Why Consider a Career in Non Destructive Testing?
One of the most important choices we make in life is our vocation. What will I spend my life doing? Will I be able to support my family and myself? Some people make this decision at a very young age and relentlessly pursue their goal. For most people, however, it is less obvious and determined over the course of time.
Having a career provides a foundation to life and helps you grow as a person. It is something to be proud of, and nurture. You will likely spend as much, or more time, pursuing your work as you will with family and other activities so it is important that you choose something you enjoy and find fulfilling.
A growing career
If you are interested in using your hands as well as your mind in a dynamic industry, Non Destructive Testing (NDT) may be for you. The National Science Foundation says this about careers in NDT:
“NDT plays a big role in keeping our world safe and is used to test many of the things that you come in contact with everyday. Nondestructive testing means parts and materials are tested or inspected without causing damage to them. NDT methods are used to make sure that important parts on airplanes, trains, and automobiles are free of defects that could lead to an accident. NDT is also used in many other industries to make sure that parts do not have defects that would lead to unhappy customers. As a career field, non destructive testing offers many opportunities, and there is a big demand for technicians and engineers trained in NDT.”
Because of the high demand and low supply of certified NDT technicians, the National Science Foundation has funded a very informative web site that explains what NDT is all about and what career opportunities there are for you. You can visit the site at www.ndt-ed.org to find information on:

- NDT use in the Aircraft Industry

The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (www.asnt.org) web site has more information on careers in NDT including a short video.
