Infrared Moisture Survey Course

Fees: $499 | Hours: 24 | Type: Online | Enroll

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.

Prerequisites: 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 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 quick-start DVD that will help guide you in starting a successful infrared business. Other benefits include infrared moisture survey report templates, a pre-survey agreement, 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 Infrared Moisture Surveyor and will possess the knowledge and skills needed to start a full or part-time business, or expand your existing infrared business.
