Refresher – Level 1-Electrical Applications

Online Course—On-Demand
Phone # for Questions: 

Are you conducting successful electrical inspections? Have you forgotten important methodologies for inspecting electrical apparatus and systems? Do you fully understand emissivity and reflected/background temperatures and the effect they have on your data? What about being able to “see” an electrical problem, but how different it is than getting an accurate temperature measurement? What about obtaining data on indirect measurements? Do you remember why a 2-3°C problem may be more severe than a 25°C problem? Have you forgotten how to prioritize problems found based on real factors, not just temperatures? How is your image quality? What electrical components are you scanning? This course reviews the proper use of infrared equipment, camera performance specifications, and how to use your infrared equipment to effectively capture high-quality images for further analysis and reporting. Heat transfer theory, and the high points of a wide variety of electrical inspections are covered as well as safety issues and also the use of infrared windows.

This one-day review course summarizes the most important points of your previous learning. This course will reinforce some of the concepts you previously learned for deeper knowledge retention, as well enlighten you to some of the questions you may have from your earlier training, giving you deeper knowledge in these areas. All of this in a one-day on-demand format! This course is designed for all models of thermal imaging equipment.
