Thermography Training

Meeting NotesAs part of our value add service and in keeping with our ethos of providing instruments that are easy to use in order to encourage there use, we provide a basic understanding of thermal imaging and camera / software operations to all our customers that purchase thermal cameras from us.

Over and above this, working with our partners at the Institute of Infrared Training Ltd we offer the following course outline:

Level 1 Certification Overview

This course is designed to meet and exceed ISO 18436 and the ASNT SNT-TC-1A recommended practices.

The training programme combines both 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 the field today.  This is combined with hands-on operator training that teaches how to use infrared instruments.  Our trainers 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 utilise 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 trainers 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.

Course Content

  • Thermal / Infrared Physics
  • Temperature, How It Is Measured
  • The Nature of Heat and Temperature
  • Heat Transfer Mode Familiarisation
  • Infrared Equipment Operation
  • Calibration
  • Infrared Applications
  • Radiosity Concepts
  • How To Do An Infrared Inspection

Building Thermography Course

This course is run in conjunction with Salford University.

This course will show you how to identify conduction and convection losses such as missing, inadequate and improperly installed insulation, air movement through the building envelope, improper air sealing and missing air barriers. Results of moisture problems are a deterioration of the building enclosure which will lead to reduced energy efficiency, structural damage and in many cases, mold and bacteria growth. This course will show you how to locate moisture problems well before they become visibly apparent, and, identify the source of the problem. Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning problems along with electrical and mechanical inspection will be reviewed in this comprehensive course.
