PAUT LEVEL II
Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) is an advanced non-destructive examination technique that uses ultrasonic probes capable of pulsing elements individually at different time intervals. Compared with conventional ultrasonics, PAUT provides higher probability of detection, it is faster, more reliable, and it provides 2D or 3D images and a permanent record of the inspection through the data recorded.
This course is designed for any experienced Level 2 qualified ultrasonic technicians looking to expand their knowledge and gain a qualification in phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT).
What will I learn?
FREE PRE-COURSE ELEARNING PACKAGE - available only to students enrolling on this course:
Familiarise yourself with the theory and key concepts that will prepare you for the classroom training with the PAUT Pre-course eLearning Package. The eLearning material is made available 30 days before the course start date, giving you plenty of time to build your confidence before you enter the classroom.
This course will teach you the principles of phased array inspection, principles of phased array probes, principles of inspection sensitivity, and phased array instrument. You will also learn about scanning with phased array probes, calibration and checks, software for data collection and data analysis, and principles of data analysis. The course will also teach you about software familiarity, use of software tools for defect detection and sizing, data analysis, procedures for verification of flaw existence and position, and reporting. Typical equipment used on the course: Olympus Omniscan, TD Focus Scan, Sonatest Harfang, Zetec Topaz, M2M Gekko equipment. If your course is equipment specific please contact us to confirm the equipment that will be used for the event. The training is in accordance with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9712 and ends with the certification examination.
PCN candidates must be qualified to a minimum of BS EN ISO 9712 Level 2 Ultrasonic Testing. CSWIP candidates should be qualified to a minimum of BS EN ISO 9712 in Ultrasonic Testing. CSWIP certification is also available for candidates holding ASNT UT Welds. It will be considered on an individual basis and evidence of training and experience presented to the training centre on application. Non-BS EN ISO 9712 certificate holders will be required to sit the CSWIP UT Welds Level 2 General Paper.
