Thermal Imaging Training Course from the ITC taught live via Video Platform (Zoom) (1 day).
This official one-day foundation course in thermography from the ITC (Infrared Training Center - the industry recognised world leader in IR thermography training) will equip you with all the necessary know-how needed to carry out basic thermal imaging (TI) surveys correctly, safely and avoiding common pitfalls and mistakes.
The foundation course is aimed at those who are new to thermal imaging, or those wishing to take the first steps towards becoming a professionally qualified thermographer, and is suitable for those looking to get involved in any of the following TI application areas:
- Electrical Thermography
- Solar Panel Inspection
- Building Thermography
- HVAC and Plumbing Inspection
In order to carry out a thermal imaging survey correctly, you need to understand how a TI camera works, what settings you need to change to get accurate readings, what materials you should avoid and how to select the best point for measurement. Following that, knowing how to interpret thermal images and put together a meaningful and accurate report is key.
This one-day ITC foundation course is interactive and taught live via video platform (in English) and will give you the knowledge you need. We look at thermal pattern analysis in order to determine the cause of faults and also include practical interactive demonstrations using real world scenarios, so you can put your knowledge into practice. At the end of the course, you will be given an example of a bad report and will use your knowledge to spot the errors.

The benefits for you
It can be very easy to misinterpret a thermal image, especially if your thermal camera is not set up properly, or the surroundings and materials are not taken into account. By completing this training course, you will have gained key knowledge in how to use your camera, as well as an understanding of emissivity and reflected temperature, the influence of the angle on the measurement and the influence of object size on the measurement. This knowledge will help to give you a competitive edge in this rapidly growing market.
"May I say how pleased I was with the above course, I attended yesterday. The presenter was excellent and his subject & application knowledge was excellent. I would recommend anyone considering purchasing a Thermal camera to attend this course to ensure a cost effective purchase of a camera to suit the needs of their profession, and also ensure they know how to properly use the camera & software - T Campbell, ARCIS MCIOB
"I learned a lot about thermography, certainly enough to give me a good start, thanks." - Martin B, Birds Eye UK
"Course was at a good pace and full of good information. I will be going back to my company well informed in the use of Infra-cam" - Oliver B, Birds Eye UK
Do I need a thermal camera to attend?
No, as this course is taught remotely we will provide all the equipment needed for the practical interactive demonstrations.
Are there any pre-requisites for the course?
This course is suitable for beginners and provides an excellent entry level into thermal imaging, so there are no specific requirements for attendance to this course. The course starts at 9.30am and finishes around 4.00pm.
If you have a number of delegates who wish to attend but for whom the upcoming course dates aren’t suitable then we do have options available where a group course can be run especially for you. These can take place at a mutually convenient date of your choosing and with the course syllabus tweaked to focus on your specific application(s).
