Magnetic Particle Testing (MPT) Level-I Course

Training Course Objective :

To provide a basic Knowledge of MT to enable a participant to carry out tests according to a established procedure under supervision of a level II or III personnel. The course is especially designed to provide a sound theoretical knowledge and practical skill for MT required for a level I technician.

MT Level I Responsibilities :

To carry out operations as per written procedure/instruction from level II personnel. He shall be able to set up equipment, calibrate and carry out tests, classify and report the results. He shall not be responsible for the choice of test technique nor for assessment of the test results.
