The Best Trade To Learn: Nondestructive Testing

Some of the best trades to learn are well known, but the booming industry of Nondestructive Testing (NDT) deserves more attention.  You’ve likely heard of opportunities for electricians, plumbers, construction managers, and heavy equipment mechanics. Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is a lucrative field in high demand across the United States. NDT ranks high as one of the best trades to learn, in terms of accessibility, training, and salary.

Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is the inspection and testing of materials and equipment without negatively affecting or destroying them during inspection, saving businesses time and money. NDT is the best trade to learn in terms of ensuring a safer world and reducing operational costs and material waste. This field is one of the more technical trades, but with the right training it is a straightforward process to become NDT certified.  

Vocational schools are a good fit for individuals who want to pursue NDT certification. Some NDT methods are as simple as visually inspecting a piece of equipment for faults.  Other NDT processes are more complex.  NDT radiography uses gamma rays or X-Rays to look through an object to find problems or defects.  Ultrasonic testing uses high-frequency sound waves to locate changes in the properties of a material.  NDT prevents accidents and reduces repair costs.  NDT is one of the best trades to learn that operates on efficiency and assures safer products are being used in our world.  

NDT applies to a variety of technology, methods, and industries including inspection throughout the construction and maintenance of:

  • Aircraft
  • Nuclear Facilities
  • Refineries
  • Trains and railways
  • Automobiles
  • Aerospace craft
  • Bridges
  • Pipelines

With infrastructure constantly aging, the demand for NDT technicians continues to increase. Skilled trades are vital to communities, and they serve an ongoing need that is always changing and adapting to fit new industry standards.  We don’t hear about planes that fly as they should or bridges standing securely because NDT technicians work to maintain and improve the standards of quality we’ve come to expect.
