Increased Demand for NDT Training: SGS Offers PCN and SNT Training Courses in 2011
The SGS NDT Training and Examination Center in Shanghai, China, which offers a wide range of internationally recognized training and certification services in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), has just released the PCN and SNT Training Course Schedule for 2011. The training and examinations offered by SGS are in accordance with European, International and American standards like EN 473, ISO 9712 and ASNT.
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is one of the most effective testing methods that can be used on an object, material or system without causing its damage or reducing its longevity. As Non-Destructive Testing does not alter the object under inspection, NDT is a highly valuable technique that can save both money and time during the quality and safety evaluation process. To ensure reliable production and operating processes, qualified Non-Destructive Testing inspections have to be carried out. Thus equipping NDT personnel with the knowledge and skills required by the industry is essential for the performance of professional NDT inspections.
In light of the increased demand for good, qualified Non-Destructive Testing inspectors, SGS NDT Training and Examination Center in Shanghai, China regularly offers internationally recognized Training and Certification Services in Non-Destructive Testing. The training and examinations are in accordance with European, International and American standards like EN 473, ISO 9712 and ASNT, with a particular focus on the extensive training syllabus for all basic Non-Destructive Testing methods. In addition, SGS offers Personnel Certification (PCN), issued by the British Institute of NDT.
As training services are a key part of SGS’s strategy to improve quality and safety around the world, SGS has developed an extensive program of PCN and SNT training courses for 2011 for Levels 1, 2 and 3:
- Radiographic Inspection and Interpretation
