Level II course is the second step for those who have previously passed our Level I General Examination. This fast-paced program is also popular with graduate engineers and scientists who want to study AE
as an NDE
method for structural testing. As well as stressing the scientific basics, this course addresses test procedures and the major topics of data interpretation and evaluation.
The format of this course is based on many years of work by members of ASNT's AE Personnel Qualification Committee (AE/PQ). Classroom instructions are given in the following topics:
- Principles of Acoustic Emission Testing
- Detection of Acoustic Emission
- Instrumentation and Signal Processing
- Acoustic Emission Test Procedures
- Applications of Acoustic Emission Testing
- Hands-on training is included and the examination follows the classroom instruction.
A General (written) Examination is offered to all candidates who complete the designated 40 hours of classroom instruction. Documentation of course completion and examination results are provided.
Success in this General Examination is an important qualification towards AE
Level II certification. Certification per SNT-TC-1A is done by the employer who has a Written Practice developed for this purpose. Level II certification normally requires documented on-the-job experience as well as adequate training hours and general, specific and practical examinations.
Prices include course notebook, classroom and hands-on training, lunches, administration of examination and documentation of results.
