NDT Communities on Social Media

The NDT Community

With an estimated 60,000 NDT professionals working within the United States, the community is small but close-knit. Online communities are a great place to ask questions about different NDT tools and methods, get a feel for the job market in different regions and industries, seek advice about how to develop your NDT career and swap stories about your experiences on and off the job.

Check out some of the online communities below and get involved. While you're there, we'd love it if you could help spread the word about the NDT Education Center here on NDT Tool HQ.
