This program will provide you with the education, training and practical experience necessary to begin a career in non-destructive evaluation/testing (NDT).
You will learn how to examine cars, trains, airplanes, spacecraft, towers, bridges, ships, power plants and amusement park rides without causing damage or impairment to their future use, hence the term non-destructive. The purpose of testing in this fashion is to detect possible internal or external defects and examine the properties of an object.
This program is highly regulated by the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) and provides eligibility to write certification exams upon graduation. A minimum 70 per cent is required in Introduction to Non-Destructive Testing, Mathematics for Technology II and Ultrasonic Testing I in order to obtain a course credit. Other Non-Destructive Testing courses will require a 70 per cent grade to be eligible for a certificate.
As a graduate, you will also be eligible for membership in the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists.
Please note: Candidates should not have a fear of confined spaces or heights. Subsequent to certification, tests of visual acuity will be carried out. Some organizations also require a police check prior to employment.
