Level I Thermography Certification – by Infrared Training Center®

thermography certification

As one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for industrial applications, thermal imagers can help you find when and where maintenance for electrical and mechanical applications are needed before failure occurs. Using an infrared camera may seem overwhelming but with a bit of training, you can learn how it can become one of your most effective preventative maintenance tools.

Join Van Meter and partner, Infrared Training Center (ITR), for a four-day course to earn your Level 1 Thermography Certification to gain the knowledge you need, and the confidence you demand using your thermal imaging device.

Ideal for new infrared camera users, this course focuses on how thermography can be used for a variety of condition monitoring/predictive maintenance applications. During the course, attendees will receive comprehensive hands-on lab training in a workshop format that is designed to engage the student while re-enforcing the principles of thermography covered in the material.

What you’ll learn:

  • What is thermal imaging and the measurement systems for predictive maintenance applications
  • How to use Infrared (IR) cameras to collect quality data and accurate temperature readings, accounting for measurement effects, such as distance and emissivity.
  • Exactly how to analyze and interpret thermal images accurately by using heat transfer concepts.
  • The latest infrared inspection report generation and analysis software.
  • How to distinguish between hot spots and reflections, direct vs. indirect readings, and qualitative vs. Quantitative thermography.
  • Hands-on field applications through labs that closely simulate real-world IR camera applications

Attendees upon completion of all training course requirements and a thermography field assignment will receive a Level Infrared Thermography Certification that is good for 5 years. ITC is registered with ISO-9001 and accredited by NETA in IR thermography training.

*Course cost includes course instruction, course materials and breakfast and lunch each day.
