What is SNT-TC-1A certification?

SNT-TC-1A was developed by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT). SNT-TC-1A is a recommended practice that helps NDT companies set minimum requirements for in-house NDT certification. Since SNT-TC-1A is a recommendation, rather than a standard practice, it gives NDT services providers the ability to determine appropriate requirements for NDT technicians. Buffalo Inspection Services requires NDT technicians to complete an SNT exam. However, to ensure quality NDT inspections in Canada, Buffalo prefers technicians have a minimum of CGSB (Canadian General Standards Board), PCN (Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing), CSWIP (Certification Scheme for Personnel) and/or ACCP (ASNT Central Certification Program) credentials.
