Category: Non Destructive Technician
NOTE: The following description is a GENERAL Overview of this career and not a description of a particular job posting.
The main function of a Non-Destructive Testing Technician is to test the safety of structures, vehicles, or vessels using x-ray, ultrasound, fiber optic or related equipment. An NDT would use visual, penetrant, magnetic particle, ultrasonic, x-ray, eddy current testing, or other non-destructive methods to inspect a structure or part (for instance, a sample weld) to ensure it meets specific standards or specifications. These tests are performed without damaging the structure or part, and are done to ensure that the tested area contains no defects that would prevent the sample weld, structure or part from performing as expected or failing outright.
Tools used to perform these tests include oscilloscopes, radiation detectors, remote reading thermometers, voltage meters, and x-ray or radiography equipment. A career in Non-Destructive Testing would require knowledge of the practical application of engineering, science, and technology, and may require previous experience with analytical, scientific, and computer aided design software.
Most Non-Destructive Technician careers require a high school diploma, as well as training in vocational schools, related on-the-job experience, and/or an associate's degree.
Non-Destructive Testing careers typically require the ability to:
- Obtain (and/or re-certify) a visual, penetrant, and magnetic particle testing certification
- Obtain security clearance and military contractor badge
- Pass a drug test
- Be reliable and punctual
Previous experience, particularly with necessary career-related tools and software, is often required.
