IR for Building Applications - Part III (Canada)

Course Details

Public Course

Prerequisite: Level I

This advanced building specialty applications course, designed for Canadian-based thermographers, will focus on building diagnostics for solving problems related to energy and the troubleshooting needs of all types of buildings and structures. The participants, upon completion of the training, will be able to better utilize imaging equipment to perform qualitative surveys of building enclosures. They will be able to incorporate thermographic inspection into existing building maintenance programs to reduce energy costs, improve occupancy comfort and reduce maintenance costs.
