What is NRCan certification?
NRCan certification is necessary for all NDT technicians in Canada. NRCan, or Natural Resources Canada, is the governing organization that oversees the Non-Destructive Testing Certification Body (NDTCB). The NDTCB is the program in Canada that certifies all non-destructive testing technicians. Therefore, to perform NDT services in Canada, you must be certified by NRCan. The NRCan NDTCB provides a list of all certified NDT inspectors. This Directory of Certified Personnel provides the names and certification details for all inspectors certified in non-destructive testing. For NDT companies and technicians, this list is helpful, as it provides the date on which recertification is due. This can help technicians and NDT companies in Alberta ensure that NRCan certifications are up-to-date.
