Bookings are now being taken for the first release in TWI’s suite of new blended learning courses, covering phased array ultrasonic testing.

Combining a week of eLearning with two weeks of classroom-based tuition, the new course offers a more flexible, accessible and personalised way of achieving this advanced ultrasonic Level 2 qualification. You can study theory and concepts when and where you choose, spend less time in the classroom, and save costs related to travel and accommodation.

To celebrate the launch of TWI's Virtual Academy, TWI is including two weeks’ free access to the phased array online study material for anyone who enrols before the end of January 2016. This additional two weeks’ access can be used at any time within 12 months of completing the course, so if you need to refresh your knowledge, you can do so at no extra cost.

Phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) is now a widely accepted and frequently mandated method of weld inspection, which can either enhance existing ultrasonic capability or, for certain applications, be used in lieu of radiography.

Phased array is a complex methodology, with no shortcut solution to ensuring its competent use. Upskilling from a conventional ultrasonic operator to a fully certified PAUT technician in accordance with BS EN ISO 9712, and approved certification scheme, requires over 100 hours of training and extensive experience.

TWI’s new blended learning package makes achieving this certification more accessible than ever before, allowing you to cover the theory at a time and place that suits you before attending classes for the practical element of the course.

Additional NDT blended learning programmes will be launched in the near future, so keep an eye out for coming opportunities.
