Hey Nagesh, try to write to Lavender in UK.

What they told me is that to be elegible to qualify/certify as level 3 im PA or TOFD for instance, you had to be a level 2 in UT, dont remember if ASNT ir accepted, but if so I am getting mine to do some PCN level certification as well.

Hi Nagesh,

If you go to the this link , download the PSL/49 (PCN examination exemptions for holders of current valid certificates issued by other certification bodies) and forward this to PCN, your application will be reviewed and exemptions granted accordingly.

Hi Nagesh,
I am ASNT LEVEL 3 in RT and UT and also CSWIP certified phased array(pipe wizard) data interpreter level 2 from TWI. I did my exam in Middles borough in 1996 and am currently working as TOTAL AUT specialist in Angola. This AUT of pipeline girth weld interpretation scans come with TOFD as a standard reference along with PA/PULSE ECHO signals both in PA and multi probes system. I have done more than 8 pipelay projects around the world since 2003 and I tried to get PCN level 2 in TOFD and PA. (Also I have ASNT level 2 in PA from Olympus through Blue star in India for Omniscan).
BINDT rejected my application for exemption due to the the reason that I couldn't produce sufficient evidence of my Level II experience in UT....I had my ASNT level 2 in UT since 1995 and did not renew it once I got level 3 in 2003.I will try one more time with my UT ASNT level 2 certification ,to get endorsed from the institute from where I got trained and certified.
If it is not possible, I will do PCN level 2 in UT in India and will appear for PCN level 2 in PA and TOFD, probably in TWI Malaysia.
All this I explain to infer that ASNT level 3 is not considered by many other certification bodies....
I think you should have PCN level 2 to become a PCN level 3.
