CGSB - Eddy Current Testing Level 2 - C221

The Eclipse ET Level 2 course continues to build on the strong fundamentals gained from our ET Level 1 course. PowerPoint presentations, handout material, exercises and examinations are all part of the training program. More complicated solutions are required of the student in order to solve the more difficult flaw samples they will encounter in the ET Level 2 practical workshops. A wide range of NDT instrumentation ensures an exposure to different inspection instruments currently used in our industry. Eclipse workstation setups, numerous practical fixtures, encoding devices and NDT tools for a variety of inspection applications, expose students to what they might encounter on a job. This program meets the training requirements of CAN/CGSB ISO9712.
The benefit to the employer will be significant, as the graduate of this course will be capable of analyzing, solving and reporting clear comprehensive findings for many NDT/NDE applications.


  • Advanced theory of eddy current
  • Types of sensing elements
  • Test material characteristics
  • Factors which affect coil impedance
  • Field strength and frequency selection
  • Eddy current inspection techniques
  • Eddy current testing equipment
  • Eddy current calibration standards

Students attending this course in preparation for CGSB certification must successfully complete an NRCAN-recognized basic math-skills test, and obtain CGSB Level 1 certification in Eddy Current Testing prior to attending the course.


10 days (80 hours)

50% classroom, 40% hands-on, 10% testing 

Course Equipment and Materials:

The wide range of samples includes conductivity sample sets, and aircraft component samples for surface inspection, including aircraft wheel crack samples. High-end multi-frequency eddy current instruments are used on this course and many software programs available on the market today will be accessed. Eddy current probes cover the full range available to the industry, including absolute and differential bobbin probes for tubing, array surface probes for crack detection, probes for subsurface corrosion and cracking, surface inspection probes, conductivity sorting/heat treat probes, and ferrous weld inspection probes.
