COLUMBUS, OH - The American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) is excited to announce Marybeth Miceli as the host of the new ASNT Learn webinar series, Innovation in NDT.
Industry veteran Miceli is world renowned for her more than 25 years of experience in nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and testing (NDT) in civil infrastructure. Having previously organized webinars for The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Transportation Research Board, she understands the accessibility webinars provide over other learning opportunities and its timeliness for the NDT community.
“We often work at odd hours and can be asked to work on an emergency basis. Less predictable schedules make travel to conferences difficult sometimes. We are meeting people where they are; which, given the number of people who are in NDT vs. the number of people who can attend the conferences, this is very exciting to reach such a huge number of NDT professionals who previously have not had access to this type of informational exchange.”
“The Innovation in NDT webinar series is a real step forward for the industry and for ASNT. It will greatly expand the way ASNT disseminates information to professionals from every sector and from every stage in their career and allow them to see the innovations being put to use in industry,” Miceli remarked on potential impact of the webinars.
Miceli has been active volunteer of ASNT for more than 20 years. Her desire to elevate the voice of the membership has led to her roles in various ASNT committees and councils including installation as the current Chair of the Women in NDT committee. In 2019, she completed her second 3-year term on the ASNT Board of Directors.
The Innovation in NDT webinar series kicks off on Thursday, February 27 at 1 PM ET with the topic “Humanlike Robots as Artificial Inspectors - The Science Fiction and Engineering Reality.” For registration and pricing information, visit asnt.org/webinars.

ASNT Provides ISQ Industry Feedback and Gap Analysis
8 April 2022
The ASNT Industry Sector Qualification – Oil & Gas (ISQ – O&G) program is one of many programs that ASNT provides to demonstrate technician capabilities and competency to the NDT industry. As part of the ISQ program, ASNT has compiled feedback on gaps identified from exam pass/fail results and reporting. The document—ISQ Industry Feedback and Gap Analysis—highlights observations and recommendations based on statistical data from all exams since the exam rollout in 2019.
This is the first industry qualification exam analysis provided to the industry. The intent is to focus ultrasonic testing (UT) trainers and service providers on identifying gaps in the training of UT technicians and helping improve the quality of NDT.
