Re: advice for entering NDT sector?
John, since you are an A/C mechannic before, you can try considering NDT field in Aviation Industries. Depending on the location that you might be employed, ASNT Level 2 or NAS410 certification would be a good bet. For Canada you might have your own standards of NDT certification procedure. PCN (UK) would be another good NDT certification institution for training in Aviation NDT certification. The methods commonly used in Aviation are Ultrasonic, Radiography, Eddy current testing (used very often) Penetrant and Magnetic particle testing. Regards Jason Lim LS
