30 May 2019

ASNT ISQ–Oil & Gas

What you need to know


Employers and industry professionals no longer have to recreate the wheel to assess and prove NDT competency for the Oil & Gas (O&G) industry. The Industry Sector Qualification (ISQ) provides a standardized expectation of competency in executing practical applications of specific techniques.

Examinations are hands-on performance demonstrations at designated Authorized Examination Centers (AECs). This limited launch includes only the Houston, TX area at this time.* CLICK HERE to view current examination location.

As the world’s preeminent society for NDT professionals and stakeholders, ASNT is well-positioned to bring this industry changing initiative to the O&G industry.

Thank you to the O&G industry sector partners who partipate in the steering committee which developed the ISQ program - Chevron, Aramco, BP, Colonial Pipeline, DuPont, EPRI, ExxonMobil, Flint Hills Resource, Marathon, Phillips 66, Shell, Sinclair Oil, and Valero

*Complete U.S. rollout is expected in late 2019. International rollout is expected in 2020.
