With expert trainers and quality technical content, the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Engineering Technician Level 3 is a great way to advance your NDT career.
NDT Engineering Technicians oversee, validate and audit by reinspection the work of NDT Operators, and manage projects and specific areas of work. On completion, you will hold three NDT certificates (mapped to engineering registration at the EngTech level) and will have transferable skills which include a broad knowledge of engineering principles and manufacturing processes.
NDT Engineering Technicians are in-demand and can work in a variety of industries such as aerospace, motorsport, power generation and distribution, manufacturing, railways, oil and gas, marine and construction.
This Apprenticeship is delivered in partnership with specialist NDT Training schools, including Lavender International, IMechE Argyll Ruane and the South West School of NDT.
Typical Job Roles: NDT Operator
Online, classroom and practical
For NDT Operator Level 2 the individual employer will decide whether an employee is suitable for the programme. There is a requirement to have good aided or unaided eyesight to satisfy the mandatory NDT eyesight test and have appropriate physical fitness.
Apprentices without level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the End Point Assessment.
In the NDT Testing Sector, apprentices are required to achieve NDT Level 2 certification in three methods in accordance with national and international standards.
To successfully complete the apprenticeship, the learner needs to pass an independent End Point Assessment which consists of three distinct assessment methods:
|Assessment Method||Area Assessed||Weighting|
|Synoptic Assessment Interview||Knowledge||25%|
|Review of Portfolio evidence and achievements||Knowledge, skills and behaviours||15%|
|Project showcase||Knowledge, skills and behaviours||60%|
An apprenticeship was always a route I wanted to go down. I was unhappy in my previous job and there was limited chance to progress. However now I can really see a future. I’m really looking forward to pushing on and reaching the next level. Everyone – GB Inspections and Skills Training UK – has been so supportive. It’s made a real difference.
