Infrared Training

Our Fundamentals of Thermography Level I Certification Course is a beginning thermography course that focuses on how infrared is utilized for a variety of applications. You will learn the essentials of camera operation, heat transfer, and report writing. You will receive a Level I Infrared Thermography Certification upon successful course completion.
 
Infrared Course Benefits
  • Learn the core concepts of heat transfer and how it impacts imaging and temperature measurement.
  • Review thermography best practices, including factors that affect measurement accuracy, the required conditions for a successful inspection, and important safety considerations.
  • Analyze thermal images, prioritize anomalies, and create simple reports using the latest infrared inspection software.
  • Discover how to take simple temperature measurements of targets by learning the fundamentals of emissivity and reflectivity.
  • Learn thermal imaging fundamentals for reliability maintenance, building envelope analysis, and roof moisture applications. No previous experience is necessary!
  • Develop IR camera operation skills that are essential for collecting quality data with your thermal imager.
  • Gain experience with hands-on exercises that build your foundational knowledge of camera operation while re-enforcing the heat transfer concepts taught throughout the week.
 
Required Course Materials:
  • IR Camera- Students will be required to complete various labs & exercises throughout the course.
  • Laptop- Certification Examinations will be administered electronically. Tablets are also acceptable.
  • IR Reporting Software- Please have the software installed before class. The software can be used to assist with many of the camera lab exercises.
  • Accessories-Extra Batteries, charger cords.

Please bring an IR camera to class if you have one. Cameras are not provided during the training course. If you do not have access to a camera, you can rent one through MFE Inspection Solutions.

 
Tuition

A registration fee of $1995 USD includes course instruction, course materials, continental breakfast, and lunch each day. Please note that prices may vary for courses conducted outside the continental U.S.; please confirm your price with your local MFE Inspection Solutions Representative.

 
Certification
  • No previous thermography experience or IR camera is required.
  • Students who complete all training course requirements will receive a Level I Infrared Thermography Certification and a wallet ID card.
  • Level I learning objectives, contact hours, and written exams are based on requirements outlined by ANSI/ASNT CP-105 and CP-189 of the American Society for Non-Destructive Testing.
  • ITC Certification is the gold standard qualification within the thermography industry and exceeds the requirements of international standards.
Optical Gas Imaging Certification Training

 

Skilled users of the new FLIR GF-Series cameras and the legacy GasFindIR camera can inspect over 3,000 connections per day. Current sniffer technology is limited to about 500 connections per day.

Students will learn how to set up and operate FLIR optical gas imaging cameras. They will learn how to optimally adjust their cameras for varying environmental conditions to find gas leaks. Students will learn under what environmental conditions gas leaks are most easily found, somewhat easy to find, and difficult to find.

This class will teach students which gases can be found with FLIR optical gas imaging cameras and leak size limitations. Some basic infrared theory and heat transfer concepts will be introduced to build a strong foundation.

Lab and field practice in finding leaks is a key part of this class. Students will learn by doing and by observing numerous videos of leaks and what to look for, including thermal contrast, gas plume motion, distance limitations, etc. Basic inspection procedures will be covered, including equipment checkout, route planning, permitting requirements, safety practices/equipment, and reporting concepts.

Students will receive a training certification for optical gas imaging camera usage after successfully completing the course.

Course Objectives
  • Explain the regulatory framework for optical gas imaging.
  • Describe the OGI certification process.
  • Demonstrate proper operation of a FLIR GasFindIR HSX or FLIR GF-Series infrared camera.
  • Explain the basics of thermal science.
  • Explain how optical gas imaging is a combination of art, science, technique, and interpretive skills.
  • List the basic safety practices for doing an OGI inspection.
Required Course Materials:
  • IR Camera- Students will be required to complete various labs & exercises throughout the course.
  • Laptop- Certification Examinations will be administered electronically. Tablets are also acceptable.
  • IR Reporting Software- Please have the software installed before class. The software can be used to assist with many of the camera lab exercises.
