The ITC offers certification training to recognised standards and is an accredited Authorised Training Organisation for BINDT (British Institute of Non Destructive Testing).

This course will ensure you have the knowledge and understanding required to qualify as a Category 1 Thermographer (CAT 1) - formerly Level 1, and the ability to undertake surveys to ISO standard 18343-1. On completion of the course you will have learnt about the basics of infrared, operating the camera under different conditions, how to make an appropriate judgment of the measurement situation in the field and identification of potential sources for errors.

Course Content

  • Introduction to Thermography
    • History, benchmarks, applications including electrical, mechanical, building, medical, R&D
    • Camera technology, an overview from older scanning systems to modern day FPAs
    • Explanation of camera operation and how the camera converts radiation into an image

  • Heat & Temperature
    • Heat & measurement, contact vs non-contact temperature measurement
    • How radiation is converted into temperature and an introduction to heat transfer

  • Infrared Theory Basics
    • Scientific laws relating to conduction, convection, radiation, blackbodies, transmission, emissivity, reflectivity and calibration
    • Practical demonstration of these heat transfer modes with follow up theory

  • Measurement Techniques
    • Atmospheric & environmental considerations including distance, humidity, air temperature and reflected apparent temperature
    • How to measure these parameters and set up the camera correctly

  • Basic Heat Transfer Theory
    • Temperature definition & measurement, thermodynamics, heat & temperature, heat transfer, conduction, convection & radiation

  • Camera Measurement Tools
    • A look at cross hair measurement, area box / circle, colour alarms and specific dew point & insulation alarms

  • Camera / Software Familiarisation
    • Hands-on camera experience throughout the course. Camera practice using portable simulated labs, intergration of images with reporting software and creation of reports

  • ITC Certification & Test
    • ITC qualification (50 question multiple choice test) to be held on the last day of the course
