ASNT CP-105-2016

For an individual to become certified in multiple test methods, each method must be represented by method-specific training, experience and examinations. Not all code or standards require certification but how else do you assess the competence of test personnel?

Qualification and certification of NDE personnel is a function of training, experience and examination and is based on the technology or test method. Written with the intent of becoming a national standard, CP offered an alternative to SNT-TC-1A with more rigid requirements, rather than guidelines. People who perform an audit of an NDE certification program are often not specialists in the field or are not thoroughly familiar with the original intent of the employer-based program.

Nebraska – Section I concur Al, Here’s an interesting synopsis covering both the guidelines and the standard: CP uses “shall ” throughout to emphasize a mandatory requirement”, whereas SNT – TC – lA uses the verb ” should” to emphasize a recommendation” In the early s, ASNT established a technical committee to set up guidelines for the qualification and certification of NDE testing personnel that employers could follow.

Employers may simultaneously put both programs in place within their businesses. Each category specifies visual applications and is available at levels 1 or 2 with specific criteria pertaining to eligibility of trainers and prospective level 3 persons.

SNT-TC-1A is not a mandatory standard or code but rather is an employer-based program with recommended guidelines for initial training, experience and testing of NDE personnel for qualification and certification.

Florida West Coast – Section Is this a quantifiable value or a misnomer of accuracy? This is reflected throughout the 2 documents by the choice of verbs used Both exist as parallel programs available for a contractor to specify and a sub contractor to adopt.

It differs significantly in several areas. Nevada – Section In that case it is a contractual obligation. So basically there’s no requirement from ASNT to use one system over the other aent that decision is up to the contractor to make and the subcontractor to follow Vision Requirements – The vision requirements for near vision acuity are more stringent in CP requiring acuity to read the Jaeger 1 instead of Jaegar 2. The document intends that employers will create their own programs based on their business streams and needs by developing a written practice.

However, the owner, customer should be aware of the differences between a set of recommended guidelines and an actual ANSI approved by consensus American National standard in order to make the right choice in choosing between the 2 parallel certification schemes offered by ASNT The ASNT Recommended Practice is used in many industries, including oil and gas, transportation, power plants, construction, bridge fabrication, and bridge inspection.

Although both routes to certification have attributes and detriments they do co adequate coverage of all industrial needs with flexible options to address specific requirements.

CP also requires that the candidate prepare a test procedure as part of the practical examination. Colorado – Section Again this is not a comprehensive list of the differences, but simply the “major” fundamental differences in the concepts But this approach is little short of the certification process advocated by many as costly and unnecessary.


My question is what are the requirements for PdM since either don’t have any formal training or experience hour requirement. By far the most important fundamental difference is in the concept that CP is a national standard and must be treated as a minimum requirement not simply a set of guidelines which may be altered Powered by mwForum 2. North Florida – Section By Date I’m only asking because it seems silly to even reference the certification if they don’t have any specific qualifications and also I wan’t to know as much as possible since it may come up on the Level III basic exam.

Of course, the most fundamental difference to remember is that CP is a standard that details minimum requirements, while SNT-TC-1A is a set of recommendations for an employer-based program. By ssbn Date Puget Sound Olympic – Section Additionally, ASNT does not have an audit function to assure that compliance to the intent of the document is met. Levels of qualification – There are 5 levels of qualification instead of 3 the additional 2 being “Instructor” and “Trainee”.

Arizona – Section Certification in accordance with EN and ISO is differs from those previous by classification as central certification in a similar vein to college examination bodies.

Surely by virtue of demonstrating continuous performance by an internal or external means of assessment, automatically achieves traceability and quantification.

However, Adnt requires a certification procedure rather than a written practice.
