Radiographic Testing (RT) Level-I

Training Course objective

To provide a basic knowledge of RT to enable a participant to carryout tests according to an established procedure under the supervision of a level II or level III personnel. The course is especially designed to provide a sound theoretical knowledge and practical skill for RT required for a Level I technician

RT Level I Responsibilities

To carryout operation as per written procedure/instruction from Level II personnel. He shall be able to set up the carryout the tests as per established and approved RT procedures, classify, report the results and to follow safety norms. He shall not be responsible for the choice of the test technique nor for assessment of the test results.
