    • Nital, Temper, Blue Etch Anodize, Anodic Etching, Macrostructure, Pre-Penetrant
  • PD 6103 CPBoK-001/OW-1 Etch and Etch Inspector – Owner
    • Nital, Temper, Blue Etch Anodize, Anodic Etching, Macrostructure, Pre-Penetrant

Heat Treating

  •  PD 6103 HTBoK-001/PL-2 Pyrometry Service Out-Sourced Planner
    • Performance of Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing Equipment
  • PD 6103 HTBoK-001/PL-2 Pyrometry Service In-House Planner
    • Performance of Pyrometric Requirements for Thermal Processing Equipment

The issue date of these BoKs is 14 May 2014. They join the existing list of Bodies of Knowledge which include:

About eQuaLified

eQuaLified has been created to address two major workforce challenges facing the aerospace industry:

1.       Global skills crisis and succession planning

2.       Ability to assess the special process skills of a global workforce to ensure consistent, high standards can be sustained

eQuaLified leverages the combined knowledge of aerospace industry experts from OEMs (including Honeywell International Inc. and Rolls Royce plc), airlines, suppliers, training organizations and other applicable industry organizations to develop and maintain special process BoKs and examinations. This will gage personnel subject knowledge expertise and assess opportunities for training and development; together they capture the desired global aerospace industry expectations for special process personnel knowledge and competency.

eQuaLified is administered by the not-for-profit Performance Review Institute, the same trade association that administers Nadcap.

Additional BoKs and examinations are currently being developed for Chemical Processing, Heat Treating and Composite Repair.
