Code: PT L1 (for Level 1), PT L2 (for Level 2), PT L3 (for Level 3)


Magnetic particle testing is suitable for surface and sub-surface defect detection in ferromagnetic materials. The surface can be covered with thin layer of dielectric coating. It can be applied even on site or for serial testing.


Based on: recommended practice SNT-TC-1A. Alternatively, we can provide this training course based on EN 473/ISO 9712 or on EN 4179/NAS 410 as well.


Used codes: The scope of standards covered by the training is specified according to clients’needs. Basic standards covered by the training are usually: US standards (e.g.: ASTM E 165, ASTM E 433, ASTM E 1417, AMS 2644, ASME Code V/6) and set of EN and ISO standards (e.g.: EN 571-1; EN ISO 23277; EN ISO 3452 etc.)


What you will learn


Training is focused on explaining how to recognize important factors that affect the testing results and help NDT operator to understand how set-up process parameters to optimize the test results.


The level 1 training covers theory overview in direct connection to requirements of the relevant standards. This gained knowledge will prepare operator for accurate test performance. Training for Level 2 operators covers additionally detailed overview of relevant evaluation standards. Classroom training is accompanied by evaluation of study cases, and by practical tasks with testing and evaluation of samples.
