The South West School of NDT is an “Authorised Qualifying Body” for central certification examinations under the PCN scheme, administered by the British Institute of NDT. This is in satisfaction of EN 473 and ISO 9712. Additionally, the school routinely hosts examinations in satisfaction of employer-based schemes such as SNT-TC-IA, NAS 410 and EN4179.

Whilst central certification examinations are held at the school’s examination centre in Cardiff, NDT level 3 examination staff travel to national and international venues to administer employer-based examinations on behalf of a variety of clients.

Working in close collaboration with IMechE Engineering Training Solutions (formerly Argyll-Ruane Ltd), the school can offer examinations in all major NDT disciplines and Industry sectors. It also specialised in arranging examinations in allied disciplines in such areas as Mechanical Testing, Heat Treatment, Acid Etch Inspection, Hardness and Conductivity, Anodic Flaw Detection, Composite Materials Inspection and Bond Testing. These are normally conducted under a structure similar to that for the mainstream methods and can be expended to include almost any technical discipline.
