Non-destructive testing or defectoscopy (from Latin defectus – a defect and from Greek skopeo — to watch) is a range of non-destructive testing methods and means applied to materials and products in order to detect various defects in them.

Non-destructive testing helps to reveal structural discontinuities or heterogeneities, areas damaged by corrosion, or deviations in chemical composition, size, etc.

Non-destructive testing methods allow the internal or external condition of materials, parts or structures to be assessed without damage or operational disruptions.

Non-destructive testing courses

Non-destructive testing. Visual testing (VT)

Target audience:
