Thermography Application Courses

IR Inspection of Building Envelopes & Roofs is a two-day theory and application course for the use of thermal imaging to locate and evaluate energy loss and moisture problems within building envelopes and insulated roofing systems. This is a non-certification course that focuses on these specific applications. Course attendance may be applied to training requirements for thermographer certification.

This course covers infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, standards compliance, image analysis and report generation.

Students are trained to identify and document thermal patterns caused by improper design, workmanship or material failure. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own imager for individualized training or to learn how to use it more effectively.

Course tuition includes all course presentations, Course Reference Manual and Certificate of Completion. Courses usually begin at 8 am on the first day and end at 5:00 pm on the second day.

Prerequisite: None

Infrared Electrical & Rotating Equipment Inspections

Opportunities to improve system performance by reducing unplanned outages and repairs.

  • Identify and document exceptions in electrical systems that are caused by deteriorated connections, short circuits, overloads or other problems.
  • NFPA 70B recommends infrared inspections of electrical equipment annually Identify and document exceptions in rotating equipment that are caused by friction due to improper lubrication, misalignment, worn components or other problems.
  • Scan before shutdown to locate minor problems for timely repairs
