Radiographers, inspectors, engineers and surveyors.



Weld defects and their components, viewing conditions, identification of radiographs, spurious indications and film artefacts, appreciation of radiographic principles and parameters of interpretation; standards for radiographic practice, interpretation tutorial, acceptance criteria.


The course ends with the certification examination.


Training in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9712.


  • To list radiographic techniques
  • To state origins of defects
  • To recognise and differentiate between film artefacts and defect indications
  • To interpret radiographs
  • To meet the syllabus for CSWIP/PCN Level 2


    It is essential that course attendees have a good knowledge of radiographic theory and it is strongly recommended that those without that knowledge attend the Radiographic Interpretation (Part A) course.


    If you have a good understanding of the RT theory or a Radiographic Testing qualification, a distance learning package is available (at additional cost) to carry out 16 hours of self study to meet the 56 training hour requirement of the certification schemes, before attending the Radiographic Interpretation course NDT2B. Please contact the training centre in advance if selecting this training option.


    An assessment of theoretical Radiographic Testing (RT) knowledge will be taken on the first day of the course, but only minimal theoretical RT training will be provided during the Rad Interp course (NDT2B)


    Please note, previous experience of reading radiographs WILL NOT satisfy this knowledge requirement. If you do not have a thorough understanding of Radiographic Testing theory, it is strongly recommended that you attend the preparation course NDT2A, before taking the Radiographic Interpretation course NDT2B.



    All candidates attending a PCN examination (initial, retest or renewal) must provide photo ID (e.g Driving licence number, Passport number, PCN ID Card) on the day of sitting the examination. Failure to do so will result in the candidate being turned away.



    No mandatory course entry requirements.


    The minimum required duration of training, which includes both theoretical and practical elements, is:

  • Level 1 - not applicable
  • Level 2 - 56 hours

    The training hours requirement is fulfilled when candidates attend one of TWI's training courses.



    The minimum duration for experience prior to or following success in the qualification examination is:

  • Level 1 - not applicable
  • Level 2 - 6 months
