The first step to an exciting and rewarding NDT career starts here. Watch Choose NDT created by ASNT for young people to introduce them to the nondestructive profession. See it now by pressing the Play button, above. May be downloaded as well.

Choose NDT is an invitation to young people exploring careers to learn about nondestructive testing (NDT) and the variety of jobs available in this dynamic field.

The DVD is an entertaining tongue-in-cheek look at what nondestructive testing may have been perceived as in the twentieth century versus what an NDT career is in the new century.

Critical to public safety, NDT is the examination of an object or material in a manner which does not damage them. Most people are not aware of nondestructive testing, but its impact is everywhere: in the buildings where we work, in the products we use, in the cars we drive, the planes we fly in and the bridges we cross. Without NDT the world would be a much more dangerous place.

NDT workers are part of one of the most exciting industries, working in aerospace, extreme construction, offshore drilling, manufacturing, even motorsports and theme parks. A career for the high technology age, NDT offers opportunity, security, satisfaction, and challenge. This is a field that opens the door to variety of career directions from positions as technicians, engineers, and researchers to managers, educators, trainers and business owners.

Show Choose NDT to young people and ask them to imagine working at a world-renowned amusement park, a pipeline in Alaska or being part of a space shuttle or aircraft carrier team. Request and share the companion Choose NDT brochure which provides more information about NDT and the variety of career options.
