As thermography grows in popularity, many thermographers and their employers are seeking ways to enhance their credibility. One option is to establish a written practice that complies with the American Society for Nondestructive Testing document, SNT-TC-1A. According to SNT-TC-1A, employers must establish a written practice for the control and administration of training, examination, and certification. While it is possible to outsource this task, this option can prove costly. For those with little or no experience establishing a written practice can be a time-consuming and confusing task.
In order to simplify the process of developing a written practice, Infraspection Institute has developed a document titled, Written Practice for Qualification & Certification of Personnel in Thermal/Infrared Testing Method. This document provides suggested wording and format for preparing a comprehensive written practice for the training, examination, and certification of infrared thermographers.
