SNT-TC-1A qualfication for TOFD and Phased Array Operator in ASME VII Div. 2 Ed. 2015

Level II and Level III Operator shall be qualified by examination according to ASNT-TC-1A to perform/evaluating TOFD and/or Phased Array on ASME VIII Div. 2 Ed. 2015 Pressure Vessel?

ASME VIII Div. 2 par 7.3 (b) Ed. 2015 required for NDE personnel qualification by examination, but the Table 1.1 list for ASNT-SNT-TC-1A ed. 2006 and no request for TOFD and Phased Array is addressed.

So...?
Shall we perform training course and examination?

OK.
My question is.
ASME VIII Div. 2 Ed. 2015 required TOFD and Phased Array operator be qualified with a specific course and examination or manual UT Qualification is enough?

If you really take a close look at the issue, Sec VIII mandates you to have your NDT personnel trained with basic qualification vide provisions of SNT-TC-1A. Once you have it, further training in TOFD and/or Phased Array as an additional technique of UT will be necessary.

You can find in ASME SEC V Art 1 Mandatory Apendix II Ed 2015 the requeriments for the qualification to NDE personnel UT PA and TOFD.

Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
