I am currently in NDI and am seeking certification in ACFM.
Does anyone have any input on the best place to obtain this?
Thanks!

Training courses leading to operator certification are available from the UK Welding Institute (TWI). These are routinely run in Middlesbrough, UK, but can also be run overseas if there is sufficient demand.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • 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
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
