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.
This 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 infrared moisture survey report. A previous Level 1 Thermographer certification is recommended, but not required. You do not need an infrared camera to take this course.
Recommended: Level I Thermographer Certification, or 24 course hours in thermography basics, or equivalent thermography work experience.
