Course 2 - NDT of Composites
In this three day (24 hour) course, the student becomes familiar with composites and the nondestructive test methods used to inspect them. Emphasis is on ultrasonic inspection and the various techniques used for the inspection of composites. The course includes types of defects sought, the use of reference standards, procedures and acceptance criteria, and advanced inspection methods. Both classroom lecture and hands-on labs are included. The course is intended for Level I, II, and III technicians, as well as engineers and managers who are directly involved with NDT of composites. This course is intended for any person who has the need to understand what role NDT plays in the composite testing field.

Course 3 - Advanced NDT of Composites
This three day course deals with situations that the NDT technician will encounter in the inspection of composite materials. It is intended for individuals who have attended Course 1 or who already have a good working knowledge of NDT and composite materials. In addition to a brief review of the material contained in Course 1, it discusses in detail items such as visual inspection prior to NDT, discontinuity characterization and sizing, damage and repair inspections, typical ultrasonic techniques, and abilities and limitations of each NDT method. Both classroom lecture and hands-on labs with different types of equipment are included.
Course 4 - Bondmaster Training
This is a 2 day (16 hour) course that introduces the student to composites, NDT methods, and the Bondmaster multi-mode composite tester. The Bondmaster training course is set in a classroom environment and covers definitions, NDT methods used to inspect advanced composites, Bondmaster and modes of operation. The course also includes hands on training with the Bondmaster. This course is intended for any person who has the need to understand bond testing of composite laminates and core assemblies.
