The opportunity to take online theory anywhere, anytime - at your own pace. - would that work for you?   We are currently running Blended Learning training courses in Liquid Penetrant Levels 1 & 2, Magnetic Particle Levels 1 & 2 and Ultrasonics Level 1.  These theory courses along with practical hands-on training meet the Certifying Body's (NRCan) training requirements.
 
The theory training provides monitoring of your progress through quizzes and having access to CGSB certified instructors.  The practical training provides the component needed to meet the NRCan practical hands-on hours. 
 
Upon completion of the theory, practical training and final exam, a certificate of successful completion would be issued.

CINDE is pleased to be offering this course, working In conjunction with Eclipse Scientific to provide an introductory instrument-specific course designed for ultrasonic NDT technicians and technical persons seeking to better understand PAUT with specific PA instruments. The course covers the phased array physics principles as well as hardware and software instrument operation. Students will learn how to achieve quality performance inspection through scan plan development, instrument calibration, data acquisition, analysis and report generation, and will become capable of analyzing, solving and reporting clear comprehensive findings for many PAUT applications. Successful graduates will be awarded a certificate of course completion in Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (Instrument- Specific) providing evidence of their technical and practical skills for advanced NDT work, the ability to perform quality inspections, and to gain eligible NDT hours and skills towards the successful completion of a higher certification program as an ultimate career development goal.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph Mason.  After a long courageous battle, fought with determination and humour, Ralph passed away peacefully in Burlington on November 4.  Comforted by his family - Helen, his high school sweetheart and wife of 55 years, daughters Terri and Rhonda, Rhonda's husband Chris and grandson Daniel, Cindy and husband Mark with twins Jessica and NIck.
 
An NDT'er of many years, beginning in the NDT Department at Stelco, followed by a number of local inspection companies, Ralph became a top-notch instructor at CSNDT Foundation/NDE Institute of Canada and with INTEG where his unique humour and excellent ability assisted many participants from across the country in obtaining CGSB certification in both MT and especially his favourite, Ultrasonic Inspection.  His vast experience of "hands-on" industrial inspections made his practical classes enjoyable and pertinent.
 
Ralph will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him, but for all his professional abilities, it will be his strong family values for which he will be long remembered.
