Training - Eddy Current (ET) Course

Our Eddy Current (ET) Course has been designed to give the student an understanding and working knowledge of the principles and application of Eddy Current on tubular products. The course consists of Conventional and Remote Field Practices. It will further document that the student has completed the required hours to be certified for Level I and Level II Eddy Current as stated in ASNT Recommended Practice SNT-TC-1A. The certification of an ET Technician is the responsibility of the his/her employer, but can be contracted out as long as the ASNT Level III performing the training is representing that company in Non-Destructive Training.

Eddy Current Testing is a relatively complex examination which can be performed on ferrous and non-ferrous materials. An Eddy Current probe is inserted into a reasonably clean tube and pushed through until it reaches the end. It is then drawn back along the inside diameter of the tube and the tube is examined. Both directions are sampled and it is capable of locating reduced material on both the inside surface and outside wall. A student taking this course will learn the dos and don'ts of Eddy Current Testing and how to evaluate these indications per code. Upon successfully passing of this course, a student will be issued a Certification of Completion for the documented training hours. Students who successfully pass the examination, have the required experience hours and whose company is contracted to Base Line Data, Inc. for ASNT Level III services will be issued a Level I or Level II certificate. These certifications are valid for three (3) years. Most industries require this certification for technicians performing non-destructive examinations. Having this training or certification will assist in obtaining employment in this field and will boost one's potential for higher pay. The course will consist of two (2) forty-hour weeks of training. Only daytime courses will be offered and the instructor will be a qualified ASNT Level III. These courses are offered at least four times a year and the dates, pricing and sign-up can be accessed through the posted schedule. All courses are taught with the student in mind and are designed to give the student the ability to perform field Eddy Current examinations, along with the understanding of how this technique works, when it should be applied, and how it should be interpreted.
