Caro Josè
my opinion is that your question is a nonsense.
1. the amount of salary depend from many factors, capacity, personal availability, ambient,competition avaiability,need of the employer etc
2. if you simply want to know how is the wage of a technichal worker with two yaers experience, then you must consulting an Union forum
ciao,Ezio

No... the question isnt nonsense.... but its being asked incorrectly and for the wrong reasons.

He wants to know how muchpeople make in the NDT industry who are ticketed to MT & PT level 2 qualification. To be very honest..... it is different everywhere.

We here in canada make considerably more (per hour ) than technicians in other countries. However our training and certification processes are far more in depth and far more difficult to achieve (second only to Great Britain and Japan).
Additionally, you must understand that even in the same job market 2 NDT techs may earn drastically different salaries. It is entirely dependant on the number of hours you work... your hourly wage... union or non-union.... years experience.... and a great many other factors as well. Certain jobs in the the same job market pay more than others.... certain companies pay more than others.... certain companies pay less. What you should do before you begin your "research" is determine what it is that you want to get out of the NDT industry.

If its simply a paycheck... I can guarantee you wont last long. I have seen hundreds of peope flock to our industry over the years looking for fast cash. When times get lean they run away just as fast.

Remember ........ it isn't an easy job.... it isnt cheap to get trained... lifestyle sacrifices are many... and though few will admit it this industry is very much based on reputation. As an NDT technician you are really only as good as your last inspection. Make a mistake and see how fast you're career comes to a screeching halt.
