Our courses cater to specific needs, offering specialized training for ISQ UT Thickness (UTT) and ISQ UT Shear Wave (UTSW).

About the ISQ UTT Prep Course

Our ISQ UTT Prep Course is meticulously crafted to prepare candidates for ultrasonic testing on various specimens and product forms, aligning with the thickness and corrosion scanning ISQ exam requirements. Participants engage with real or artificially induced discontinuities that mirror those found in the relevant industry sector, enhancing their ability to locate, interpret, and evaluate discontinuities. Through hands-on experience, candidates learn to document test results effectively in an environment that simulates actual testing conditions.

Registered ISQ UTT participants can take advantage of the option to borrow one of Evident's state-of-the-art Evident D798-SM transducers. This invaluable resource is available on a day-to-day basis and can be utilized during the onsite exam week. Transducer rentals are complimentary for registered and paid class attendees.
