Infrared Level II Online Distance Learning Course

Please note this course has the prerequisite of Level I training through a recognized provider.
 
Our Level II course is a 32 hour online course for the application of quantitative thermal imaging and temperature measurement for P/PM, Condition Monitoring, Quality Assurance and Forensic Investigations.

Course covers advanced infrared theory, equipment calibration, error sources, cross-verification with contact thermometers, advanced equipment operation, use of windows and filters, assigning temperature limits and repair priorities, and quantitative report generation.

If you plan to include precise temperature measurements in your findings and reports, you need the necessary knowledge to know how and when to provide such data. Our Level II course will prepare you for applications and thinking that is "outside of the box" and necessary for those wishing to advance their careers as professional thermographers. Course meets ASNT guidelines for the training of NDT personnel and optional certification testing is available.

With each course purchased, you will receive:
  • Printed Reference Manual 
  • Multi-Question Online Quizzes for each Course Unit
  • Hands-on Experiments Utilizing Provided Materials
  • Instructions for Self-Directed Field Assignments
  • 60-days of unlimited access to online materials
  • Final Certification Exam Fee
