    Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a critical commodity for military and commercial aviation and other industries for detection of potential defects, cracks and other irregularities of virtually every part of the aircraft from the outer structures to the core airframe and propulsion systems.

    NAS410 is a global, cornerstone standard for necessary qualification and certification of NDT personnel, and complete revisions to this standard will impact the aerospace industry. A complete revision of NAS410 is currently scheduled for a December 2014 release date.
