Early Careers Branch

Institute Branches 

BINDT is pleased to announce that it has gone one step further in offering support to apprentices and anyone new to, or interested in, the fields of NDT, CM and SHM through the launch of an Early Careers Branch.

This Branch will provide information, advice and guidance to individuals in their early career, ultimately acting as a gateway into BINDT and the wider NDT community. Monthly presentations will be conducted to ensure a sustainable and welcoming entry route for anyone looking to progress in the NDT industry.

The Branch’s mission is three-fold:
  • To inspire future NDT, CM and SHM technicians and engineers by providing a fun and educational learning programme through informative presentations, question and answer discussions, social events and site visits (virtual and physical) targeted at an early careers audience.
  • To promote the NDT and associated industries by connecting with individuals across various sectors, attending events and celebrating success.
  • To develop individuals in their early careers from all disciplines and industries via the online/physical Branch meetings, events and membership structure.

The Branch is open to anyone of any age and location who is in their early career and looking to develop their knowledge and network.
