Radiographic Inspection

Based on the syllabi issued by the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT) and the Weld and Aerospace requirements of PCN, the course provides a thorough foundation for technicians, inspectors, and engineers called upon to witness, supervise or conduct Radiographic Inspection.

The course satisfies the formal training element of the Recommended Practice SNT-TC-1A issued by ASNT, and the requirements of PCN/GEN/, and hence is the basic foundation which can lead to qualification under PCN, SNT-TC-1A, BS EN 4179 or NAS-410 requirements.

Practical aspects are emphasised by ensuring that theoretical training is complemented with practical sessions concerning techniques and methods under the guidance of qualified instructors. Essential elements from the Radiographic Safety and Interpretation courses are contained within this syllabus.

Students are introduced to the variety of practical applications associated with radiographic inspection, paving the way for further training in Specific Techniques and Industry sectors.

The aim of the course is to ensure that in addition to Level I, candidates obtain a complete theoretical and practical understanding of process control checks, radiographic interpretation and Instruction and report writing.

Students are assessed for comprehension and progress during the course, via a structured series of both theoretical and practical phase assessments, which facilitate counselling and assistance where required. On request a formal end of course examination can be conducted.

The content of the course includes:-

Radiographic Principles, Electromagnetic radiation sources.
X-ray and Gamma ray spectra, Penetrating ability or "quality" of X-rays and Gamma rays.
Geometric exposure principles. Industrial Radiographic film / Radiographic screens.
Arithmetic of radiographic exposure, Radiographic Image quality.
Film handling, loading and processing. Exposure techniques. Fluoroscopic techniques.
Radiation Hazards and Safety. Types of discontinuities
