ASNT Continuing Education Program

Mission and Objectives of the Continuing Education Program

ASNT exists to create a safer world by advancing scientific, engineering, and technical knowledge in the field of nondestructive testing.™ In support of this mission, ASNT supports high-quality learning activities to respond to the educational needs of nondestructive testing (NDT) professionals.

The major objectives of the ASNT Continuing Education Programs are: (1) to identify, endorse, facilitate, provide and approve high-quality learning events to respond to the needs of nondestructive testing (NDT) professionals (2) to encourage continuing education in NDT and related technology; (3) to establish permanent records for individual participants for accumulating, updating, and transferring information concerning noncredit continuing education experiences.

History of ASNT Continuing Education Program and Awarding Continuing Education Units (CEU)

In July 1977, ASNT adopted a plan whereby CEUs could be awarded through ASNT for educational and training programs involving NDT.

Definition of CEU

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) has been designed as a uniform unit of measurement to facilitate the accumulation and exchange of standardized information about individual participation in noncredit continuing education. The CEU is intended to serve all interests, whether public or private, and whether individual, institutional, organizational, governmental or societal.
