Retraining is based on government regulations for professional training as a materials tester, and focuses on metals. Materials testers achieve six certificates recognised across Europe for major non-destructive materials testing methods according to DIN EN ISO 9712 in addition to a professional chamber of commerce certificate.
These include visual inspection, radiographic inspection, ultrasonic testing, penetration testing, magnetic particle testing and radiation protection.
The wide-ranging qualification secures a wide range of usable expertise in various sectors of the economy such as automotive engineering, steel, equipment, pipeline and tank construction, hardening shops and foundries, and the chemical industry.
