Should you require any further guidance on any of the points mentioned in this paper please contact Lavender International NDT Ltd.

So basically there’s no requirement from ASNT to use one system over the other because that decision is up to the contractor to make asmt the subcontractor to follow The PdM certification and all of either have very few references and information for this certification.

When is CP required?

Employers may simultaneously put both programs in place within their businesses. Arizona – Section Rochester – Section SNT-TC-1A outlines recommended requirements for initial classroom training, on-the-job experience hours, and recommendations for the general, specific and asny examinations.

Clear as Oktoberfest Beer eh? North Florida – Section SNT-TC-1A is not a mandatory standard or code but rather is an employer-based program with recommended guidelines for initial training, experience and testing of NDE personnel for qualification and certification. I concur Al, Here’s an interesting xsnt covering both the guidelines and the standard: CP adds certification levels of trainee and instructor.

I’m only asking because it seems silly to even reference the certification if they don’t have any specific qualifications and also I wan’t to know as much as possible since it may come up on the Level III basic exam. Surely by virtue of demonstrating continuous performance by an internal or external means of assessment, automatically achieves traceability and quantification.


Not all code or standards require certification but how else do you assess the competence of test personnel? The downside is that the employer-based program is often abused, resulting in a lower level of achievement than what the program had intended. The document intends that employers will create their own programs based on their business streams and needs by developing a written practice.

I tried to do some research on here and other places but I couldn’t find anything which states CP was required except in some NRC documents and random employers written practice. Of course, the most fundamental difference to remember is that CP is a standard that details minimum requirements, while SNT-TC-1A is a set of recommendations for an employer-based program. But this approach is little short of the certification asnr advocated by cpp as costly and unnecessary.

A brief list of some of the major differences below: Best regards – Al. Oh btw, this is from the February issue of Quality Magazine: CP also requires that the candidate prepare a test procedure as part of the practical examination.

ASNT CP-105-2016

The CP outlines five levels of certification rather than three. My question is what are the requirements for PdM since either don’t have any formal training or experience hour requirement. Nebraska – Section It differs significantly in several areas. For an individual to become certified in multiple test methods, each method must be represented by method-specific training, experience and examinations.


However, the owner, customer should be aware of the differences between a set of recommended guidelines and an actual ANSI approved by consensus American National standard in order to make the right choice in choosing between the 2 parallel certification schemes offered by ASNT Although both 15 to certification have attributes and detriments they do ensure adequate coverage of all industrial needs with flexible options to address specific requirements.

Florida West Coast – Section As to where it is used, well that is dictated by client and contract specifications I would guess, but most likely boiler and pressure vessel type fabrications!

Sounds like there may not be a specific code or standard that requires it other then customer may require it. Each category specifies visual applications and is available at levels 1 or 2 with specific criteria pertaining to eligibility of trainers and prospective level 3 persons. When a company decides to follow CPthey must accept all the requirements of that standard, with little or no adjustment or leeway and the relevant training requirements!

Another difference is in the visual acuity exams: Not logged in American Welding Society Forum. This certification meets the requirements for the basic and method specific examination, leaving only aent practical examination to be administered by the employer.
