Could anybody tell me what requirements / certifications a company must have to provide Shearography ( or in principal NDT )training to worldwide Aerospace customers. What is the process to get these certifications? Who should we contact? Thanks in advance

Re: Shearography Training Still this is a good point. NAS410 / EN4179 are part of the frame work, which should be used as a reference. Ask the Colleagues from AIRBUS D, as they have been heavily involved in setting up the standards - you should know the entry point to the NDT-Group in Bremen (I aviod putting e-mail addresses here, as this might be another source for more spam) Further on - as far as I know - the only company until now doing training for shearography in aeronatics, which is licensed in Europe (which means it is a certified aerospace training site) - is NDT Expert in Toulouse/France. We at AIRBUS Bremen still are in preparation of a training course, which shall be a little more practical and more universal then the NDTexpert one. Also thinking to combine Interferometry with thermooptical testing as a lot of fields are similar like loading, imaging, image processing etc.
