Lack of ASNT ET Level II Certification

Can anyone guess why ASNT does not certify for ET Level 2?
All other basic methods (VT, PT, MT, UT and RT) are mentioned.

ACCP Level II Certification Link: http://www.asnt.org/certification/levelii/index.htm

I intend to ask ASNT the reason as well but would like the forums opinion.

Thank you.

Re: Lack of ASNT ET Level II Certification
Hi,
I hope ASNT is working on that and in near future it may be included.

In eddy current testing every test condition is unique due to large number of variables and it is difficult to decide on test samples (for practical examination).

There are certain classifications to be made and suitable test samples to be prepared. Recommendations on these are usually done by a committee set-up for specific purpose. The committee has to interact with Industry, Manufactures, Users and experts. This is a long time process that is why it is not included now.

  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
