Liquid Penetrant Inspection (PT) is another common method of NDT, and is solely used to detect surface breaking discontinuities, which are free from debris that can limit the entrance of the dye (oil, grease and paint).


Liquid Penetrant

British/European Scheme based on BS EN ISO 9712


Personnel Certification Scheme:


This qualification belongs to the individual. It gives the individual the ability to change from company to company or contract to contract without having to be re-examined into a new company name.


Valid for 5 years


In order to become qualified following examination (minimum requirements to comply to BINDT e.g. 4 months practical experience for magnetic particle inspection) experience is required in each discipline you seek to attain, if no experience is held all you will receive is a results notice (this is not a qualification) This means you cannot sign off any reports until the practical experience has been gained, recorded and submitted to PCN for your certificate to be issued.


Examination is of considerably higher difficulty because the knowledge of the subject must be greater and more in-depth questions may be asked. (Although everything will still be covered in the course) also product technology is addressed in greater detail.


Valid for 5 years
