Visual testing is versatile testing method commonly required by standards. Visual testing can reveal surface defects of any industrial products during manufacturing process as well as during the service.
What you will learn
The visual testing can be easily performed but evaluation of the test is strongly dependent on operator's experience. Because the evaluation is done at the moment of inspection the direct qualification on Level 2 is highly recommended.
Training covers theoretical background necessary for correct performing of tests (in relation to relevant standards). Main focus is on the surface defects' nature and recognition (weldments, castings, forgings, rolled products etc.). During training evaluation based on numerical criterion (welds) as well as evaluation with usage of sets of reference photographs and comparators is practiced.
Level II training highlights
- Inspection conditions
- Defect recognition
- Work with endoscopes
- Evaluation of weldments
- Evaluation of castings
- Health Safety and Environment
The examination and certification process is directly related to qualification system. In case when the training is performed in accordance with EN 473 / ISO 9712 the certificate can be issued by independent European certification body ATG CERT.
