TECHNICAL TRAINING FOR INDUSTRIAL RADIOGRAPHERS. FINAL REPORT.
BEARDEN, H.D.
TO OFFSET THE PROBLEM OF A SHORTAGE OF QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS TO SERVE AS RADIOGRAPHERS IN INDUSTRY, 19 STUDENTS WERE TRAINED IN TWO CLASSES, THE FIRST CONSISTING OF 19, AND THE SECOND OF EIGHTEEN 30-HOUR WEEKS. ORGANIZED FORMAL OR LECTURE-TYPE INSTRUCTION WAS PRESENTED IN SOME SUBJECT AREAS, BUT THE MAJOR EMPHASIS WAS ON LABORATORY EXPERIENCES INCLUDING PREPARING SAMPLES, RADIOGRAPHING EITHER WITH X-RAY OR RADIOISOTOPES, DEVELOPING FILM, AND INTERPRETING RESULTS AS REQUIRED OF LICENSED RADIOGRAPHER PERSONNEL. CLASSROOM AND LABORATORY EXPERIENCES WERE SUPPLEMENTED BY VISITS TO COMMERCIAL TESTING LABORATORIES, FOUNDRIES, AND STEEL FABRICATORS. TESTS, ORAL, WRITTEN, HANDS-ON OPERATIONAL, OR SPECIAL, WERE GIVEN PERIODICALLY. TOWARD THE END OF THE COURSE, A SERIES OF TESTS AND VALIDATED PERFORMANCE TRIALS WAS ADMINISTERED FOR QUALIFYING THE STUDENTS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF INDUSTRY. ALL GRADUATES WERE OFFERED JOBS IN THE FIELD OF RADIOGRAPHIC INSPECTION. THE LESSON PLANS AND RELATED INFORMATION DATA WERE DEVELOPED IN ROUGH OR BASIC FORM DURING THE FIRST COURSE AND USED, TESTED, AND IMPROVED IN THE SECOND COURSE. AFTER THIS TRIAL AND MODIFICATION, THE LESSON PLANS AND RELATED MATERIALS WERE COMPILED, EDITED, AND ORGANIZED INTO TWO INSTRUCTOR'S GUIDES. THESE GUIDES ARE AVAILABLE AS VT 003 503 AND VT 003 565.
