About the course

Magnetic particle Testing (MT) is a non-destructive testing (NDT) process for detecting surface and shallow subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials.
During the classroom training students will learn the requirements to become Qualified & Certified to successfully perform Magnetic Particle Testing. The curriculum covers all aspects of magnetic particle testing such as, Magnetic Principles & Theory, Flux Leakage, Magnetic Fields, AC/DC current, direct & indirect magnetization, fluorescent & dry power applications, and more.
Magnetic Particle Testing Level I & II (MT) is designed for those students that wish to enter the NDT Industry as a MT Technician. This class meets the classroom training requirements in accordance with SNT-TC-1A, & CP-189 and covers the body of knowledge outlined in CP-105.
