NADCAP AC7114 Non Destructive Testing Requirements Introduction

Course Duration: 2 Days - 8 Hours/day

This two-day seminar is designed to provide participants with an understanding of NADCAP AC7114 Non-Destructive Testing requirements and process validation for Aerospace. Understanding these requirements will help ensure successful implementation based on robust processes, as well as how to employ, audit and manage continual improvement in all non-destructive testing processes. Each AC7114 checklist will be interpreted, discussed and thoroughly examined to accommodate attendees performing individual or multiple types of non-destructive testing methods.

This seminar also provides guidance on effective methods to prepare for third party audits as well as to perform effective internal audits of non-destructive testing processes, by showing where and when to incorporate prevention tools and continual improvement strategies. This class also provides a comprehensive overview of the overall AC7114 suite of checklists.

AC7114 is required by most aerospace customers to be integrated with AS9100D clause 8.0 and is considered a special process.
