Material Science: Radiographic Testing Certificate

Provides foundational knowledge related to nondestructive testing (NDT) and offers the opportunity to gain hands-on training in the NDT method of radiographic inspection. Radiography uses x-rays or gamma rays to show defects which might otherwise be invisible. A vast array of material can be examined in this efficient and reliable way, ranging from tiny electronic components to 20-foot freestanding concrete slabs.
