Master the Core NDT Techniques with our Tailored and Comprehensive Training Solutions

Discover our Courses

SANDE offers a robust selection of training courses that encompass the six principal methods and techniques of Non Destructive Testing (NDT). Our curriculum is designed to provide a thorough understanding and practical application of each method, ensuring that our students are well-equipped to meet industry standards. To accommodate diverse learning needs and logistical requirements, we provide both in-house and on-site training options. These training sessions can be customised based on the specific NDT method, the chosen venue, and the number of participants, ensuring a tailored and effective learning experience for all. 

Our commitment to flexibility and quality in training delivery means that we can support a wide range of candidates, from those just beginning their NDT careers to seasoned professionals seeking advanced certification. By offering adaptable training solutions, SANDE ensures that each participant receives the most relevant and practical instruction, empowering them to excel in their respective fields.

Magnetic Particle Testing

This technique introduces magnetic fields into a ferromagnetic material. Surface or sub-surface flaws generate magnetic flux leakage fields, which can be detected using ferromagnetic particles attracted to the leakage site.

Liquid Penetrant Testing

Liquid Penetrant Testing is effective for detecting surface-breaking flaws. After preparing the surface, a  liquid is applied and then removed, followed by a developer that draws the trapped penetrant back to the surface.

Visual Inspection

Visual inspection is a fundamental NDT and quality control method, used for inspecting raw materials, maintaining facilities, and assessing in-service equipment. This method may employ both non-specialized and specialized equipment.

Radiographic Examination

X-rays or gamma rays pass through the material under inspection. The energy that penetrates the material is captured on a receptor, such as x-ray film or a viewing screen. The processed film displays a shadow image for evaluation.

Limited Radiographic Inspection (Int.)

Skilled radiographers must produce high-quality radiographs and be adept at interpreting them. Radiographic interpretation involves three basic steps: detection, interpretation, and evaluation.

Radiation Safety & Exam

This course covers the principles and physics of radiographic methods. It also addresses the basic requirements for protecting individuals from radiation exposure and ensuring the safety of radiation sources, such as X-ray and Gamma-ray equipment.

Limited Radiographic Inspection Int

Ultrasonic Examination

This method uses mechanical sound energy pulses that pass into the material. Flaws reflect the energy back as echoes, which are then captured and displayed as electronic images on a monitor.

Limited Ultrasonic (thickness) Inspection

Ultrasonic thickness gauging is used for non-destructive measurement of the local thickness of solid elements, typically metals.

Eddy Current Testing

Eddy Current Testing

A comprehensive introduction to the principles of AC and DC circuits, magnetism, and electromagnetic induction, including Faraday’s and Oersted’s Laws.
