Purpose

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes training and approval of personnel performing certain heat-treating and associated operations that could have a material impact on the properties of materials being heat treated. It also recommends that only approved personnel perform or monitor the functions listed in Table 1.

This document conforms to the general concepts of the training requirements for personnel in ISO 9000.

Responsibility

The company (facility) employing the heat-treating and associated personnel is the responsible agency for determination of its training and evaluation program and approval of the individual heat treaters and associated personnel.

Summary of Requirements

Approved personnel should meet certain requirements of on-the-job training, education, classroom instruction, and evaluation. Some suggested on-the-job training may be substituted by experience and education. Some suggested online or classroom instruction may be substituted by equivalent experience. The company (facility) employing the personnel is responsible for determining these substitutions and equivalencies.

This document does not mandate any specific on-the-job training program or specific education or classroom instruction program. It does not require any specific testing or evaluation nor any specific question(s) on the test or evaluation. The ASM International, Heat Treating Society (HTS), and the Metal Treating Institute (MTI) training and testing documents described herein are not required by this document; they are provided as sources which the heat-treating facility can obtain and use as needed.

Application

This document is applicable to heat treatment of parts, castings, forgings, and fasteners. It is invoked only when cited by another specification, the engineering drawing, or purchase order. This procedure is not applicable for the heat treatment of raw materials, excluding forgings and castings as described above. It is applicable for raw materials heat-treated by an outside vendor, but only when invoked by specification. It is applicable to both heat treat vendors and to captive heat treat departments. It is not applicable to airline maintenance facilities, unless specified.
