The demand for qualified personnel in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is continuously growing all over the world and especially in the South East Asia region. The certification of personnel is very important as NDT experts often make critical judgments that can have financial and safety-related consequences.

The SGS NDT Training and Examination Center provides training and examination of NDT technicians, managers and surveyors in accordance with recognized worldwide standards. SGS pays particular focus on the demand for Personnel Certification of NDT (PCN).

The Personnel Certification in Non-Destructive Testing (PCN) is an international scheme for the certification of NDT operators. Developed by the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing, PCN is the first fully accredited personnel certification scheme under EN473 and ISO 9712. PCN is not only setting industry standards in the UK; it is also playing a leading role within Europe and the rest of the world.

SGS NDT Training and Examination Center is currently conducting a range of PCN training courses and examinations in Shanghai and around the SE Asian region. In order to extend its services and to meet the increasing demand for PCN training and examinations, the SGS NDT Training and Examination Center has made additional major investments in specialized samples and equipment. With this investment, SGS is in a position to offer more PCN training courses as well as extend its services outside of Shanghai and even outside of China. The demand for SGS Training & Examination services has extended outside of mainland China to other regional countries such as Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Singapore, other countries in the Middle-East are also expressing an increased interest. The specialized samples and equipment also provide wider resources for the Center’s team and will provide more flexibility for it’s operations and clients.

Offering Training Services is a key part of SGS’ strategy to improve quality and safety around the globe. SGS trains and examines personnel to the highest inspection standards worldwide.
