NDT Classes

Nondestructive testing uses sophisticated technology to examine an object or material in a manner that does not compromise its future usefulness. Nondestructive testers and quality control technicians are the scientists and detectives of the manufacturing world. Through sophisticated diagnostic testing, they solve mysteries and are challenged to do so in a non-invasive manner.

Our nondestructive testing courses are designed to help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to perform specialized testing techniques that are required in industries including automotive, construction, flight, and manufacturing.
