Level I Online Distance Learning Course

Our Level I Thermography course is a 32 hour program for the application of qualitative thermal imaging for Predictive Maintenance, Condition Assessment, Condition Monitoring, Quality Assurance, Forensic Investigations, and Building Sciences. 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.

Self directed learning activities are provided to help students gain practical experience. Although a camera is not required to successfully complete the course, it is HIGHLY recommended.

InspectorTools offers low cost weekly camera rentals to online students that do not own a camera. Call for pricing and availability.
