It seems like im bombarding the discussion board with all my questions but this is the only place i know were i can possibly get the answers im looking for from people who actually know what there talking about.

Straight to the point, i have decided on doin 3 courses. Magnetic particle, liquid penetrant and ultrasonic.

the problem is i was planning entering a job and gaining experience as required to be fully certified AFTER i had completed the course and examination.

*What i need to know is how do you actually gain the experience to be fully certified??

*How do you actually prove you have done the experience??

* Can the experience for each method of NDT i will be taking run along side each other or does it have to be 1 at a time??

there is 4 months experience needed for each of the 3 courses im taking so if i cannot gain the experience along side each other i will have to do my courses seperate as you only have 12months to complete experience after the examination.

If anyone would try and make sence of this it would be much appreciated.

Hi Adam, Good on you, you cant keep a good man down. You have shown initiative in finding your way to and poating on the forum so no need to think you are doing anything untoward by asking many questions.

1. You'll need to work in the method which you wish to be certified under the supervision of a Level II or level III. Just in the method, assisting, preparation, cleaning up not actually component testing.

2. The organistion's chief executive or quality manager should attest your involvement in a duly signed officlal letter, stating what, for how long, which methods to what standard and under whose supervision.

Good luck

3. There are rules concerning reduced experience time for experience gained simultaneously in seveeral methods which are contained in the PCN/GEN document. i cannot remember the figures. Obtain a copy from bindt/pcn.

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
