“4. Prerequisites: Math Skills; Materials & Processes Knowledge; and for RT-only, Radiation Safety
a. Math Skills Pre-Screening – to be administered by RTO (attestation not required for certification application)
Recognized Training Organizations will be responsible to properly pre-screen or administer a math-skill examination for their students in all NDT Methods. The NRCan NDTCB will assist the RTOs by providing a template math examination that can be used by the RTO. The NRCan NDTCB will request the RTOs to individually provide and document their pre-screening criteria to comply with this element. This pre-requisite is for training only.”
Essentially, instead of the math being a requirement for UT, RT and ET only, it is now a requirement for all methods.
In addition to the change regarding the math pre-requisite, the other major changes are as follows:
• Replacement of references of “Accepted Training Organizations” with “Recognized Training Organizations” in order to conform with the transition to NRCan NDTCB Recognized Training Organization (RTO) program updates.

• Addition to rule for the recertification transition period, which states: “Successful completion of recertification examinations during this transition period will be applied at the end of the 5 year period of validity for which the certificate was conditionally renewed. Following the satisfactory completion of the renewal process the individual will have valid certification for a period of 5 years.”

  • For example, if a candidate within the transition period completes their recertification examination for an NDT method in June of 2019, and their next renewal date (recertification deadline) is October 15th, 2021, their recertification for that method will become effective on October 15th, 2021. Providing that they renew by October 15th, 2021, they will have valid certification for a period of 5 years.
