GE’s Eddy Current Testing Level I course, now utilizing the Menor EM flaw detector, teaches the fundamentals of eddy current testing. Students will learn the principles of the technology and application of the method. The course includes hands-on training and inspection of test parts with known defects. The basic concepts covered are: 

  • Introduction to eddy current testing physics and controlling principles
  • Electromagnetic theory related to generation of eddy currents
  • Material factors affecting eddy current fields
  • Impedance factors affecting eddy current fields
  • Properties of eddy currents
  • Types of eddy current probes and equipment
  • Selection of inspection parameters
  • Readout mechanisms for eddy current indications
  • Applications of eddy current testing

This 40-hour course meets or exceeds the requirements of SNT-TC-1A and NAS-410.
