Ultrasonic Testing (UT) – Levels 1 and 2 - Appreciation eLearning Package

The Ultrasonic Testing Appreciation eLearning package brings the student into contact with ultrasonic testing even if the testing is conducted by someone else. This could be ultrasonic testing equipment vendors, auditors or supervisors – anyone who works indirectly with ultrasonic testing

This eLearning package gives you 60 days access to the eLearning materials. The training is delivered step by step, one section at a time, but free of any time pressure to complete the individual modules. 

Students completing the full package will be awarded a Certificate of Satisfactory Completion.

The Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Appreciation eLearning Package divided in three modules:

  •  Module 1: Basic Principles of Ultrasound and Ultrasound Testing

  •  Module 2: 0-Degree Ultrasonic Testing

  •  Module 3: Angled Ultrasonic Testing

Fee: £350 + VAT

When you have booked your online training, you will receive an email notification with your login details.
