The NDT Training Center (CIP-NDT)

The NDT training center was set up in 2002 in order to ensure the training needs for the NDT level 1 and level 2 operators in the NDT methods and processes used in AEROSTAR S.A Bacau. CIP-NDT operates in accordance with RACR-NDT regulations.

Due to the tehnical staff efforts, CIP-NDT has been authorised by Romanian Civil Aeronautical Authority to operate starting with 2003 (thus being the first NDT training center in the field of Romanian civil aviation).

Both the structure of the courses and the experience and knowledge of the instructors lead to the possibility of training the personnel in every industrial field for NDT tests (further to the level 2 or 3 NDT approval, the instructors also have the qualifications as a trainer).

Scope of approval:
