Practitioner Profile

Bradley Brandt

Bradley Brandt is the Lead NDT Specialist at Roush Yates Engines, which manufactures and supports engines for NASCAR and other racing organizations.

Before working in NDT, Bradley was a machinist by trade but decided to move on and finish getting an education. After researching programs offered by Central Piedmont Community College, NDT piqued his interest since he’s a hands-on type of person.

Although he says it was difficult to transition from a machinist to an NDT technician, he was excited to challenge himself and move to a different industry. His hard work paid off when, in 2017, an engine that had been inspected by Brandt and his team went on to win the Daytona 500.
