Infrared Thermography Certification - Level 1

The Level 1 Infrared Thermography Certification course, is designed to teach the student the necessary principles required to understand infrared thermography and its application.
This course meets or exceeds the recommended training requirements of ASNT-TC-1A & ISO 18436-7 for Level I Thermal / Infrared Certification. The course is a good mixture of audio, visual, and kinetic presentation material. The hands-on workshops ensure that the students leave the course with confidence in their ability to operate their IR equipment.
Certification will be granted to students who successfully complete the written requirements. Class size is limited to give maximum interaction between instructor and students.
Students are recommended to supply their own Thermography equipment, if the student doesn't have access to their own camera, there will be systems available on the day.
