Ultrasonic Phased Array Level 2

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) today is a widely accepted and frequently applied method of inspection. It can be used to enhance the existing ultrasonic capability. PAUT is a powerful but complex imaging technique, based on the physics of ultrasound and there are no shortcut solutions to ensure its competent use. 

This course is intended for level 2 ultrasound examiners who want to gain knowledge of the rather new UT imaging techniques using PAUT, allowing a full visual documentation of manual and automatic ultrasonic scanning of the objects, which could possibly replace radiographical inspection with its high cost and risks. In Order to successfully work with Phased Array you need to understand the potential and limits of this technology. We will provide you with the basics to get the best use out of PAUT. One of the many great features of PAUT is its ability to create visual representations with exact coordinates of your testing results (location of possible defects). 

The accredited certification body in Germany provides you with the internationally recognized ISO 9712 certificate after passing the written theoretical and practical examinations, and showing proof of sufficient time of practical experience.
