Exhausting Search for a New Beginning Ends in NDT Industry

"I graduated from college with a Bachelors. and upon completion began a career that I eventually came to loathe. After an exhausting search for a new beginning I came across the NDT industry. I became more and more excited in the thought of Testing as a career but the only issue was the difficulty of returning to education considering I have a wife and child. Eventually I enrolled in a local college that would have taken two years to finish and even though I had purchased books and was two days away from attending my first class I discovered AINDT. In a matter of 48 hours I dropped the local school and began my online education immediately through AINDT where 6 months later I was entirely done with all my course work and received 4 different job offers afterwards of which I accepted an NDE Assistant position with Mistras!"

13 Devices You’ve Never Heard Of That Are Saving Lives Right Now

Source: http://www.bergeng.com/blog/life-saving-devices/

"From the GE DM5E to the Labino BigBeam Aero, the world is full of incredible devices that you’ve never even heard of. These devices require specialized training to operate, and they’re a little complex. You won’t hear about them outside the industry in which they’re used. But these devices and their operators are unsung heroes. Without them, we would face grave danger in everyday situations.

Believe it or not, this article isn’t about medical devices! Those have been covered elsewhere. We’re looking at test equipment in a different sector: NDT (nondestructive testing). NDT specialists test all sorts of things that we rely on every day, from the lug nuts on our cars to the bridges we drive over. Without NDT specialists and their incredible tools, we might hesitate to board an airplane or buy a house near a railroad track. And while NDT equipment doesn’t eliminate the dangers associated with all these things, it does help NDT specialists to detect flaws in materials before somebody gets killed."

Click Here to look at testing equipment in NDT (nondestructive testing) and how that affects things we rely on every day.

Hands-On Training - Great Learning Experience

Feb10_InspirationalGraphic"Thanks again guys for allowing me to hop in the UT portion of the hands on training. It was a great learning experience and confidence builder for me. I have been practicing my calibration, and testing the capabilities of the transducers I have since returning to work. I am really trying to get a grasp on what distances and types of materials I can shoot and still resolve differing signals. I forwarded your contact info to our recruiter, and will recommend your institute to other’s I know in the industry.

I can send you guys some scrap parts for your new mag bench. I will begin a collection and let you know when I have some. I can have them shipped or if you guys are interested in taking a tour of our facility and lab, I could schedule something and you could take them with you."

Welding Wonders: 4 Fun Facts About Magnetic Particle Inspection

Source: POSTED ON JANUARY 19, 2016 BY ADMINb2ap3_thumbnail_Jan03_InspirationalGraphic.jpg
SteelCityNDT.com

"Everyone loses from low-quality manufacturing, which is why welders and metal manufacturers have developed magnetic particle inspection or MPI. Designed to detect cracks and flaws, MPI is one of the most popular quality assurance methods in the metals industry."

If you work or take an interest in metals manufacturing, you should make sure and read this article.

Nondestructive Testing (NDT) plays an important role in assuring that structural and mechanical components perform their function in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner. NDT technicians perform the necessary tests to locate the indicators and discontinuities that may cause failures or shut downs in such systems. These tests are performed in a manner that does not affect the future usefulness of the object or material – hence, the name “nondestructive.” NDT allows for careful and thorough materials evaluation without the need for deconstruction or damage. NDT is typically used at various points in a part’s life cycle. NDT can be used prior to the use of a component for the sake of quality control. NDT is also employed while components are in use to detect service related conditions caused by wear, fatigue, corrosion, stress, or other factors which affect reliability.

American Institute of Nondestructive Testing is licensed as a private career school with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. Call today 855-313-0325 to find out if a career in nondestructive testing is right for you!

AINDT Says "Hire our Graduates"

Source: https://www.ndt.org/news.asp?ObjectID=56553

The American Institute of Nondestructive Testing has reached an important milestone this month. Since opening in May of 2013 AINDT has had Ninety NDT graduates and twelve graduating classes. Graduates of the AINDT Nondestructive Testing Technologies Program complete five months of online theory training followed by 24 days of intensive hands on training at AINDT’s 6,200 Sq. Ft facility in Baxter, MN. Graduates leave the institute with Level I & II training in UT, RT, MT, PT, VT as well as, their 40 hour radiation safety training.

"Our graduates have been well received by the industry." Says Don Booth, CEO, "We have had great success placing our graduates in the NDT field due to the fact that they have taken the initiative to invest in an NDT education. More and more often companies are moving away from hiring NDT assistants with little or no prior education. Hiring our graduates saves companies many thousands of dollars in training expenses and they experience a higher retention rate with our graduates as well."
