Level 1 & Level 2 Training Outline

Course OverviewThe Level 2 Air borne and Structure Borne Ultrasound
Inspector’s course is also a two and a half day course which
provides a more complex look at the theoretical and
practical information covered in Level 1. The course
syllabus consists of topics that will provide a deeper
understanding of ultrasound properties, extend the
analytical and diagnostic capabilities of ultrasound
inspectors and introduce ultrasound recording, time
spectrum analysis and diagnostic principles. Trainees are
exposed to signal analysis topics and how they are applied
to regular ultrasound maintenance applications.Course Objectives
Exciting new topics

  • Signal Analysis

Analyze signals captured from mechanical and electrical
applications. Discover the best ways to combine multiple
technologies to get the most out of your predictive
maintenance program. Extend Ultrasonic measurement to
explore the possibilities with time spectrum analysis and
