Study Guides: Level III
The second edition of this study guide presents a detailed overview of Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A (2011). Included are inquiries and responses from ASNT’s SNT-TC-1A Interpretation Panel, ANSI/ASNT CP-189 (2011) and the ASNT Level III Certification Program. Also, a section is devoted to the general application of eleven different NDT methods, including topical outlines, references and method specific questions and answers. A section on materials and processes for NDT technology is provided. The study guide is intended to assist the candidate preparing for the Level III Basic Examination. Intended to be used with comprehensive NDT text, such as NDT Handbook: Volume 10, NDT Overview (item number 0140), Materials and Processes for NDT Technology (item number 2250), SNT-TC-1a (2011 edition) and ANSI/ASNT CP-189 (2011 edition). New to this edition is magnetic flux leakage testing
This new edition of ASNT Level III Study Guide on Electromagnetic Testing (ET) is intended to provide ASNT Level III candidates with a concise reference with which to prepare for the ASNT Level III examination in electromagnetic testing. The material in this study guide addresses the body of knowledge in ANSI/ASNT CP-105: ASNT Standard Topical Outlines for Qualification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel (2011). Changes to this edition: • All questions are now multiple choice with four unique answers to more closely match ASNT exam format. • New, expanded, separate chapters on alternating current field measurement and RFT with separate question sets for each technique. • A change in terminology from eddy current to electromagnetic testing is employed throughout to reflect the overall method as designated in CP-105, when it is the method and not the eddy current technique that is being addressed. 85 pages, ASNT 2014.
This Infrared and Thermal Testing (IR) Study Guide provides an overview of the principles and applications of infrared and thermal testing. It's written to assist the Level III candidate preparing for the infrared and thermal testing exam.The topics covered include materials characteristics, thermal instrumentation, equipment operation, understanding test results and applications. Review questions follow every chapter. Intended for use with a comprehensive NDT text, such as the Nondestructive Testing Handbook, Third Edition, Volume 3, Infrared and Thermal Testing.
This addition to ASNT’s Study Guide series presents fundamental information intended to assist the candidate preparing for Level III leak testing (LT) examinations such as the ASNT Central Certification Program.
