Eddy Current Level 1

PREREQUISITE: Registrants must satisfy all prerequisites that pertain to this training course.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES: This course provides a basic knowledge of eddy current testing fundamentals sufficient to enable the technician to carry out eddy current testing to established procedures under the supervision of Level 2 or Level 3 personnel.

APPLICABLE STANDARDS: This course meets the training syllabus requirements of CAN/CGSB-48.9712, ISO 9712 and SNT-TC-1A.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF LEVEL 1 PERSONNEL (AS PER CGSB): Level 1 personnel are defined as personnel who will carry out industrial eddy current non-destructive inspection under the supervision of Level 2 or Level 3 personnel and will not be responsible for the eddy current test method or technique to be used, nor for the assessment of test results.
