Non-Destructive Testing Program
Color 35mm slide images of the Non-Destructive Training (NDT) Program at SLCC in the mid-1990s. Non-destructive testing involves the examination of an object in any manner that will not impair its future usefulness. The six major NDT methods, radiography, ultrasonics, eddy current, magnetic particle, liquid penetrant, and visual inspection, are used in a variety of industries including aerospace, petro-chemical, automotive, metals, non-metals, nuclear, marine, electronics, construction, aircraft, materials joining, utilities and many others. Students learn to perform the basic testing techniques on both metals and non-metals, such as synthetics and composites, as well as how to evaluate results and write final reports.
SLCC freshman and private pilot Barbara Reams is pursuing her aviation maintenance degree; she hopes by being a pilot as well as a technician, she will be able to better communicate with pilots about aircraft repairs.
