QCC 200 - Magnetic Particle Level 2

Course Description:

QCC 200 is designed to introduce the student to the Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) method within the Non-destructive Examination (NDE) industry. Knowledge of magnetic particle inspection is considered fundamental to the inspection of surface and near-surface discontinuities. The course covers an introduction to basic principles and applications of MPI through a series of lectures and labs. The course will cover both the theoretical and practical components necessary to meet the requirements of NRCan and CAN/CGSB-48.9712.
