Level 1 Infrared Thermographer Course

Fees: $995 | Hours: 60 | Type: Online | Enroll

This in-depth course is geared towards those entering the infrared thermography field who may not have a background in science or engineering. No experience in thermography is necessary, and no infrared camera is required. The course begins with the fundamentals of physics and infrared energy in easy to understand language, and meets all Level I ASNT recommendations for thermal/infrared testing, as established by the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT). After completing the course, you will receive a Level I Infrared Thermographer Certification. Furthermore, you will possess the skills and knowledge necessary to begin your infrared thermography career.

One of the few Level 1 thermography courses that can be completed entirely online, this course provides outstanding infrared training for an excellent value. You will learn how to use an infrared camera for a variety of diagnostic, monitoring, and predictive maintenance applications in commercial, industrial and building environments. The training is accompanied by many examples, videos, and practice exercises to help you become familiar with the concepts.

  • Collect quality data, accurate temperature readings, and account for measurement effects such as online and emissivity using infrared cameras.
  • Interpret thermograms and make informed decisions using heat transfer concepts to analyze thermal images
  • Avoid the beginner mistakes that can damage your business
  • Distinguish between hot spots and reflections, direct vs. indirect readings and qualitative vs. quantitative thermography.
  • Challenging examples that simulate real-world infrared applications.

As you complete each lesson, you will use interactive flash cards and take practice quizzes that will test and verify your knowledge simultaneously through instant online feedback. Your computer records the results so you can easily track your progress.

The course includes a DVD that takes you through a complete infrared property survey, and another DVD that contains a quick-start guide for your infrared business. Other benefits include infrared survey report templates, pre-survey agreements, and our toll free support to help you get started. When you finish the course and pass the final exam, you will be a Certified ASNT Level I Thermographer and will possess the knowledge and skills needed to start a full or part-time infrared business.
