"It is important that you have a guide to NDT Certification After Your Military Career. The Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force each have a career field dedicated to inspecting a variety of components. These inspections are performed in such a way as to not damage or alter the components. Regardless of whether we call this process Nondestructive Inspection (NDI), Nondestructive Testing (NDT), or Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE), the men and women who perform it are all in the same predicament when they leave the Service; they are no longer certified.


Well, to answer that, we must first be clear about what it means to be certified. A certification is an employer’s way of saying they have vetted your training, experience, and ability to pass some exams, and is willing to assume the risks that are inherent in your work. If you skip steps during an inspection and miss something, you can be held accountable, and so can your employer. Additionally, the certification process is owned by each employer. Just because your last employer certified you doesn’t mean your current employer requires the same level of knowledge and experience. Aside from organizations like The American Society For Nondestructive Testing (www.asnt.org), which offers impartial third-party certifications, every certification you will ever earn will be through an employer. If you are currently serving in the military, your Service is your employer. As a matter for debate, it may be that the military does not provide a guide for NDI / NDT Certification After Your Military Career, due to retention. NDT is lucrative as a civilian and there is no incentive for the DOD to shine a light on the green grass.

You can earn an ASNT Level II or Level III certification (and a few others) as soon you as you are qualified and are able to pass the exams. Your military experience will provide you with a qualifications boost that most non-military technician do not have toward certification. These certifications are good for 5 years. The qualifications follow those found in SNT-TC-1A, which is an ASNT recommended practice titled, Personnel Qualification and Certification in Nondestructive Testing."
