SNT-TC-1A NDT CERTIFICATION
In addition to providing ISO9712 Certified Technicians, we have developed and maintain an ASNT SNT-TC1A Written Practice which allows Training, Examination and Certification of NDT personnel in many different NDT methods to Level 1, 2 or 3.
This Certification is sometimes called for by Clients (in preference to IO9712) and also requires our Technicians to be examined to work strictly to Company approved in-house procedures.
The ABEN Technical Services Written Practice has been audited by Lloyds Register and found to be compliant with the SNT-TC-1A and ASME requirements.
Staff provide their services and industry commitment through continual representation on numerous committees of Industry Associations, Societies and Institutes, together with leading technology presentations at conferences and seminars.
As regular presenters to Clients and introducing new test methods, systems and certification schemes we allow them to understand new applications and where they could be utilised.
