Level I Infrared Thermography Applications Training
The base Level I course covers the theory and use of infrared thermography across a wide range of applications including predictive maintenance applications such as inspections of electrical and mechanical systems, approaches to production and process systems, and building diagnostics applications including insulation performance, air infiltration/ exfiltration, and moisture intrusion.
We'll cover key techniques for finding and solving problems. The participants, upon completion of the training, will have an understanding of the basic heat theory necessary for successfully employing infrared thermography into their work. They will be able to capture clear thermograms and make basic inferences and diagnosis. And they'll have an understanding of a set of techniques to perform surveys.
Level I material includes infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, overview of infrared thermography applications and associated inspection techniques, and operation of thermal imaging equipment to capture high quality thermal images that are clear, concise and possible to interpret. Students are challenged daily with hands on demonstrations, experiments and inspection situations similar to those they will experience in their work. Students leave Snell training ready to put this amazing technology to work. This course fully meets the educational requirements for certification according to the published recommendations of ASNT.
Two optional supplements are offered:
Supplement 1) Operational Readiness Training for Fluke and FLIR thermal imagers and software -- addressing product-specific features and workflows not covered in Level 1 training
Supplement 2) Operational Readiness Training and Applications for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS/drones) - addressing the unique features and limitations of thermal imaging from a sUAS/drone and methods for carrying out autonomous collection of thermal images of roofs/building, solar PV arrays, and electric transmission infrastructure. The course brings focus to the software that enables critical workflows associated with these image collection, analysis, and reporting for these specialized applications.
