engaged in challenging projects.

Certification Scheme ASNT recommended Practice SNT TC 1A

There are various certification schemes today for a mechanical quality engineer to get Ultrasonic testing Level 2 training. Globally, employer based certification scheme SNT TC 1A of ASNT is most widely used today. Different training levels are Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. ASNT practice SNT TC 1A describes the requirement for employer based certifications including eligibility, training hours, training topics depth, examinations and every aspect of Ultrasonic testing Level 1 and Level 2 training. The practice also gives recommendation on annual maintenance and Ultasonic testing UT Level 2 training certification renewal details of UT level 2 certifications.

What is the eligibility for Ultrasonic testing Level 2 Course

Eligibility basis for ultrasonic testing UT level 2 training course has been clearly given in employers written practice made to the requirements of ASNT practice SNT TC 1A. Before and during course of certification training the candidate is called as ‘Trainee’. To be eligible for Ultrasonic testing Level 2 UT courses, the trainee should meet educational qualifications and experience needs.
