What do NDT inspectors do?

NDT inspectors use tools and technology to evaluate materials and assets for flaws, defects and damage. NDT inspection specialists have an in-depth understanding of materials, corrosion and operating equipment. This allows them to recognize potential problems. These inspectors work in many different industries, including oil and gas, pipeline, mining, construction and more. Non-destructive testing specialists require attention to detail and problem-solving skills, in addition to good vision and the ability to differentiate between colours, including shade and brightness. Advanced inspection techniques are also required in some circumstances. In such cases, NDT inspectors may need to have additional specialized skills. For example, when rope access is the only option for inspection, NDT technicians providing this testing are required to have advanced mountain climbing training.
