I have been asked this question many times. Below is an example of one guy asking this question.
What do you think about NDT carrer and would you go different path if you had an option?
Hi all, I graduated in 2017 with a BENG in Mechanical Engineering, since then I have worked in finance as it was the first job I was able to get out of university. I’m 26 and I have realised that life is too short to waste years on a career in something I’m not passionate about. I heard about NDT whilst exploring jobs that would allow me to use my degree and eventually go down the rope access route. It would be great to hear some opinions on: Would my degree be useful in an NDT career? Would NDT allow for travelling/working abroad? What kind of salary would you expect for someone at entry level up through level 1, 2 and 3? Does NDT work require you to be away from home for long periods of time? What does a typical day in the life of an NDT technician consist of? Any other advice or pointers would be much appreciated. Thanks Scott
