Ultrasonics

Ultrasonics (Level 1, 2 & 3) 

Ultrasonic inspection uses high frequency sound waves to detect imperfections or changes in properties within the materials. It can also be used to measure the thickness of a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials where access from one side only is available. 

ATTAR offers Ultrasonics training in these sectors:
- General Engineering, Corrosion detection and Mapping, Welds, Castings, Forgings, Nodes/Nozzles & Conveyor Belt

Typical Applications
- Thickness Determination of Materials
- Inspection of Castings
- Inspection of Forgings

Prerequisite Index

LL&N - All courses have a minimum pre-requisite of Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LL&N) and basic knowledge of materials and processes.

Materials Technology/Multisector (or a knowledge of materials processes) is a recommended pre-requisite for all Level 1 and Level 2 courses. Completion of a Materials Technology course is not compulsory. However, most students without a formal background in materials technology/processes may find aspects of the industry specific exams difficult without completion of the Materials Technology (Multisector) course.

Math¹ - Basic math skills including algebra.

 

Math² - Math skills including algebra and trigonometry. Examples of typical minimum math requirements can be found on our webpage.
