Need for Training: There is a growing shortage of QC/NDE Inspection personnel primarily resulting from an aging workforce, as well as high personnel demand required during online and peak outage periods. Additionally, major projects, and new plant construction have created an even more demanding need for qualified QC/NDE Inspectors.

Who Should Attend: This training is conducted by certified and experienced QC/NDE Instructors, and is designed for prospective Quality Inspectors, NDE Technicians, Engineers, and their supervision who are candidates for performing or monitoring welding inspections/examinations during installation, modification, or maintenance activities. Attendees with an inspection/examination or technical background will gain the most from this training; however, prior welding inspection/examination experience is not required.

What this Training is: This Training meets formal training criteria as described in NQA-1/ANSI N45.2.6; SNT-TC-1A/CP-189; and AWS QC-1; and is “Initial” training to familiarize attendees with the requirements, equipment, hardware, and methodology of performing and demonstrating Welding inspections/examinations. Upon satisfactory completion of the course you will receive a Training Certificate which attests to completion of formal training and capability toward your qualification as an Inspector/Examiner by your employer.

What this Training is not: NIC does not certify you as a QC/NDE Inspector. It is the responsibility of your employer to evaluate your overall qualifications for certification in accordance with their certification program.
