Radiographic Testing Certificate

Provides foundational knowledge related to nondestructive testing (NDT) and offers the opportunity to gain hands-on training in the NDT method of radiographic inspection. Radiography uses X-rays or gamma rays to show defects that might otherwise be invisible. A vast array of material can be examined in this efficient and reliable way, ranging from tiny electronic components to 20-foot freestanding concrete slabs.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Radiographic Testing certificate, students will be able to:

  • Perform the process control checks for computed radiography per ASTM Standard E2445.
  • Perform all radiographic film process control checks in accordance with referenced record logs, codes, standards, and specifications.
  • Perform all radiographic safety procedures in accordance with referenced record logs, codes, standards, and specifications.
  • Produce a film image and a computed radiography image that meet all image qualifications in accordance with referenced codes, standards, and specifications.

Program Length

The certificate program is two-to-three quarters in length, depending on the time students need to satisfactorily complete all graduation requirements.
