The Conference Department of ASNT regularly organizes two major scientific and technical conferences around March and October each year.

ASNT manages a central certification scheme for Level III NDT professionals.


ASNT publishes and maintains an important standard, SNT-TC-1A, which, with the addition of Codes of Practice ANSI/ASNT CP-189 and ANSI/ASNT CP-105, covers all aspects of qualification and certification of NDT personnel. SNT-TC-1A specifies an employer based certification scheme for Level I and Level II NDT personnel, which is extensively used worldwide, in countries not enforcing ISO 9712 such as the European Union or Canada. The ASNT Central Certification Program (ACCP) is a fully accredited certification scheme that specifically complies with the ISO 9712 Standard.
