Infrared Thermography Level I (ITL1)

Infrared Thermography Level I

COURSE OVERVIEW

The student who completes the training requirements and a thermography field assignment will receive an Infrared Thermography Level I Certification. The Infrared Thermography training course will teach the basics of infrared, how to operate the camera under different conditions and how to make a judgment of the measurement situation in the field and identify potential sources for error. The student will interpret thermograms and make informed decisions using heat transfer concepts to analyze thermal images and learn to distinguish between hot spots and reflections and direct versus indirect readings.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Infrared Thermography Level I training is designed around the entry-level infrared camera user and will benefit the student who has a desire to learn the basics of infrared thermography.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Summarize the history of Infrared Thermography and give examples of the practical applications afforded by this technology
  • Describe heat and its properties, contrasting it with temperature in terms of the properties each measures.
  • Describe the three modes of heat transfer as they relate to the heating of a surface.
  • Explain radiosity concepts and how they relate to the understanding of Infrared Thermography.
  • Demonstrate the operation of infrared equipment.
  • Perform an infrared survey and report the results of the survey.

REQUIREMENTS

Participants MUST provide their own infrared camera, reporting software, and personal computer.

CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS

After completing the classroom portion of this course, the student will be required to submit a complete infrared survey report within sixty (60) days. The report will be graded and it will count as one third of the final grade.
