Director’s Message

Recently, I noticed a television schedule announcing the airing of one of my all-time favorite programs, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’. As a child growing up in the 1960’s, the annual airing of this program was proof that Christmas was just around the corner.

With no reruns on broadcast television, my brothers and I would plan our entire week around watching this special program each year. With a cool soundtrack, the program brought our favorite Peanuts characters to life as Charlie Brown strove to discover the meaning of Christmas. To this day, Linus VanPelt’s simple monologue is one of my favorite holiday memories.
With the holidays and busy year-end schedules upon us once again, I invite you to take the time to make special memories with family and friends and to keep them in your heart where you may easily find them in the future.

As we enjoy this holiday season, we extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all of our readers, friends, and associates throughout the world for everything that you do for us all year long. May your holidays be filled with peace and joy and your New Year with good health and happiness.

Course Materials Licensing for In-house Training

During the past few years, shrinking maintenance budgets have created challenges for those responsible for employee training. Facility managers may also face manpower shortages whenever a large portion of their maintenance staff are attending a multi-day training course.

Infraspection Institute’s Course Materials Licensing program provides a unique opportunity for companies to bring quality training to their employees without having to develop their own training materials. Licensees can elect to teach applications or certification courses. Best of all, our program provides all training materials, course manuals, instructor training, and support.
Infraspection Institute’s course materials licensing is open to companies of all sizes. It is perfect for companies seeking to educate a sizeable thermography team. If you are an Infraspection Institute Certified Infrared Thermographer® and would like to find out how your company can provide in-house training for its thermographers, visit our Course Materials Licensing Page.
