Eddy Current testing depends on measuring the changes in the impedance of a coil due to change in the flow of eddy current in a conductor. Any material change that affects the flow of the induced eddy current sufficiently can be detected. Because so many things affect the flow, eddy current inspection can be applied to a wide variety of test situations.

This course provides detailed information on the inspection of welds using the Eddy-current Testing method, incorporating the latest equipment. This course is suitable for beginners and personnel with an existing NDT knowledge. PCN approved and provides excellent preparation for the Level 1 examination as specified by the relevant PCN documentation.
