The field of nondestructive testing is far and wide when it comes to the industries involved and the methods of testing used. In addition to the far reach of nondestructive testing, the levels within also offer a variety of features as well.

As a non destructive testing technician, you can earn a number of different sequential certifications, from Level I limited to NDT level 3 certification.

Reaching Level three certification means that a technician has reached the highest possible NDT certification through NDT courses at TXNDT or another qualified NDT school.

As a technician working toward this certification or a client in need of services, you may be curious as to what services a technician at this level can provide.

Today on the blog, we answer the FAQ: What do NDT Level III services include? Here’s everything you need to know.

What NDT Level III Services Do for Clients

For Technicians

If you’re new to a career shift, or have been considering nondestructive testing for some time, achieving level III certification should be the ultimate goal.

By reaching the highest level of certification, not only will you have ample experience in the nondestructive testing field and demonstrate exceptional skill through your examinations, but you will also broaden opportunities.

As a level III NDT technician, your expertise permits you to also serve as a supervisor for emerging NDT technicians and help guide them as they learn the ropes of NDT.

Level III certification can also be more attractive for people who would rather teach and appreciate the practice of nondestructive testing than actually perform tests in the field.
