Eddy Current Testing
Based on the syllabi issued by the American Society
for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT) and the Aerospace requirements
of PCN, the course provides a thorough foundation for technicians,
inspectors, and engineers called upon to witness, supervise or conduct
Eddy Current Tests.
The course satisfies the formal training element
of the Recommended Practice SNT-TC-1A issued by ASNT, and the requirements
of PCN/GEN, and hence is the basic foundation which can lead to
qualification under PCN, SNT-TC-1A, BS EN 4179 or NAS-410
Practical aspects are emphasised by ensuring that
theoretical training is complemented with practical sessions concerning
techniques and methods under the guidance of qualified instructors.
At level 1, practical exercises are limited to the use of Analog
Students are introduced to the variety of practical
applications associated with Eddy Current Testing, paving the way
for further training in Specific Techniques and Industry sectors.
Students are assessed for comprehension and progress
during the course, via a structured series of both theoretical and
practical phase assessments, which facilitate counselling and assistance
where required. On request a formal end of course examination can
