  • Collect quality data, accurate temperature readings and account for measurement effects such as distance and emissivity using infrared cameras.

  • Distinguish between hot spots and reflections, direct vs. indirect readings, and qualitative vs. quantitative thermography.

  • Interpret thermograms and make informed decisions using heat transfer concepts to analyze thermal images.

  • Use infrared inspection report generation and database software.

  • Use the reporting software and procedures necessary to communicate results.
The hands-on class is tailored to new users of thermography equipment and costs $1,850. For more information or to register, call (866) 872-4647.
