PART-TIME | WINNIPEG LOCATIONS NONDP-NA Non Destructive Testing

An error has occurred

Overview

Nondestructive testing (NDT) is the process of inspecting, testing, or evaluating materials, components or assemblies for discontinuities, or differences in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the part or system. Because NDT does not permanently alter the article being inspected, it is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time in product evaluation, troubleshooting, and research.




Admission Requirements

Entrance Requirements
For students who desire to achieve CGSB certification, the following prerequisites are required. A candidate without these prerequisites may not have his/her training recognized by the NDT certifying agency”.

Please note: The entrance requirements for Non-Destructive Testing have changed as of March 31st, 2015 
A summary of the NDT Certifying Agency prerequisites follows. For complete information about overall prerequisites as well as certification requirements please contact the NDT Certifying Agency of NRCan: http://ndt.nrcan.gc.ca.
