Online training recommendations, are they any good?

I'm new to NDT procedures and will be utilizing them to evaluate highways and bridges (SMT). I need to figure out where I can obtain training as affordably as possible for magnetic particle, dye penetrant, radiographic interpretation, ultrasonic, and visual methods. Do any online schools offer quality training in order to get level 1 or level 2 certification in this field?

I can't imagine having confidence in a course that didn't involve see the trainee do hands on examination on samples of real pieces of steel.

The most important thing with any form of training is to know if the training you are taking is approved by a certifying body. Regardeless of who provide the training and what type or format it is, it will be worthless of you can use it for your certification.

Do your due diligence.
