The PCN Scheme is an international program for the certification of competence of non-destructive testing personnel which satisfies the requirements of a number of European and international standard. There is a wide range of qualification examinations available within the Scheme, covering various NDT methods and techniques. Authorised Qualifying Bodies are independent organisations (see definition: "Authorised Qualifying Bodies") which have been audited against rigorous criteria prior to authorization, and which are subject to regular surveillance. Organisations anywhere in the world wishing to explore the possibility of being authorised to conduct PCN examinations are encouraged to discuss the potential for their involvement with BINDT Certification Services.

In order to become qualified following examination (minimum requirements to comply to BINDT e.g. 4 months practical experience for magnetic particle inspection) experience is required in each discipline you seek to attain, if no experience is held all you will receive is a results notice (this is not a qualification) This means you cannot sign off any reports until the practical experience has been gained, recorded and submitted to PCN for your certificate to be issued. Examination is of considerably higher difficulty because the knowledge of the subject must be greater and more in-depth questions may be asked. (Although everything will still be covered in the course).
