This course is designed to help you expand
your thermal testing business to include infrared moisture surveys. Providing this service will help your clients
understand the source and extent of hidden water damage and moisture that could lead to significant structural
damage or microbial growth. A professional infrared moisture survey report can be used to help guide repair efforts,
to aid those writing mold remediation protocols, or to document expensive water damage claims for insurance policies.
course will teach you the use and operation of infrared cameras, how to conduct proper thermal surveys, the process
for investigating and positively identifying moisture using infrared, and how to prepare and deliver a professional

is one of the only infrared moisture survey courses available anywhere, and provides outstanding infrared training
for an excellent value. Written in easy-to-understand language, the thermal training is accompanied by many examples,
videos, and practice exercises to help you become familiar with the concepts.
- Differentiate between moisture and other thermal
anomalies that look similar
- Trace hidden moisture trails to their source and
use thermal capacitance differences to survey flat roofs
- Avoid false temperature change that can result
from differences in emissivity, reflectivity, transmissivity, and target surface geometry
- Ways to improve the quality of a thermal image
by understanding resolution, palette, range, and image contrast
- Create infrared moisture survey reports that document
conditions, make recommendations, and use post-processed radiometric images
you complete each lesson, you will use interactive flash cards and take practice quizzes that will test and verify
your knowledge simultaneously through instant computerized feedback. Your computer records the results so you can
easily track your progress.
course includes a quick-start DVD that will help guide you in starting a successful infrared business. Other benefits
