UT Authors Needed for New ASNT Publications

May 25, 2010

COLUMBUS, OH - Are you an ultrasonic testing (UT) specialist with good writing skills? Would you like to communicate your knowledge of UT in the form of a book? ASNT is seeking a qualified author or authors to write two new programmed instruction self-study books for ultrasonic testing.

As an ASNT author, you would cover Level I and II topics for ultrasonic testing. Each level will be treated in a separate book or volume. ASNT will provide ANSI/ASNT CP-105-2006 outlines as well as the most recent CD edition of the NDT Handbook on ultrasonic testing. Authors will also receive the new UT Classroom Training Book as a resource.

Are you good at coming up with quiz questions and tests? The selected author(s) will write a complete text using an interactive style that guides the reader through the material in a question-extended answer mode. Authors will also develop their own end-of-chapter review questions and a comprehensive self-test. If you are interested in accepting the role of author for either (or both) of these much-needed new books with the latest UT information, please send a) your resume or vita, b) estimated time for completion of a book-length manuscript, and c) your anticipated fee to: Educational Materials Editor Bob Conklin at bconklin@asnt.org or fax 614-274-6899.

You may also mail your proposal to: ASNT
