Overview

You can complement your Level I certification by attending one of UE System’s Level II Ultrasound courses.

This training will give students a deeper and more advanced knowledge about how Ultrasound technology can take a maintenance & reliability program to a world-class level.

These are 32-hour courses: 4 days of theory/practice and half day for the summary and the exam.

UE Systems’ Level II courses are in conformity with the requirements of the ASNT (American Society of Non-Destructive Testing) Recommended Practice, SNT-TC-1A and follows the guidelines of the ISO 18436-8, the standard for condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines.

General Topics

  • Sound Theory & Ultrasound principles;
  • Advanced Leak detection: pressure, vacuum, reporting & cost analysis, developing a compressed air program
  • Electrical Inspection: spectral analysis, developing an electrical inspection program
  • Valves Inspection: configure instruments, software for ABCD record keeping & reporting, review of compressor
  • Steam Traps: software for steam trap record keeping, data logging and stream cost analysis, review procedures
  • Bearings: monitoring, trending and lubrication, set up alarm groups and trend reports, bearing detection & lubrication programs
  • Student case history presentations

Requirements for Certification

  • Attend certification training and pass the General, Specific and Practical examinations with a score of 80% or better.
  • Documentation of education or experience must be maintained annually.
  • Hearing acuity must meet the minimum requirement of one ear of less than 25 dBHL at 500 Hz to 4 kHz (with or without aid.) Hearing acuity examinations must be documented annually.
  • Documented experience signed by a supervisor or superior for 6 months, additionally of the Level I experience of 6 months, for a cumulative 12 months’ experience to qualify for official certification of Level II.

Price
