Infrared Thermography Level II (ITL2)

Infrared Thermography Level II


The course will expand past the basics of infrared theory. It will discuss how to operate the camera under different conditions, how to make a judgment of the measurement situation in the field and identify potential sources for error. After successfully completing this course the student will be able to do IR inspections following written guidelines, and will be able to report the results of the inspection using industry recognized standards. 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. The learning objectives, contact hours and written exam of AVO Training Institute are based on the requirements outlined by ANSI/ASNT CP-105 and CP-189 of the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing. This course is suitable for the use by your employer to certify the student under ASNT’s Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A provided it is consistent with the employer’s written practice.

Infrared Thermography Level 2 training is designed for the practicing IR Level 2 infrared camera user, and will benefit the student who has a desire to advance past the basics of infrared thermography.


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

  • Discuss more in depth concepts of heat transfer, infrared theory, and spatial resolution.
  • Outline and practice thermal imaging survey and measurement techniques. 
  • Discuss radiosity concepts.
  • Explain the basics of predictive maintenance thermography and an inspection program. 
  • Summarize the different applications of thermography.


A current IR Level 1 certification is required to be a participant in the IR Level 2 course. Please send a copy of a current and up-to-date IR Level 1 certification with the registration (NO EXCEPTIONS). 


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

PPE Requirements:
AVO is committed to the personal safety of each participant and requires appropriate wearing apparel for lab activities. Long pants and ANSI rated “safety toe” work shoes are acceptable as meeting this requirement.



After completing the classroom portion of this course the student will be required to submit a complete infrared survey report within sixty days. The report will be graded as part of the final grade to receive a Thermography Level 2 certification.
