Why are you considering takeing a course with subsequent examination in a subject you haven't even heard of?
After having gained your levels in a particular area of work you will be expected to go into factories and onto construction sites and independantly perform examinations where you make judgements on quality.
It seems from your posting that you don't know that ndt is a term that encompasses different examination methods which have their own qualifications and examiners will be qualified in one or more method.
Please Mr Joel, go and find out what the work is before you consider spending money on gaining qualifications. As part of your certification you have to work 'on the tools' and this is preferably and desirably done before you attempt qualification.

Dear Ashish You are completing your Electrical engineering. It is itself an excellent field.You should go for Masters in electrical engineering than opting to enter a field you even have not heard off. There are lots of openings in electrical engineering in the jobs as well which includes power production sector, power distribution, maintenance of equipment, sales of equipment and many others. This decision at this stage is a career turning point so be very careful. Best of the luck

Dear Ashish,

NDT is an awesome field. But now a days many newcomers without the basic knowledge, getting certified by some dummy institute were classes are conducted by unqualified personnel's and certificate issued in name of some Level III whom u have never met.These kind of activities should be reported to ASNT.People forget ethics to make money.

If you really want to join NDT family, Start from the field,go as a trainee for around a year.then get certified as per the rules of ASNT.With a strong background experience along with qualification,this field can take you anywhere.Every day will be a new adventure/ experience.

Anyway Best of luck.

The sophistication and complexity of NDT equipment bears no resemblance to the pre-digital days. Employment opportunities exist with the many high-end niche market NDT equpment manufacturers. NDT is a very good and growing industry sector to be involved in. As you have found your way to this excellent resource, use it! I suggest you peruse the papers and links here and get an idea of the range of equipment and applications available with the promse of much more to come. Plenty to keep an intelligent enquiring mind interested!

Ashish

I suggest that you finish your studies and enter the employment market as a graduate electrical engineer. There must be 1000's doing this work so why should it be so bad for you? If, after a few years work you still have this desire for NDT, then research the market again. If you seek work as an NDT technician now, you will have to qualify and compete with many other non-degree level people. Just consider the number of adverts for NDT training in India and the sole entry prereqisite - that you can pay the fees! Graduate, then see if you can get work at home or in the Middle-East as a degree-certifiec electrical engineer, then move your career forward from there.
