Coverage of refresher courses

The NDT (ASNT) refresher courses are designed to help refresh and expand your knowledge of important concepts in each NDT topic. A thorough review of each subject’s Knowledge will give you an awareness of areas where further study is needed and are intended to supplement each candidate’s personal studies.

The subject matter for all of the courses is derived from the training topics found in the Level III Topical Outlines of Topical Outlines for Qualification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel, ANSI/ASNT CP-105, as referenced in Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A Personnel Qualification and Certification in Nondestructive Testing and ANSI/ASNT CP-189, ASNT Standard for Qualification and Certification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel. This is the same Body of Knowledge from which the ASNT NDT Level III exams are written.

Will the refresher courses help me pass the Level III ASNT exam?

The refresher courses are designed to help review and expand your knowledge of important NDT concepts and should not be used as the sole source of exam preparation. The courses may not possibly cover everything that may appear on the exam. However, many people do choose to take the refresher courses before the exams. The courses do offer dedicated study time away from work, the opportunity to interact with other students in NDT and learn from an experienced instructor so the courses may offer an advantage over someone who did not take a course before the exam. There is a section of referenced books that may be studied for the examination and not all of them are ASNT materials, and some cannot be purchased through ASNT. Also it gives exposure to examination point for discussion with the experienced qualified Level III Tutors.
