AIA NAS410 rev 4 Webinar

Revised Certification and Qualification Requirements for Non-destructive Test Personnel

Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a critical commodity for military and commercial aviation and other industries for detection of potential defects, cracks and other irregularities of virtually every part of the aircraft from the outer structures to the core airframe and propulsion systems.

NAS410 is a global, cornerstone standard for necessary qualification and certification of NDT personnel, and complete revisions to this standard will impact the aerospace industry. A complete revision of NAS410 was published in December 2014 and is available exclusively from IHS. Subscription customers are alerted and automatically receive revision 4.

A 1-hour webcast highlighting the changes in NAS410 was held on January 15, 2015.  A recording of the webcast is available here.

The webcast covered new requirements for:

  • non-film radiography examination
  • level 3 certification
  • effectivity, transition and experience hours
  • NANDTBs  (national aerospace non-destructive testing boards)
  • maintaining certification
