A cost-effective alternative for managing NDT activities
What are ASNT Level III services?
Most chemical, oil and gas operations routinely require the services of technical personnel with extensive experience in nondestructive testing (NDT) or predictive maintenance, as verified by Level III Certification from the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT). Depending on the nature of an operation, typical ASNT Level III tasks and responsibilities can include:
Developing, implementing and auditing NDT programs and procedures
Hiring, training and supervising NDT staff and related personnel
Resolving NDT-related issues with employees and clients
Maintaining NDT documentation and other records as required
Consulting with management regarding NDT program particulars and potential improvements
However, hiring and managing suitably qualified personnel for these and other tasks may exceed the financial ability or requirements of many operations. In such cases, utilizing the ASNT Level III services of a qualified, third-party can provide a suitable, cost-effective alternative.
What are the advantages of outsourcing ASNT Level III services?
Qualified, third-party ASNT Level III consultants can provide an operation with the required expertise without the financial commitment required for a full-time employee. Independent ASNT Level III consultants also typically have broad expertise drawn from extensive experience working for a wide range of clients in a variety of settings and conditions. This expertise can provide operators with effective and timely solutions that are tailored to meet their specific NDT requirements.
