Visual testing is the most common method of nondestructive testing. In fact, most nondestructive applications rely on a visual assessment of parts or components prior to applying their inspection method. Without visual testing, discontinuities such as cracks in aircraft parts may be missed, potentially leading to life-ending tragedies. This course, combined with the practicum (NDX-7005), provides sufficient organized training to ensure the student is thoroughly familiar with the principles and practices of visual testing. Upon completion of this course plus practicum (NDX-7005), students should be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of NDE visual techniques and their applications from Level 1 and 2 qualifications as described in ASNT's SNT-TC-1A using the topical outline of ASNT CP-105-2011.
