NDT is an engineering science-based role where Engineers inspect materials, welds, components and other parts of plant to verify their integrity, whilst ensuring they are still fit for further service.
Working in the Inspection Group, you’ll learn to take a lead role in the development and application of the NDT techniques undertaken on our nuclear power stations. The role is operationally focussed and will include the use of automated and manual inspection systems.
On the apprenticeship, you’ll develop the skills to:
Carry out NDT in all methods in support of our plant
Manage manual and automated NDT both during and outside of outage periods
Development and application of specialised and automated NDT methods
Generic and Strategic NDT development
