Non-Destructive Tester and Inspection Technician

Job Overview

Non-destructive testers and inspection technicians conduct tests that provide information about the condition of materials and components (without destroying them) to determine defects and faults and ensure compliance with applicable codes and standards. They operate radiographic, ultrasonic, liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, eddy current and similar testing equipment to detect defects.

They interact with other related trades and equipment operators as a regular part of their duties. Non-destructive testers and inspection technicians use advanced sensing and imaging equipment such as X-rays, microscopes, thermometers, oscilloscopes, and radiation detectors.

They may also use analytical or scientific software.
