Training course SONREB

“SonReb method – Sclerometric (SC), Magnetometric (MG) and Ultrasonic (UT) investigations” – cod. SONREB

According to the RINA RC / C18 Regulation for the certification of personnel in charge of non-destructive, semi-destructive tests on concrete structures, reinforced and prestressed concrete, masonry.


The course includes the study of the methodology, the analysis of case studies, practical exercises with subsequent processing of data for preparation for the 2nd level RINA exam.
