Airborne Ultrasound is a nondestructive test. The effectiveness of airborne ultrasonic tests depends upon the capabilities of the personnel who are responsible for, and perform inspections. Certification is a written documentation of qualification. Certification is evidence that personnel performing airborne ultrasound possess knowledge and understanding of the test method and also gives the inspector the confidence needed to perform the inspection to the highest level of success. In order to meet the requirements of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) Recommended Practice, SNT-TC-1A, specific topics must be addressed in the classroom training. The suggested hours of instruction are 32 hours for Level I.

Level I Training

UE Systems Course Description: Level I

Conforming to the classroom requirement of ASNT Recommended Practice, SNT-TC-1A, the course offers 32 hours of instruction with a written examination. This is a comprehensive classroom course in which the theory, principles and practices of Airborne Ultrasound Technology are taught. Also, the training material is in accordance to ISO 18436-8, standard for condition monitoring and diagnosis of machines. Instructors for this course have been selected for their outstanding comprehension, experience and technical expertise in the field of Airborne / Structure Borne Ultrasound. The course is designed by a committee of experts, some of whom were responsible for pioneering and developing the technology.
