CINDE Member Webinar Series

Date: November 17, 2020
Time: 12:00pm EST
Topic: The Art of Realistic Flawed Specimens – beyond notches and side drilled holes
Presenter: Ricky Morgan (FlawTech)

The concept of making flawed specimens seems simple at first thought. Anyone can make a bad weld or product. This is true in concept but making a flawed specimen with accurate dimensions with no distractors other than the intended flaws to gauge an NDT Technicians’ or the CWIs’ performance or ability to properly locate, size and dispatch said specimen to a specific code, procedure or industry standard is another thing all together.
For many years I have heard from inspectors how they fear taking practical exams and how hard it is to get practical experience. In this day and age, we are still experiencing only 50% passing rate on some of the standardized Industry Performance Demonstration Exams. Why is that?
I believe it is most likely linked to lack of adequate preparation. Just because you do it day in and day out doesn’t mean you don’t need a refresher prior to taking an exam.
I will discuss the advantages of having and using realistic flawed specimens to both train on and test with for a variety of industry sectors.
