Ultrasonic Testing of Welds to API RP 2X ( TKY JOINTS ) (Ultrasonic Applications, Level II C)

Course covering TKY weld examination per API RP 2X. Extensive practical on TKY welds shall be provided. Course includes detailed interpretation of API RP 2X. This is a progressive training
course and admission to Level IIC would require the candidate to pass Level II A and B. Participant should be able to carry out this work independently upon completion of this course.

The participant will be taught on the following with the help of UT equipment,reference
blocks and flawed TKY specimen and other accessories:
