If your business is engaged in nondestructive testing services, it’s a good idea to review your operations for business planning and staff development purposes. Best practice is to engage nondestructive testing consultants as part of this process.
The bottom line here is that:
• NDT testing is a continually evolving process on multiple levels – New technologies, new materials, and new business priorities tend to create a demand for organizational and operational change.
• Staffing needs - Staff typically move on over time and maintaining core business skills through training is a natural issue for consideration. Nondestructive testing courses can be particularly useful as part of a regular in-house training program. NDT trainers can provide assistance with in-house work, as well, useful as part of practical training.
• For business purposes - A consultant review also offers a good way of reviewing operations, and checking operations against current best practice. (Please be advised – This part of the consultancy service is invaluable, and acts as an “audit” process for your current testing regime.)
As you can see, engaging an NDT consultant is a very useful process. The next issue, obviously, is where to find a consultancy which can deliver all these services. To save you some time, and some frustration, looking for a consultant, we’ve found a good example of a top NDT consultancy.
