Another Happy Graduate of AINDT!

Hey guys,

I just finished my first week and thought I'd share what it has been like. Of course, I'm just assisting on these for now, but once I get my certs, I'll be out there on my own doing this stuff.

Day 1: MT on welds for a piece to be used by a private space exploration company.

Day2: UT lamination scans on large steel plates used for construction of a new ferry.

Day 3: PT on welds for ferry construction; UT shear wave on pipe welds

Day 4: UT thickness gauging the hull of a small freighter

Day 5: UT thickness gauging safety pins on the top of a grain elevator (about 100 feet up, harnessed and dangling off the roof); MT on a repair weld for the boom of a cement truck

Never know what the day will hold for me, and I really like that. No RT, which is unfortunate. We've mostly got maritime customers, but it seems like there is quite a bit of railroad, construction, paper mill, and manufacturing customers, too.

It's a good gig. I'll let you know when another position opens up.

Thanks again for everything,

American Instutute of NonDestructive Testing Now Open!

Although there are signs of improvement in some areas, the general economic situation for much of the country is still less than desireable. Of course the best way to continue improving conditions is for people to have good-paying jobs so they can provide for their families and contribute to the economy.

Some of the most sought-after jobs today are skilled workers that are trained in specific trades, hence the advent of the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing. Located in Baxter, MN, the school provides certification in nondestructive testing (NDT) in as little as 16 weeks.

NDT helps ensure that structural and mechanical components perform their function in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner. 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.

There continues to be a greater demand for people who have NDT certification, and the Institute also helps with job placement, where starting salaries are often around $50,000. Certification includes twelve weeks of online classes followed by four weeks of on-site training and application, which provides the experience to go along with the education.

Learning institutions who provide similar classes have reported waiting lists for this in-demand certification. The American Institute for Nondestructive Testing also has limited space and is expected to fill up soon. For more information call 1-855-313-0325 or visit www.trainingndt.com today.
