When industry, (wherever in the world it may be) adopts credible training, certification and technologies through ASNT, its individual members and corporate partners will benefit from gaining more job opportunities and market reach for their services and products, respectively.   ASNT is here to develop the NDT industry throughout the Gulf region: By organizing and managing the NDT profession - Through much sought-after training and certification programs - Through technology transfer, both ways, by distributing new technologies throughout its globally chartered sections to international markets as well as gaining some benefit back from field trials in different environments worldwide - Through Regional Conferencing such as this GNDT EXPO 2018, where ASNT can partner directly with local NDT interests.
