Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Training Courses

Non-destructive Testing (NDT) is vital for quality control and health and safety across industry.

NDT is often used in fields such as aerospace, oil and gas, nuclear, power generation, medical, rail and general manufacturing. The skills required for NDT inspection are highly transferable. This means that no matter where you work your knowledge and expertise will be in demand.

TWI's NDT training courses are built on the decades of knowledge and expertise developed by TWI limited and The Welding Institute, which has led to over 50 years of training experience.

We offer a wide range of standard theory and practical courses as well as bespoke courses that can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.

Our courses can be studied at one of our many global training centres or we can arrange to hold the training at your premises.

TWI training also offers eLearning options which allow you to study in your own time and at your own pace. These eLearning options include pre-course, blended learning, appreciation and refresher options.

TWI's range of NDT personnel training options include conventional ndt methods such as visual testing, penetrant inspection, magnetic particle testing, eddy current testing, radiographic testing and ultrasonic testing.

We also specialise in advanced NDT techniques including digital control and imaging, phased array ultrasonic testing, time of flight diffraction, digital and computed radiography and eddy current testing. Applicable to all industry sectors, these courses are ideal for anyone involved in casting, forging or weld inspection either during manufacture or in-service. 

TWI training are also working to close the skills gap in the UK through our NDT apprenticeships. This will enable you to learn on the job in a real life working environment.

Our knowledgeable and experienced lecturers are trusted by industry to deliver high quality training and certification worldwide.
