    • Course Content:
    • • This course designed for personnel responsible for judging the quality of radiograph and reaching informed decisions regarding the identity and extent of the defects revealed.
    • • Training in radiographic interpretation provides essential knowledge on radiographic theory and practice to enable interpreters to judge radiographic quality and practical interpretation of welds and castings respectively.
    • • Principles of X- and gamma-radiography; equipment; safety; selection of films and screens; exposure; processing; characteristics of the image; choice of technique; relevant standards; sensitivity, factors affecting the quality of radiographs.
    • • The course ends with the certificate examination.
