Establishing a Certification for EMAT Ultrasonic NDE

I am a consultant working with itRobotics in the Houston, Texas area (www.itrobotics.com). itRobotics is commercializing EMATs for applications within several industrial sectors. Some potential users of these NDE inspection services have inquired about having some of their inspection technicians trained to perform an independent assessment of inspection issues for their suitability to benefit them from one or more of the cost, environmental or other advantages that may be inherent in an EMAT-based inspection. The experience of itRobotics as well as my own personal experience is that a large majority of NDT technicians or engineers possessing Level III UT certification are not equipped to perform EMAT-based test evaluations. Currently, I do the training as well as EMAT test assessment suitability for itRobotics. This could certainly be viewed by a prospective client as not being an independent test assessment and evaluation. I have been asked by itRobotics to look into establishing an independent training and certification program through some appropriate professional organization. I am posting here to solicit feedback from the ultrasonic NDE/NDT community on which body or bodies might be most appropriate as the “certification authority”.

EMAT is a technique of Ultrasonic testing. Only you use magnetostriction for sound generation then data acquisition and plotting A-scan B-scan or C-scan. You have to calibrate machine as per UT only.

So level-III in UT can provide this training provided he has good knowledge of EMAT machine.


Or he will change your procedure and nominate you as a trainer in your procedure for qualification of level-I/ level-II technicians and himself.


Then he will arrange for test as per ASNT-TC -1A . General min 40 questions, Specific 20 questions min, Practical and Reporting.


signing authority as per ASNT a Level-III UT.


If only machine operator you yourself can provide training.
