Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Level II is an extension of UT Level I and delves into the theory and principles to a much greater depth.
After a review of the basic UT Level I subjects, variables such as beam profile, dead, near and far zones, acoustic impedance, absorption and scattering are presented. Other subjects essential for performing angle beam inspection of welds include mode conversion, refraction, and attenuation are covered. Calibration of the UT instruments is demonstrated as well as the examination of several test specimens. Immersion and through transmission are discusses along with a variety of other techniques. The evaluation and interpretation of test results along with the need for complete and accurate test reporting are presented.
This is an essential course for those practitioners who will be pursuing a career in Ultrasonic Testing and for those striving for certification as a Level II.
NDTclassroom.com's Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Level II training is now available. Level I will be available in the near future.

This course meets the recommendations for training as described in SNT-TC-1A.
NOTE: There is RECOMMENDED READING assigned at the beginning of the course. The completion of these assignments in addition to self-study is strongly encouraged and will add to the overall training benefit and time to be credited. It will also better prepare the student for the practical lab/’hands-on” session. It is recommended that the student a log of the self-study time. It is also recommended that the applicable Level III be involved and confirm that the reading and self-study assignments have been completed. This should become a part of the student’s training records which may be used in conjunction with subsequent certifications.
