Non-Destructive Testing Online Courses

The online format of D2L will give students the opportunity to discuss important issues, access websites and review materials covered in the course. These courses are the first part of the required 40 hours of training per the NRCan guidelines or industry regulatory groups. For some NDT online courses, to be certified under the CGSB certification scheme, students will need to take the 16-hour hands-on lab component separately.

Non-Destructive Testing Labs and Workshops


These labs are the practical component to the on-line learning portion of the required 40-hour courses in NDT as per the NRCan guidelines. To be certified under the CGSB certification scheme, students must have already taken the 24-hour on-line component. These labs are assessed and the student will be given an attestation of successful completion.


These workshops are intended to prepare students for their CGSB certification exams using the same type of equipment they will be tested on. These workshops also can be used as on-the-job training for a 1:5 ratio for application purposes.
