1st Annual Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Competition

3-5 September 2024
The International Centre, Telford, UK 



The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is pleased to announce the launch of the 1st Annual Ultrasonic Testing (UT) Competition, which will take place on the 3 and 4 September 2024 at the International Centre, Telford, UK. The competition will be held on Stand E15 at the Materials Testing 2024 (MT 2024) exhibition and alongside NDT 2024, the Annual Conference of BINDT.

The competition will assess the general UT skills for two sets of contestants, NDT UT Level 2 technicians and NDT UT Level 3 technicians. The tournament will follow a ‘knockout’ system whereby contestants will have playoffs until one is crowned the victor. A draw will take place in August featuring all selected competitors and will be released on the BINDT social media channels. The application submission deadline is Friday 2 August 2024.

A significant cash prize will be awarded to the winner of each draw. The grand final winners will be announced at the NDT 2024 Conference awards dinner with a further prize available.

After the competition applications are approved, all participants will be sent a link to complete conference registration. If you are only attending the annual conference to participate in the UT competition, you will be issued a complimentary exhibition hall pass. A discounted ticket for the Wednesday evening awards dinner will also be provided to competition entrants.

Participant guidelines
Level 2 technicians must have a current PCN level 2 welds qualification.
