Advancing the theory of ultrasound into the next generation. Designed to meet and exceed the ISO 18436-part 8 CAT 1 ASU outline and ASNT SNT-TC-1A Level 2 recommended practices, this course teaches students about the principles of Ultrasound, Ultrasound Devices, and the use of Sound Analysis Software to determine previously unknown fault conditions that other courses couldn’t identify.

The student will be immersed in a Learner & Instructor Centered, Content Focused, Lecture Methodology that is proven to deliver through the use of self-paced video modules. Students will learn about the science of Ultrasound, the various applications for CBM based reliability, increase mean time between failure, and a decrease total cost of asset when the principles learned in the class are applied at the students site.


1.    It is recommended that the student have 420 hours of operational use Ultrasound

2.    For completion of assignments, student will need access to an Ultrasound device and sound analysis software.
