What Is NDT?


NDT is Non Destructive Testing and employs multiple methods for inspection of manufactured equipment. Industries utilizing NDT include Oil and Gas, Petrochemical, Refinery, Aerospace and Aviation and more.


Nondestructive Testing, NDT, utilizes advanced techniques to ensure product reliability without harming the product or hindering its future usefulness. Many different specific testing techniques are used, often in pairs for maximum benefit. Simply put, nondestructive testing technicians are the quality police of the fabrication and manufacturing industry.

Accurate and effective results are highly dependant on the individual technician's skills and qualifications. At JC3-NDT our main focus is ensuring you are equipped with these skills to enter your new career ready to make meaningful impact.
