Non-Destructive Testing Certifying Agency

The Non-Destructive Testing Personnel Certification Program

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), through the Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Certifying Agency at CanmetMATERIALS, administers the Canadian NDT Personnel Certification Program. Through this program, NRCan certifies individuals according to the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) Standard CAN/CGSB-48.9712-2006 (Non-Destructive Testing - Qualification and Certification of Personnel).

This certification program is administered at the federal level in order to provide the unbiased Canada-wide services required to implement a national program. To ensure that this objective is met, an Advisory Committee composed of individuals knowledgeable about NDT in Canada advises NRCan on the operation of this program.

NRCan examinations that lead to the issuance of internationally accepted certificates of competence are available at a number of test centres located in various parts of Canada.

The Non-Destructive Testing Certifying Agency

The NDT Certifying Agency is an independent certification body that offers a flexible and cost-effective method of satisfying the ISO 9712:2006 Standard (Non-Destructive Testing - Qualification and Certification of Personnel).

The NDT Certifying Agency also serves as the qualifying body for the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC)'s Certification of Exposure Device Operators (EDO) examination. The CNSC's EDO examination is conducted in the same manner as other NDT certification examinations, using the same network of test centres.
