Liquid Penetrant Inspection
Based on the syllabi issued by the American Society
for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT) and the General and Aerospace
requirements of PCN, the course provides a basic foundation for
technicians, inspectors, and engineers called upon to witness, supervise,
or conduct Liquid Penetrant Inspection procedures.
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 can lead to both Level I and Level II PCN,
SNT-TC-1A, BS EN 4179 or NAS-410 Accreditation.
Standards, such as BS EN 571, BS.M39, and ASTM
E1417 are introduced on this course. These can be complimented by
specific OEM procedural requirements if requested.
Practical aspects are emphasised by ensuring that
all theoretical training is complemented with the opportunity to
apply a variety of techniques and methods under the guidance of
qualified instructors, including exposure to a fully operational
pre-cleaning and penetrant system, which is Nadcap, UKAS and CAA
The aim of the course is to ensure that candidates
obtain a complete theoretical and practical understanding of all
types of penetrant processing.
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
