As all of you who are NDT certified know, NDT certification is now valid for 3 years, from the date of acceptance into the program. Re-certification is a new process that requires 20 hours of continuing education in the three year time period. The 20 hours must include a minimum of 8 hours of NDT training. The other 12 hours can be any CE course in your area (pediatric vs. adult).
BUT DO YOU KNOW??
The 8 hour NDT training can come from:
- ANY NDTA sponsored education including conferences, seminars and certificate courses. NOT JUST ADVANCED COURSES!!
- ANY Non-NDTA sponsored NDT courses taught by an active NDTA Instructor (see our links below)
- Hours must be obtained in area of certification (adult or pediatrics)
Here are some possibilities of continuing education courses that would meet the requirements:
