Sign up for the radiographic testing course for levels I and  II with ASNT NDT Classroom.
Radiographic Testing Course
Radiography Testing (RT) Level I is a foundational course necessary for anyone seeking Level I certification. It addresses the required training by documents controlling the certification program, such as NAS-410, SNT-TC-1A, and NAVSEA Technical Publication T9074-AS-GIB-010/271. Course content conforms to the training subjects listed in ANSI/ASNT CP-105, Standard Topical Outlines for Qualification of Nondestructive Testing Personnel. Follow up the Level I course by taking the Level II course. When combined with laboratory-type hands-on training under the direction of a Level II or Level III, the course will meet the total hours of training required by the applicable certification document listed above. Both training courses meet most certification documents for RT Level I and II, such as SNT-TC-1A, and encompass the subject matter listed in ANSI/ASNT CP-105 for radiographic testing certification.
