John,
As for courses for UT, MT and PT first you have to decide which qualification you want to take. So if you are happy to stay with your current employer which is best for him PCN or ASNT, you also have many places to take the exam. As I have stated before on the forum I prefer to go to Lavender International in Penniston Sheffield. Phone no. 01226 765769 or email nicola@lavender-ndt.com for more information. They have good tutors, and try there best to make you comfortable. Hope this helps best of luck.

John,
Forgot to add that first you will only be able to qualify as level 1 as you have to gain experience first then take your level 2 after you have gained the required number of hours experience. But as you say your current employer could help there, and so you would be able to gain the experience needed to take your level 2. Hope it helps.

Regards,

Phil
