To understand the principles of various NDE methods and to prevent fracture of structures and components.
With basic knowledge you gain here, you will become capable of selecting applicable NDE methods, differentiating merit of competing methods, seeking advanced methods that may be needed in your practice and evaluating testing organization/personnel. Using knowledge from this course, you will also understand regulatory requirements, standards, and guidelines concerning NDE.
