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

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.
