Ultrasonics Level 1 Blended Learning Practical

NDT Blended Learning Program

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 Blended Learning approach provides:

  • Access to training anywhere, anytime, at your own pace
  • Meets the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) NDT Certifying Body’s training requirements
  • Offers the opportunity to complete a practical lab (scheduled by the student) to meet the NRCan practical hands on component
  • Provides quizzes to monitor student progress
  • Access to CGSB certified instructors
  • Certificate of successful completion
