Non-Destructive Testing Training

An overview of the training provided by Novatest on non-destructive testing in the civil and industrial sectors.

What are Non-Destructive Tests

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) refers to a set of tests, examinations, and surveys used to assess and monitor the health status of a building, large industrial structures, or the quality of industrial products.
They are called non-destructive because they utilize inspection methods that do not alter or modify the integrity of the material under examination or the functionality of the object being tested.

Purpose of Non-Destructive Tests

Non-Destructive Testing plays a crucial role in monitoring the health status of civil and industrial assets and the quality of industrial production. It enables the evaluation of the integrity of the object being examined and is closely related to safety and risk management. Non-destructive tests allow for continuous monitoring, enabling timely intervention in case of need and mitigating the risk associated with detected anomalies. Continuous monitoring of risk factors is a decisive factor in the lifecycle of a building, a large industrial facility, or the production process of an industrial product. It allows for the detection of alterations, immediate intervention before safety, integrity, and quality are compromised, and before the damage requires a much more costly investment.

Becoming a Non-Destructive Testing Technician

To work in the field of Non-Destructive Testing in the civil and industrial sectors, personnel must have a non-destructive testing certification and undergo a qualification process.
For each non-destructive testing method, personnel must possess the relevant certification as required by the applicable standards.

Non-Destructive Testing Training Center

For over twenty years, Novatest has been distributing non-destructive diagnostic tools in the civil and industrial sectors. One of Novatest’s objectives is to contribute to the professional development of individuals already working or interested in working in the field of non-destructive testing in the civil and industrial sectors. For this reason, Novatest offers highly qualified training services.
It operates a recognized training center for non-destructive testing accredited by RINA (Registro Italiano Navale) for issuing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd level certifications according to the UNI EN ISO 9712 standard and the document UNI/PdR 56:2019 “Certification of Technical Personnel for Non-Destructive Testing in Civil Engineering.”

Non-Destructive Testing Training Courses

Novatest organizes training courses for companies, laboratories, industry professionals, and young high school or university graduates who wish to start working in the field of non-destructive testing. The non-destructive testing courses offered by Novatest in the civil and industrial sectors include:

Pull-Out and Pull-Off Testing Course (ES)

The pull-out and pull-off testing course teaches the proper execution of pull-out tests and pull-off tests, which assess the bond strength or adhesion of materials.

Structural Monitoring Course (MO)

The structural monitoring course focuses on studying monitoring methodologies and data acquisition systems. It includes the analysis of phenomena such as foundation settlements, distress in reinforced concrete structures, and wall settlements. Participants learn to recognize and respond to different types of distress.

Ground Penetrating Radar Operator Course (GR)

The ground-penetrating radar course covers geological, environmental, and structural investigations using radar technology. Participants study the methodology, analyze case studies, and engage in practical exercises, including data processing, to independently perform investigations, interpret radargrams, and generate investigation reports.

Magnetic Particle Testing Method Course (MT)

The magnetic particle testing method course covers the principles and applications of magnetic testing. Participants learn about equipment, testing techniques, and defect analysis of welded joints through practical exercises.

Chemical Testing Course (CH)

The chemical sampling and analysis course trains technical personnel in the sampling of concrete and steel specimens and the execution of chemical tests to assess concrete degradation in construction.

Dynamic Testing Course (DN)

The dynamic testing course addresses anthropogenic and natural vibration phenomena affecting buildings. It teaches methodologies for measurement, data processing, and evaluation of the effects of vibrations on structures.

Flat Jack Testing Course (MP)

The flat jack testing and shear sliding tests on masonry course provide knowledge of the methodology for correctly performing tests with single or double flat jacks. Participants learn to gather valuable data on the mechanical characteristics of a structure.
