With all of the ways that you or your company could be investing your finances, you need to make shrewd decisions as to where funds should be allocated.

When it comes to NDT training, this streamlined process certainly offers more than sufficient return on your investment. But you may find yourself asking, just how much should I budget for NDT training for myself or for my employees?

Here’s everything you need to know.

What is NDT Training?

Nondestructive testing serves a variety of industries, from railways, to green energy to infrastructure. It is an exciting and innovative field that continues to grow exponentially, both in demand and fields serviced.

Nondestructive testing technicians learn how to perform the best methods of inspection on sensitive assets that don’t damage components.

NDT certification can look different depending on the level of certification you seek:

  • Level I Limited and Level I: At this level of experience, technicians perform very few varieties of testing and are closely monitored by supervisors.
  • Level II: At this level of certification, technicians are expected to be well-versed in the codes, standards, and specifications of the jobs they are performing. Level II technicians are capable of setting up and conducting all inspection procedures on their own and can serve as supervisors for less experienced technicians.
  • Level III: This is the highest level of certification available to a technician and therefore requires the most of each NDT certification candidate. These individuals should have the most experience of all three levels. And are often called upon to train or supervise other technicians in training.

What is the Financial Investment for NDT Training?

Just as levels of certification vary, the cost for certain courses is contingent on what type of training you seek.
