Radiographic Testing Certificate

CIP Code


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 Length

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

Admission Dates

Instructor’s permission.
