monitor or evaluate. This document provides guidelines for the establishment of a qualification and certification program. Written Practice. The employer shall establish a written practice for the control and administration of nondestructive testing personnel training, examination and certification. The employer’s written practice should describe the responsibility of each level of certification for determining the acceptability of materials or components in accordance with the applicable codes, standards, specifications and procedures. Education, Training, Experience Requirements for Initial Qualification. Candidates for certification in nondestructive testing should have sufficient education, training and experience to ensure qualification in those nondestructive testing methods for which they are being considered for certification. Table 6.3.1A [Table 5 in this volume, for electromagnetic testing] lists the recommended training and experience factors to be considered by the employer in establishing written practices for initial qualification of Level I and II individuals. Training Programs. Personnel being considered for initial certification should complete sufficient organized training to become thoroughly familiar with the principles and practices of the specified nondestructive test method related to the level of certification desired and applicable to the processes to be used and the products to be tested. Examinations. For Level I and II personnel, a composite grade should be determined by simple averaging of the results of the general, specific and practical examinations described below. Examinations administered for qualification should result in a passing composite grade of at least 80 percent, with no individual examination having a passing grade less than 70 percent. The examination for near vision acuity should ensure natural or corrected near distance acuity in at least one eye such that the applicant can read a minimum of jaeger size 2 or equivalent type and size letter at a distance of not less than 305 mm (12 in.) on a standard jaeger test chart. This test should be administered annually. Practical Examination for NDT Level I and II. The candidate should demonstrate ability to operate the necessary nondestructive test equipment and to record and analyze the resultant information to the degree required. At least one selected specimen should be tested and the results of the nondestructive test analyzed by the candidate. Certification. Certification of all levels of nondestructive test personnel is the responsibility of the employer. Certification of nondestructive test personnel shall be based on demonstration of satisfactory qualification [in accordance with sections on education, training, experience and examinations] as described in the employer’s written practice. Personnel certification records shall be maintained on file by the employer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
