What is ASNT certification?

ASNT certification is a credential provided by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing to NDT technicians. This certification verifies that an individual is competent in non-destructive testing. Currently, there are four certification programs. These include:

  • • ASNT NDT Level III
  • • ASNT Central Certification Program (ACCP)
  • • ASNT NDT Level II
  • • Industrial Radiography and Radiation Safety Personnel (IRRSP)
All non-destructive testing technicians in Canada are required to be certified by an accredited institutional body. The list of accredited organizations for Canadian NDT technicians includes the American Society for Nondestructive Testing, as well as Canada’s National Non-Destructive Testing Certification Body, the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB), the Personal Certification Network (PCN) and the Certification Scheme for Welding Inspection Personnel (CSWIP).
