Interpret the results of all methods of non-destructive testing (NDT) such as acoustic emission, electromagnetic, leak, liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, neutron radiographic, radiographic, thermal or infrared, ultrasonic, vibration analysis, and visual testing.
Select, calibrate, or operate equipment used in the non-destructive testing (NDT) of products or materials.
Examine structures or vehicles such as aircraft, trains, nuclear reactors, bridges, dams, and pipelines using non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques.
Make radiographic images to detect flaws in objects while leaving objects intact.
Identify defects in solid materials using ultrasonic testing techniques.
Prepare reports on non-destructive testing (NDT) results.
Conduct liquid penetrant tests to locate surface cracks by coating objects with fluorescent dyes, cleaning excess penetrant, and applying developer.
Document non-destructive testing (NDT) methods, processes, or results.
Produce images of objects on film using radiographic techniques.
Visually examine materials, structures, or components using tools and equipment such as endoscopes, closed circuit television systems, and fiber optics for signs of corrosion, metal fatigue, cracks, or other flaws.
Supervise or direct the work of non-destructive testing (NDT) trainees or staff.
Map the presence of imperfections within objects using sonic measurements.
Develop or use new non-destructive testing (NDT) methods such as acoustic emission testing, leak testing, and thermal or infrared testing.
