Infrared Thermography Level-I:

The training programme combines theoretical and practical activities blended together to provide a positive learning experience. The theoretical information is essential for understanding the real world problems that face thermographers in field today. This is combined with hands-on operator training that teaches how to use infrared instruments. Our trainer are highly qualified and experienced and they can teach you not only basic system operation, but also the finer points of your specific piece of equipment and give you the knowledge utilities the tools at your disposal.

You will also learn the principles behind the main applications of infrared thermography and study how industries incorporate this technology into different businesses.

Our trainer will teach how to create professional reports and the processes that are used by qualified thermographers. After completing the course you will have an understanding of the techniques and reporting procedures necessary to put together an effective predictive maintenance program. (This course is designed to meet and exceed ISO 18436 and the SNT-TC-1A recommended practices.) The course will be delivered by the institute of infrared thermography.
