To meet the successful completion criteria for training, as defined by NRCan (Certifying Body), a combination of both theoretical knowledge and practical hands on training is required but it is not always feasible for students to attend traditional inclass training. To accommodate our client's needs while still meeting the NRCan requirements, CINDE has designed a Blended Learning approach to training which combines both online digital media training with a live proctored final exam for the delivery of the NDT theory, paired with traditional classroom methods to meet the practical hands-on component. We recommend that you do your final exam after the practical session so that both theory and practical can be 'blended' for the best overall learning experience. This course is offered in partnership with Canadian Institute for Non-Destructive Evaluation (CINDE).
