Vibrant engineer Richard Livings PhD was awarded certification from the American Society of Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) for Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Level III in Ultrasonic Testing (UT). The certification establishes Dr. Livings as an authority on the configuration and application of UT inspections. In addition to creating and applying PCRT solutions, he can now assist Vibrant in performing UT inspections and interpreting results. His comprehensive knowledge will also allow him to help better integrate PCRT into established NDT process flows.
“I congratulate Richard on earning his UT Level III, and look forward to him putting his new skills to use for Vibrant,” said Vibrant Engineering Manager Eric Biedermann. “We can learn a lot from the complementary application of PCRT and other NDT methods. At the same time a broader base of NDT experience helps us better communicate with our customers. Richard’s UT expertise will be a great asset in both areas.”
