Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT) is used to reveal surface discontinuities and makes it easier to detect flaws than an unaided visual inspection. Liquid penetrant testing is one of the most widely used NDT methods. Its popularity can be attributed to two main factors: its relative ease of use and its flexibility. It can be used to inspect almost any material provided that its surface is not extremely rough or porous. Materials that are commonly inspected using this method include; metals, glass, many ceramic materials, rubber and plastics. Candidates must meet minimum academic and/or experience requirements established by ASNT. Candidates are required to pass the Basic, Method, Procedure Preparation, and Practical examinations.

An ACCP Professional Level III should also have general familiarity with other NDT methods. Industrial radiography involves exposing a test object to penetrating radiation so that the radiation passes through the object being inspected and a recording medium placed against the opposite side of that object. For thinner or less dense materials such as aluminum, electrically generated x-radiation (X-rays) are commonly used, and for thicker or denser materials, gamma radiation is generally used. Candidates must have a minimum of 4 years of experience in an assignment at least comparable to that of a Level II in the applicable NDT method(s). ASNT Central Certification Program Professional Level III certification candidates are required to pass Basic, Method, Procedure Preparation, and Practical examinations.

Renewal Period: 5 years

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT), ASNT Central Certification Program (ACCP) Professional Level III - Ultrasonic Testing (UT) certification is for professionals who have the skills and knowledge to establish techniques, interpret codes, standards, and specifications, designate the particular technique to be used, and to prepare or approve procedures and instructions. Ultrasonic testing (UT) uses the same principle as is used in naval SONAR and fish finders. Ultra-high frequency sound is introduced into the part being inspected and if the sound hits a material with a different acoustic impedance (density and acoustic velocity), some of the sound will reflect back to the sending unit and can be presented on a visual display. By knowing the speed of the sound through the part (the acoustic velocity) and the time required for the sound to return to the sending unit, the distance to the reflector (the indication with the different acoustic impedance) can be determined. Candidates must have a minimum of 4 years of experience in an assignment at least comparable to that of a Level II in the applicable NDT method(s). ASNT Central Certification Program Professional Level III certification candidates are required to pass Basic, Method, Procedure Preparation, and Practical examinations.

VT inspections may be by Direct Viewing, using line-of sight vision, or may be enhanced with the use of optical instruments such as magnifying glasses, mirrors, boroscopes, charge-coupled devices (CCDs) and computer-assisted viewing systems (Remote Viewing). Corrosion, misalignment of parts, physical damage and cracks are just some of the discontinuities that may be detected by visual examinations. Candidates must have a minimum of 4 years of experience in an assignment at least comparable to that of a Level II in the applicable NDT method(s). ASNT Central Certification Program Professional Level III certification candidates are required to pass Basic, Method, Procedure Preparation, and Practical examinations.
