ACOUSTIC EMISSION TESTING FOR SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS

Duration: 3 Days
Cost: $1320

This is the starter course on the AE educational track that we are now offering to scientists and engineers, complementing the personnel qualification track that we offer to NDT inspectors and field technicians.

This course is for you if you have little (or no) experience in AE but need to:
  • Perform AE testing in your own organization
  • Implement AE Programs
  • Evaluate the potential of AE to solve specific problems
  • Oversee and evaluate the efforts of those who supply AE services to your organization
This course will help you evaluate whether your organization should be using AE and if so, how. It will help you to become an AE user either in do-it-yourself mode or as a user of commercial services. It fits with our software training courses, and leads towards the AE High Tech Course which offers more in-depth understanding and advanced techniques for experienced users.
