Alan Campbell MP with Shoreland Staff at Grand Opening


Shoreland NDT Academy opened its doors earlier this year to a brand new NDT training facility based in Newcastle Upon Tyne.


The academy is the brain child of Shoreland Access’ Directors, who were keen to build on the back of Shoreland’s success in the NDT inspection industry.


Founded in 2012, Shoreland has experienced considerable growth in a short space of time. Directors Neil Cox along with father and son team, Ken and Jack Miles, felt there was a gap in the market in the North East for a new NDT training centre.


Director Neil Cox said at its opening ‘Newcastle and the North East are home to several large companies in the Engineering, Chemical and Energy sectors. We also have a large contingent of offshore workers based in the area. Shoreland has the potential to fill a gap for NDT training needs for companies and technicians alike.’


The purpose built training facility, recently opened by local MP Alan Campbell, boasts two classrooms, two practical areas, exam room and breakout area. With excellent transport links to Newcastle Central Station and Airport, the centre has the potential to attract students from further afield.

Labour MP Alan Campbell when opening the facility said, ‘I want to congratulate Shoreland Access on bringing this facility to our area. It’s a state of the art facility and will be part of an important group of companies playing a key role in the Offshore Sector’



The new BINDT approved training organisation is now offering two PCN accredited training courses per week. These range from conventional NDT techniques such as Dye Penetrant, Magnetic Particle and Ultrasonic Inspection to the more complex Eddy Current and Phased Array.
