Certifications are used to demonstrate a person’s competence against set criteria.
AINDT is the Australian National Certification Body, providing certification in accordance with AS ISO 9712 and ISO 18436. This means that if you become certified through AINDT, you will receive a certification that verifies that you have fulfilled the requirements of those relevant standards.
Certifications like those issued by AINDT have expiry dates. AINDT certifications expire after 5 years, thereby requiring you to re-certify and demonstrate your ongoing competence.
How to get your certification
With AINDT the requirement varies slightly depending on what you are trying to become certified in, as specified in two guidelines published by AINDT called Guide to Qualification and Certification for NDT and CM. Below is a list outlining the requirements for NDT and CM certification:
- Successful completion of approved training
- Pass AINDT examinations Completion of a visual acuity test (applicable to NDT)
- Evidence of practical experience using the relevant method
- Completed certification application form
- Complete an interview (only applicable for CM, this is organised after you apply for certification)
Why become certified?
- Demonstrate your competence
- Have an independent body evaluate your competence
- Meet employer / client requirements
- Improve your profile and job prospects
