Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

This course provides detailed theoretical and practical information on all the commonly encountered magnetic particle testing techniques. Candidates will have the opportunity to use a large variety of equipment on welds, castings and wrought products.

This course is orientated towards candidate NDT inspectors.



  • Properties of magnetic fields
  • Principles of magnetic particle inspections
  • Magnetic particle inspection equipment
  • Equipment Calibration
  • Defect detection and evaluation


  • Acquaintance with the relevant equipment (electormagnets, yokes, powders, fluorescent inks)
  • Testing of several training samples with artificial and natural discontinuities
  • Location and assessment of discontinuities
  • Report
  • Extensive hands-on practical element
  • Relevant standards
  • Material technology


Upon completion of the training the participants can attend the exam for certification according to ISO 9712 and SNT-TC-1A.

Examinations are held in two stages, including written and practical. After the written exam is performed to calibrate the device with different probes and discontinues are determined on samples and the preparation of the acceptance report.

Providing sufficient success in the exam then awarded certificates.
