Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) Testing - Level II

The NDT Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) Testing Level II training course will provide theory lectures and practical training to provide the candidate with a preliminary understanding of Magnetic Particle Testing.

The course will encourage group discussions around practical problems and provide field expertise on how to resolve them. At the end of this course, the candidate will understand how to perform inspection of samples for Magnetic Particle Test. The course will cover :-

• Basic principles on Magnetic Particle testing.
• Inspection and measurement of samples.
• Familiar with the scope and limitation of the method
• Introduction to ASTM and ASME standards and specifications.

At the end of the course, candidate will be appearing for a Level II exam. Each candidate will be a certified NDT MT Level II upon successfully clearing the examination.
