*indicates CPD content

The Scottish Branch has a broad membership representing the aerospace, power generation, ship-building, petrochemical, offshore and heavy engineering industries, as well as university and corporate development, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, and service inspection companies.

Through this diverse range of interests the Branch is able to offer a programme of educational, informative and entertaining meetings, with a wide variety of topics presented by speakers who are experts in their fields. Branch meetings are held throughout the session from September to May, at venues throughout central Scotland. Our main event taking place on Friday 29th January is a 'Reliability of NDT' workshop.

The Branch actively promotes the NDT profession and the interests of its members. Committee members participate in the Engineering Council regional organisation, in the PCN scheme and NDT standards committees. There is a particular interest in Continuing Professional Development, which is relevant to NDT certificate holders, students, technicians and graduates alike.
