Level 1 Infrared Thermography
16 hour online participation, 16 hour in-class participation
Over this 32 hour workshop, the application of thermal imaging for Assessment and Monitoring of Conditions, Quality Assurance, Forensic Investigations, and Building Science will be presented. This course will cover: Infrared Theory, Heat Transfer Concepts, Equipment Operation and Selection, Standards Compliance, and Image Analysis and Report Generation.
Our 16+16 course is a two-part, ASNT compliant program which combines 16-hours of classroom and hands-on education with 16-hours of online learning. This unique approach allows you to complete your Level I training without missing a week of work or incurring added travel costs.
16-hour Classroom & Hands-on Training:
Our classroom segments combine theory and application discussions with hands-on camera experiments. From thermodynamics to proper level and span settings, we take a step-by-step approach to teaching the “how and why” behind each action. Through hands-on exercises you’ll learn the importance of proper camera settings and how to collect, capture, and diagnose thermal findings.
16-hour Online Learning Program:
Using an ASNT compliant program which has successfully trained thousands of thermographers worldwide, our online segment features narrated presentations, self-directed activities, and practice quizzes designed to supplement our classroom training. The online program and accompanying printed book
include the learning materials required for you to remotely complete the theory portion of Level I training.
This component is key to our program, as it provides an opportunity for you to experiment with different infrared cameras through instructor lead, hands-on exercises. You’ll learn about the power of heat transfer, reflectance, and emissivity as you discover what it takes to capture a quality thermal image. By the end of the two days you will be able to properly setup, focus, and capture infrared images using a thermal imager.
HOP’s - Hands-On Observable Performances:
Our exclusive HOP’s are exciting experiments for testing your technical knowledge of camera operation, image capture, and data collection. Work side by side with your instructor as you learn how to capture high quality thermal images across a range of applications.
Level I Certified Infrared Thermographer Exam Included:
Students who successfully complete the online and hands-on training components are eligible to take a final written exam to earn Level I Certification through Infraspection Institute
. Exam may be completed in-class or online (PC with web camera required).
