Director’s Message

It is hard to believe how far thermal imaging has advanced over the past 25 years. High resolution thermal imagers, sophisticated analysis software, and wireless transmission of imagery are now quite common. Despite numerous technological advances, proper interpretation of thermal imagery still relies upon a trained thermographer.

With the first quarter drawing to a close, now is the time to make plans for this year’s training. Infraspection offers both open enrolment and onsite classes as well as our convenient Distance Learning Courses for Thermography. Give us a call and we’ll help you choose an option that meets your needs and budget.

On Site Training

If you have four or more employees that need training and certification, an on-site training course may be right for you. On-site training courses eliminate employee travel expenses and can be scheduled at your convenience.

Since we do not manufacture or sell infrared equipment, our courses are presented without marketing hype and are relevant to all brands of thermal imagers. All courses are taught using a combination of dynamic multi-media presentations, hands-on demonstrations and one-on-one interaction with students designed to maximize each student’s learning experience!
Call us for a quotation and let us show you how affordable on-site training can be.

Infraspection Standards

At present, Infraspection Institute publishes the most comprehensive list of standards for infrared thermography. Coauthored by numerous expert thermographers, these standards outline industry best practices and are updated regularly to reflect current trends and technology.

Nine comprehensive standards covering equipment operation, temperature measurement, and specific thermographic applications are available from Infraspection Institute. Each standard provides simple and straightforward procedures along with the requirements for properly documenting test results. These documents are a ‘must-have’ for anyone who specifies, performs, or oversees infrared inspections.
