National Certifying Body for Infrared Professionals
PROFESSIONAL HOME INSPECTION INSTITUTE
Infrared Moisture Survey Course
Price: $499 Length: 24-Hours (Online)
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.
This 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, 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
As you complete each lesson, you will use interactive flash cards and take practice quizzes that will test your
knowledge, generate instant feedback and provide opportunities to correct mistakes, re-learn information and re-test.
Our system keeps track of your progress, so you can take a break at any time, even turn off your computer and the

business, or expand your existing infrared business.
