August 22 - August 26
Cost: $1,595.00 per student
Duration: 40 Hours
Prerequisites: 80 hours of conventional UT training
Equipment Needed: -Flaw Detectors and probes will be provided on a limited basis, but attendees are welcome to bring their own equipment. If using non- UofUT instruments, the attendee is asked to be familiar with with the basic functionality and navigation of their personal instrument prior to the start of class.

An advanced ultrasonic training course designed for Level II, Level III and NDE management and Supervisory personnel. This class is also ideal for individuals planning to take the API QUTE, UTSW-ISQ or other practical Performance Demonstration examinations testing your detection and characterization skills. This is a 40 hour practical skills development class, not a theory class. 80 hours of UT Lv1 and UT Lv2 training is required prior to taking this course.
This course will present advanced ultrasonic examination techniques for detection, characterization, and sizing of discontinuities caused by the welding process and also service- related damage mechanisms. These methods can be applied to piping, plate, and vessel components in petroleum, chemical, fossil, nuclear, and aerospace industries or any industry involved in ultrasonic examination of metallic product forms.
This “hands-on” practical advanced ultrasonic course includes shear wave and refracted longitudinal wave techniques for detection and signal characterization techniques to address the effects of echo dynamics, rise and fall time, and pulse duration for the identification of the ultrasonic signals.
