If you are a domestic or internationally educated professional with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree, you may be eligible for a compressed, fast-track opportunity to complete your diploma requirements in two semesters.
This program will provide you with the training and hands-on experience necessary to begin a career in non-destructive evaluation/testing (NDE/NDT). In combination with your degree those skills will allow for you to assess the data collection from the inspections and provide reports to senior management.
NDT inspectors engage in the examination and testing of cars, trains, airplanes, space craft towers, bridges, ships, power plants, amusement park rides etc. You will learn how to examine these objects without causing damage or impairment to their future use, hence the term non-destructive. You will also learn how testing in this fashion is used to detect possible internal or external defects and examine the properties of the object.
At the end of the program, you will be eligible to take method-specific certification exams regulated by the Canadian General Standards Board if you have 70 per cent or better in the related NDT courses.
