This bundle is designed exclusively for the students at the American Aerospace Technical Academy (AATA) to get qualified in Level I and II for the following methods: Ultrasonic Testing, Magnetic Particle Testing and Liquid Penetrant Testing. You will be going through this as a part of a cohort, with other students and to keep all students on the same page, we do have deadlines for each course within the bundle as follows: Week 1 to 7: Ultrasonic Testing, Week 8 & 9: Magnetic Particle Testing, Week 10 & 11: Liquid Penetrant Testing. Examination for each course will be conducted in the last week for that particular course. So if you finish the course earlier, you will still be testing together with the rest of the students in the final week of each course within the bundle. These courses meet or exceed the requirements of SNT-TC-1A and NAS 410.
Dylan Lennox is the Deputy Director of AATA and an Inspection and Quality Control expert who partners organizations, executives and independent contractors to develop business and strategy for the inspection marketplace. After spending a decade working in non-destructive examination and integrity management for a multi-million dollar firm, Dylan knows what truly drives the industry and how to prepare the next generation of inspection professionals. It’s not about what you can read in a book or instruction manual, it’s how well you connect with the heart-beating people you’re trying to help and communicate your understanding and the needs of the industry back to them.
