The emphasis in this module is on the possibility of discontinuity formation in welds, castings and forgings and the NDT methods used to detect these discontinuities. The probable location and shape of discontinuities should be understood with a background knowledge of the various processes. It is not intended that students should become proficient in any of the manufacturing processes.
Nil. However learners should be studying, or have completed, training, in the NDT method(s) for which certification is being sought.
