What Others Say

Since 1980, Infraspection Institute has trained thousands of thermographers worldwide. Our list of satisfied clients includes some of the world’s largest and most recognized companies as well as dozens of small and mid-sized companies.

Our grads constantly tell us that we have the industry’s most comprehensive training courses. This is especially flattering when they tell us that they have attended other courses and were exposed to only a fraction of what we teach in our classes. Here is what some of our grads tell us about our courses:
