iSuccessAcademy – Level II NDT Auditor Program 

 

Auditors, Third Party Inspectors, Quality Control Managers, Quality Assurance Managers and Quality management personnel in general are asked to observe, verify and evaluate the performance and test findings of non-destructive testing technicians on a regular basis. 

This is an extremely important area of verification in many industries. The safety and well-being of workers and the general public are reliant on the accurate verification of these job tasks. But, up to now, Auditors, Third Party Inspectors and Quality Control - Quality Assurance personnel have been somewhat "in the dark" about the correct application of the various NDT Methods used on most job sites. 

Unfortunately, in some cases, NDT Technicians have been trained incorrectly or over time have slipped into bad habits that will hinder their ability to conduct NDT tests accurately and completely. In worst case scenarios, the NDT technician might be cutting corners or "trying to pull the wool over the eyes" of the auditors, third party verifiers or management personnel. In either case, the potential for injury or death rise dramatically for the end users of the products that were incorrectly inspected. 

Questions to Consider: 

1) Have the NDT Personnel been qualified and certified properly? 

2) Are the NDT Technicians actually applying the various methods correctly? How can I know? 

3) As an Auditor, Third Party Inspector or Quality Control/Quality Assurance Professional, am I sure that I fully understand the correct application of each method of non-destructive testing? 

In reality, we have encountered many third party verifiers and Quality Control/Quality Assurance personnel who have been watching NDT tests being conducted incorrectly for several years. Their signatures are on verification reports. It's not their fault. They were simply trained incorrectly or have been operating at the mercy of technicians who are trained incorrectly or trying to "get away" with shortcuts. 

How Can I Solve This Problem? 

We are now offering the iSuccessAcademyLevel II NDT Auditor Certificate Program to help you gain the knowledge that you need to ensure that NDT Tests are being conducted correctly. 

In these courses, you will learn: 

Responsibilities of an Inspector 

Inspection Ethics 

Certification Requirements for Each NDT Method 

Auditing Certification Records 

Reading and Interpretation of Standards and Procedures 

Reporting Best Practices and Requirements 

The Correct and Incorrect Application of PT - Liquid Penetrant Testing 

The Correct and Incorrect Application of MT - Magnetic Particle Testing 

The Correct and Incorrect Application of VT - Visual Inspection 

The Correct and Incorrect Application of UT - Ultrasonic Testing (for Wall Thickness, Straight Beam and Shear Wave Applications) 

Hands-On exercises are demonstrated by our instructors and students are allowed to conduct tests on their own to learn the methods as applicable. 

Students are tested by observing tests for each method according to appropriate procedures and must be able to verify the correct or incorrect application of the methods by generating an audit report for each. 

Students must score 80% or better on the Final Exam in order to earn the iSuccessAcademyLevel II NDT Auditor Certificate in each method. 

Level II Certificate 

The iSuccessAcademy Level II NDT Auditor Method Certificate and Level II NDT Auditor - Basic Methods credential is issued on the basis of passing the Final Exam for the course. iSuccessAcademy, LLC administers these certificates as a third-party organization and can offer verification of training and skills to employers, clients, etc. This certificate program is in alignment with ANSI/ASTM Standards.
