Very short wavelength electromagnetic radiation namely X-rays or gamma rays, will penetrate through solid media but will be partially absorbed by the medium. The amount of absorption which will occur will depend upon the density and thickness of the material and radiation passing through, and also the characteristic of the radiation. Strictly speaking, the term radiography implies a process in which an image is produced on film. 4.1 Radiographic testing level 1 Training Objectives This course is intended to provide the basic knowledge of industrial radiography to enable the technician to conduct radiographic inspection to established procedures under the supervision of level 2or 3personnel.The course includes hands on experience in the use of X-and gamma radiography and darkroom techniques.

Welder Certification Introduction A welder operators success depends upon staying up to date with the latest in welding and fabricating technologies and equipment, looking for cost-effective saving ideas and problem solving technologies. Before a welder does any production work, his employer needs some idea of the welders ability. Finding out that a welder is not capable after he has been hired or ruined production pieces, or welded on pieces where inspection might find substandard welds is neither economical nor responsible.
