New technology and new methods are naturally evolving the nature of nondestructive testing processes. The new wave of change affects everything, including all formal processes, and the knowledge base requirements. The bottom line here is that you must keep your nondestructive testing processes up-to-date, compliant, and above all manage your skills base to meet emerging needs.
Best practice for businesses is to cover all options:
• Training – Nondestructive training needs to be semi—ongoing, depending on your specific requirements and in-house skills levels.
• Formal practices – While formal processes are pretty straightforward, naturally new requirements and new compliance issues arise over time. This is another area in which training is important, but also be aware that it is very strongly advised to ensure compliance with audits and expert oversight.
• Nondestructive testing services – It’s not at all uncommon for some types of nondestructive testing to require additional levels of expertise, and above all practical knowledge. The easy way to do this is to engage a specialist nondestructive testing consultancy service.
Ideally, to cover all angles, you should engage a consultancy which can provide training, auditing, and specialist nondestructive testing services. A good example of a service provider of this type is a company called Larson NDT Level III Services and Training, LLC. This is one of America’s leading nondestructive testing consultancies, with an enviable track record of broad spectrum nondestructive testing credentials.
They also happen to be the go to place for all the services you need to manage change. They provide training services to certification level, a full range of formal auditing and compliance services, and also do nondestructive testing as required. This is practical help when you need it, and they do cover all bases in terms of any kind of problem solving you may require. As you may agree, getting all the services you need from a single provider is also a big plus.
