What Does a Non Destructive Inspector Make?

Source: Chron, What Does a Non Destructive Inspector Make?by Fred Decker, Demand Media

"NDT certification requires a combination of formal training and practical experience. For example, candidates with a degree in engineering need only one year's experience to be eligible for API certification, while those with a high school education need three years' experience. Each certification must also be maintained through a regular program of continuing education. The PQNDT survey noted that unemployment in the field was approximately 5 percent in 2012, lower than the national average for all occupations, and salaries were up over the previous year. Most respondents to the survey felt confident in their job security, and 49 percent expected job prospects to be better than the previous year."

Nondestructive Testing Market by Technology & Application - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2014 - 2020

Source: NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/

NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is the process of inspecting, testing, or evaluating materials, components, or assemblies for discontinuities or differences in characteristics without altering the original attributes. It has the property to determine the discontinuities and differences in material characteristics. Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is broadly divided into NDT equipment and NDT services market. Key NDT inspection methods covered in the report are ultrasonic testing, magnetic and electromagnetic testing, Infrared (IR) thermography testing, shearography testing, radiographic testing, liquid penetrant testing, eddy current testing, and visual testing.

Out of the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods ultrasonic testing, radiographic testing, and eddy current testing are expected to capture most of the market size owing to the various applications across end user segments. Ultrasonic testing has been the prime choice among the end users for fault determination as it is non-hazardous to operators or nearby personnel and does not affect the material being tested and provides instantaneous results and with the continuous innovation in the ultrasonic NDT testing. Radiographic testing is likely to intercept conventional technologies in the near future.

The demand for the NDT equipment used in inspections and quality has observed a significant growth and is expected to grow due to the increasing importance for quality control among industry players across various industry verticals. North America holds the largest market size in the NDT equipment due to increasing use of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) in maintaining and inspecting the aging infrastructure and strict safety regulations implemented by the U.S. government which forces manufacturers to regularly engage in inspection activities.The key drivers for non-contact NDT market are strong government safety regulations, user friendly software, automation, and robotics. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to observe significant growth due to rapid growth in infrastructure and power generation in the countries such as India, China, and Japan. This creates an ample of opportunities for the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) companies in these countries.

Since the NDT equipment used are very complex in their kinematics and very expensive, and they not only differ widely but there is also lack of NDT equipment knowledge among the end users, all these are acting as a driver for the growth of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) services market such as Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspection, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) training, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) renting services, and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) consultation services are growing rapidly with high growth potential in the future. There is a lot of opportunity for the existing players and new entrants to innovate and differentiate the products range. Key players in the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) include GE Measurement & Control (U.S.), Olympus Corporation (Japan), Nikon Metrology (Belgium), Mistras Group, Inc. (U.S.), and Zetec (U.S.).

Aging Workforce, Skills Gap Leaves Jobs Unfilled

Source: Richard Ryman, Press-Gazette Media 6:48 p.m. CDT October 1, 2014b2ap3_thumbnail_Lab-4.jpg


Read this great article published by the Green Bay Press Gazette and another reason CEO Donald Booth started the American Institute of Nondestructive Testing (AINDT), Baxter, MN.

"There are many reasons companies, manufacturers especially, cannot find enough skilled workers. Among them, a perception by parents, students, teachers and counselors that a four-year degree is better than a one- or two-year degree, regardless of the student's real interests."

Worker shortage continues to be an issue throughout the country. This issue is contributed to both a skills gap and demographics of the country. Read the article to see how the state of Wisconsin is engaging and connecting with employers, job hunters, parents and students.
