About Our Accreditations
A2LA is an independent, internationally-recognized accreditation body located in the USA. Laboratory Testing Inc. received its first A2LA accreditation certificate in 1989 for dimensional testing; a certificate for calibration was added in 2001. The lab has continued to expand the scope of A2LA accredited calibration and testing services throughout the years, and in 2012 added services under the umbrellas of mechanical testing, metallographic evaluation and chemical testing to the lab’s scope of accreditation.
Nadcap is the Performance Review Institute’s aerospace industry accreditation program, created to help ensure that the products and services provided by aerospace manufacturers and suppliers meet specified safety, quality and reliability requirements. Since 1992, Laboratory Testing Inc. has been Nadcap accredited in the following nondestructive testing methods: liquid penetrant testing, magnetic particle inspection and ultrasonic testing. LTI has retained 24-month merit status based on the latest assessment conducted in 2015. LTI was first Nadcap accredited for materials testing in 1994 and today has a scope that covers an extensive list of chemistry, metallography and mechanical testing methods.
