NDT Specialist Staff
NDT technologies are only as good as the people who employ them to uncover what can’t be seen by the naked eye. Our confidence in the results is a product of the years of experience and training our NDT specialists have under their belts. In addition to in house certification, all of our NDT technicians are certified to the national CAN-CGSB 48.9712 standard through Natural Resources Canada in PT, MT ET and UT.
