THERMOGRAPHY LEVEL I CERTIFICATION CLASS

 

Certified Infrared Thermography

Invizions, Inc. now offers training in Certified Infrared Thermography. Read about it and view the course curriculum. If you have any questions or are interested in setting up an training session, contact us right away.

 

Level I Certified Infrared Thermographer® is a five-day course for the application of qualitative thermal imaging for P/PM, Condition Assessment, Condition Monitoring, Quality Assurance, Forensic Investigations, and Building Sciences.

 

This course covers infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, standards compliance, image analysis and report generation.

 

Students are trained to identify and document thermal patterns caused by improper design, workmanship or material failure. Specific applications include: electrical distribution systems, mechanical systems, steam systems, refractory systems, underground piping, active thermography, building envelopes and flat roofs.

 

Course tuition includes all course presentations, Student Reference Manual, and Infraspection Institute Certified Infrared Thermographer® exam. Certification card and diploma issued with passing grade of 80%. Course is approved by the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors and meets the training requirements for their Infrared Certified professional designation and logo.

 

Training and certification through Infraspection Institute can be taught at your facility or at one of the specific training sites.
