NAS-410 and SNT-TC-1A written practice

I am in the process of up dating a written practice that meets the standards of NAS-410 and the recommendations of SNT-TC-1A. as I am sure you all know NAS requires a few extra levels/Positions of personel, my question is can a person have multiple roles?

Also, if anyone has some helpful information on any common pitfalls related to this "dual certification procedure concept" I would sure appreciate it.

Re: NAS-410 and SNT-TC-1A written practice
Hi ADAM, I can Infer you work for some aerospace applications, Remember if you have a written practice, it suppose to meet the requirements from your employer (your company), therefore if you need a person to have multiple roles you may do it as long as you meet the requirements from the roles you need to met. You may have a level III that is instructor and auditor as long as he met the requirements from auditor and instructor.
For example, In our company we try to meet NAS and SNT TC 1A, However we have a QA department whose main function is to audit the paperwork. We have develop a position for some of them which is NDT auditor, They must pass a Training course same as Level II and for qualification they must pass only a level II end course or general examination and the specific examination, as they only function is to audit paperwork. Up to know it works pretty good but we still trying to find weak points that may be solved
Hope that helps!

Regards
