Product Code

This official one-day foundation course in thermography from the ITC (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 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 labs, 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.
