Invitation to Attend SGS's Time of Flight Diffraction Training Course in Spijkenisse, Netherlands
The SGS NDT Training and Examination Center has organized a Level 2 Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD) training course in accordance with EN 473 and SNT standard in Spijkenisse, Netherlands. It will be held in English from June 7-18, 2010 followed by exams on June 21 and 22, 2010.
TOFD Training Course by SGS
To be eligible for the TOFD training course, candidates must hold a UT level II certificate. The theory is carefully explained to enable the average NDT practitioner to comprehend all aspects of the technology. Use of the latest techniques and visual aids, such as animated presentation material, together with video projection of instrument displays, enhance the learning experience and enable students to absorb the information.
The SGS Training and Examination Center provides a range of welded samples suitable for TOFD inspection. All samples meet the requirements of EN473 criteria for TOFD training.
The tutor explains the equipment and software by the process of demonstration both for setup prior to data acquisition, and analysis postdata acquisition. The candidates learn about the process of equipment calibration and the adjustment of the correct parameters for the tests. Upon completion of data acquisition, data analysis and postdata acquisition procedures will be demonstrated and discussed with the students.
Candidates are then encouraged to practice the data analysis procedures themselves by using a comprehensive range of scanned files, which contain a broad spectrum of preservice and inservice flaws.
Throughout the duration of the training, practical experiments and continuous assessments are conducted to monitor the candidates' progress and understanding.
The training and examinations include data acquisition. Moreover, candidates are required to produce an NDT written instruction for a Level 1 candidate to follow for data acquisition on a particular sample.
