Professional Development as a Component of System Approach to Rails Quality Testing Improvement

A. A. Markov, S. L. Molotkov, M. O. Mironov

An operator is one of the most important elements of the complex “flaw detector–operator–environment”. The article justifies the necessity of training and periodical professional development of NDT specialists; it is shown by the example of the Scientific and Technical NDT Centre “Radioavionica”. High-level specialists of “Radioavionica” act as trainers; they use modern training equipment in order to teach the trainees how to use the latest NDT instruments and apply new knowledge when making decisions about detected defects. In 2015 49 people passed the stiff examination and became qualified specialists in the field of NDT of rails. The training process at “Radioavionica” is a component of the system approach to developing, manufacturing and implementation of instruments for NDT of rails.
 
Keywords: non-destructive testing, rail ultrasonic testing, training and professional development of specialists
