Brookes Bell is recruiting two more NDT Technician Apprentices, local to the Liverpool office. Interviews are underway, with appointments expected shortly.
The new recruits will learn basic and complex scientific methods of materials testing, with a view to practicing advanced Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) in the field and working with Brookes Bell’s Senior Engineering Technicians and Inspection Engineers on technical projects in the UK and internationally.
The apprenticeships will last for 30 months in total with the candidates gaining ISO 9712 PCN Level 2 Certification in both basic and complex testing methods (equivalent to an advanced level 3 apprenticeship/A level passes). The work will span the marine, offshore, energy and petrochemical sectors and will encompass a range of theoretical and practical NDT methods, including liquid penetrant testing, visual testing or magnetic particle testing, ultrasonic thickness measurement, ultrasonic testing of welds, and eddy current testing (welds/tubes)
The successful individuals will be expected to maintain equipment, perform calibrations and record equipment functionality checks to ensure conformance to the relevant codes and standards. They will learn about ship construction and design as well as pressurised piping systems and plant.
Arron Jackaman, Senior Inspection Engineer says: “When I left school, I enrolled on an apprenticeship scheme - eighteen years later, I’ve worked all around the world, had my own consultancy and now I’m technical lead of the NDT team at Brookes Bell. Every day I am using my knowledge and experience to innovate and push the boundaries of Non-Destructive Testing. I cannot recommend these apprenticeships highly enough - it really is a steppingstone to a great career.”
