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.

High-Demand Jobs Fuel NDT School Growth

Source: http://www.qualitymag.com/articles/93225-high-demand-jobs-fuel-ndt-school-growth
Quality Magazine, April 1, 2016

BAXTER, MN — Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is one of the leading high demand jobs that is showing growth year over year. The American Institute of Nondestructive Testing is an NDT school located in Baxter, Minn., that has currently moved into a new 6,400 square-foot building.

The American Institute of Nondestructive Testing was founded in May 2013 by CEO Donald Booth. Its NDT training program consists of five months of online training followed by 24 days of intensive hands-on training at their Baxter, Minn., facility.

Graduates will use radiographic, ultrasonic, magnetic particle and visual inspection tools, among others, to learn the skills necessary to enter into the field of nondestructive testing. These skills will be used for inspection in a vast array of fields such as aerospace, aviation, pipeline integrity, railroad, refineries, as well as alternative energies such as nuclear and wind.

Since the grand opening of the NDT School, the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing has had a 95 percent employment placement.

When asked why he believes his school has shown such great success, AINDT CEO Donald Booth replied, "The success of our school is largely due to the fact that skilled trades, more often than not, lead to high demand careers in a shorter time frame of education, which is what people are looking for in today’s economy. Our blended learning program allows for more individuals to be able to change careers without disrupting their lives completely by having to relocate or just drop everything to go back to school. People have lives, family, and commitments, we make it as easy as possible to get an education to move forward in life and get into a high demand career with great pay."

Choose A Career In Nondestructive Testing
Make A Great Living In A Growing Sector

"It's no secret that the US economy, and the global economy in general, have seen some tough times. Many sectors were slow to recover from the 2008 recession, and for the American middle class, things aren’t getting much easier.

In many career fields, an expensive college education leads to a middle class income saddled with student loan debt. NDT (nondestructive testing) is one incredible exception. A career in nondestructive testing requires a relatively small investment in education, and the payoff is an excellent salary.

Just how excellent is that salary? Glad you asked. We researched education and salaries for various careers and compared the results to a typical NDT salary, as reported by PQNDT in their annual NDT salary survey. Check it out–and check out the full survey from PQNDT. Whether you’re a seasoned NDT professional or you’re considering a career in NDT, the survey from PQNDT is an incredible resource."

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."
