    I did a two week course learning LPI in Aircraft Mechanic school, I found it to be pretty fun! We were tasked to find a crack in a swashplate, and when i went though the process of applying the penetrant and going into the blackroom to bring out the crack, it felt pretty rewarding. Unfortunately, I never did well with the program because my manual dexterity was poor and i never had a great mechanical aptitude. I joined mainly because i loved aircraft. I was thinking back on my experince in the LPI course and I thought that NDT may be a potential career that i’d be interested in. The only thing i’m afraid of is maybe not being mechanically inclined enough to succeed in the field. Should i be concerned about this? I had fun with the little time i had with it, I just want to make sure that I have a chance at succeeding in the field. Thanks for any advice that anyone can provide!
