ACCP Level II Examinations

Multi-part Examination

Successful ACCP Level II certification candidates must complete the following four examinations:

General Examination

The multiple choice Level II general exam covers the basics within a method as listed in SNT-TC-1A, latest edition. The general exam is the same for all sectors for any one method.

Specific Examination

The specific exam determines the certification sector. ASNT currently offers a specific examination for the General Inspection and Pressure Equipment sectors. This exam is also multiple choice.

Instruction Preparation Examination

In the instruction prep exam, candidates prepare NDT instructions to meet the requirements of a supplied code.

Practical Examination

The practical exam determines the certification technique. Candidates can choose one or several techniques within each method.

Level II Reference Materials for Exam Preparation
