Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Non-Destructive Testing (also referred to as Non-Destructive Evaluation - NDE) is the process through which materials and systems are evaluated without causing damage to the item being tested. Inspections and testing processes directly affect the safety of others and the environment in which we live and work. With desire for heightened safety and environmental awareness, the demand for NDT and its technology continue to grow.

NAIT's NDT CGSB (Canadian General Standards Board) approved programming offers a full spectrum of courses, course bundles, and workshops to help you begin and grow within your chosen career.

NAIT is recognized by NRCan (Natural Resources Canada) as a Recognized Training Organization (RTO) and Authorized Examination Centre (AEC) NAIT's NDT Test Centre provides up to date equipment on which to practice and test.
