A 32-hour online course covering the theory and applications of infrared thermography in the preventive maintenance, quality assurance, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing of materials fields. This class focuses on qualitative thermography and how to collect data and follow proven and published inspection procedures. Upon completion, students will be able to capture clear thermograms and make basic inferences and diagnosis.
Level 1 material includes infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, operation of thermal imaging equipment and specific recommendations on how to make quality thermal images that are clear, concise and easy to interpret. There are several hands-on simulations and exercises built into the training. Finishing this course prepares students for the basic inspection techniques based on accepted industry and international inspection procedures.
This course fully meets the educational requirements for certification in accordance with Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A, as defined by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing.
Topics covered include:
- Electrical distribution systems
- Mechanical systems
- Steam systems
- Underground piping
- Active thermography
- Building envelopes
- Low-slope roofs
- Nondestructive testing of materials
While owning an infrared camera is not necessarily required to participate, those who wish to complete the class in its entirety should have access to one.
