Nondestructive Testing Occupational Endorsement Certificate
The occupational endorsement (OEC) in Nondestructive Testing provides foundational skills required for entry into the nondestructive testing industry
(NDT). Students examine metallic components or weldments to locate and evaluate discontinuities
by learning to apply liquid penetrant (PT), magnetic particle (MT), eddy current (ET),
radiographic (RT) and ultrasonic (UT) test methods.
Student qualification in each NDT method is based on general, specific and practical examinations administered as prescribed in the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A.
