In May 1981, the Society of Mechanical Engineering of China held the first non-destructive test personnel qualification training and certification course at Nanchang HangKong University, which has since pioneered the vocational training of non-destructive testpersons in China.
In September 1982, Nanchang HangKong University founded China's first non-destructive testing undergraduate major, and in July 1986, the first graduates went to work, thus creating a history of china's non-destructive testing education. The General Conference of the Chinese Society of Mechanical Engineering for Non-destructive Testing, which has made professional education and vocational training an important part of its work in the work of its previous professional conferences.
In 2001, under the guidance of the General Conference on Education and Training of Science and Technology and the Information Center of the Society for Non-destructive Testing, the "Shanghai SINAITE Non-destructive Testing Technology Training Center" (hereinafter referred to as the "SNT training Center") was established, which not only engaged in vocational training, but also became an experimental base for the standardization of vocational education. Education and vocational training are the two main ways to train non-destructive testing personnel, and over the past 30 years a large number of non-destructive testing personnel who have undergone professional education and vocational training have made outstanding contributions in the fields of aerospace, nuclear industry, special equipment, steel structure manufacturing and so on.
Recognition and promotion of their achievements is an important link to promote the development of non-destructive testing and strengthen the training of non-destructive testing talents. The Forum for the Development of Non-destructive Testing higher education, established in 2005 and hosted by the Conference on The Professional Conference on Education and Training science, is an important platform for promoting the development of higher education and serving enterprises. In November 2014, the "Fifth Forum on the Development of Non-destructive Testing Higher Education" was held at Chongqing University, and the General Conference on Education and Training Science And Technology Was to Hear a Report on the Establishment of the "SNT Award of the China Society of Non-destructive Testing", which was warmly reflected.
The General Conference on Education and Training science work decided to make the award, award and publicity of the outstanding achievements of the winners a work of the Professional Conference, and in parallel with the Forum for the Development of Non-destructive Testing of Higher Education. In 2015, the board of the Non-destructive Testing Branch of the China Society of Mechanical Engineering approved the establishment of the "China Non-destructive Testing Society SNT Award".
