IR Inspections for Weatherization Professionals is a 14 hour theory and application course for the use of thermal imaging as a diagnostic tool for use in the weatherization of building envelopes. This is a non-certification course focused on the use of a thermal imager to inspect building envelopes and building subsystems. Course completion may be applied to training requirements for thermographer certification.
Course provides in-depth and practical instruction for thermographically detecting hidden problems in building sidewalls, roofs, HVAC ducts, and related building subsystems. Course attendance may be applied to training requirements for thermographer certification through Infraspection Institute and the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors.
This course covers infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, using a thermal imager in conjunction with a blower door, standards compliance, image analysis, tools for confirming infrared data, and report generation.
Students are trained to identify and document thermal patterns caused by improper design, workmanship, or material failure. Self directed learning activities are provided to help student gain practical experience; however, one need not have a camera to successfully complete the course.
