Non-Destructive Examination (NDE)

NDE is a way of examining material without damaging it to find hidden indications of potential flaws. With aging bridges, roadways, power plants and other infrastructure, more job opportunities exist for those trained to perform inspections.

Introduction to NDE
Build a stronger Non-Destructive Examination (NDE) team by ensuring everyone has the same foundation. A knowledgeable team improves business processes, develops quality products and builds team morale. While designed with managers, supervisors, engineers, quality inspectors, procurement, source inspectors and technical personnel in mind, the course is suited for anyone.
