Thermal imaging is now more affordable than ever before but it is only fully effective and valuable as a fault detection tool in the hands of a properly trained user. A thorough grounding in the science behind infrared is vital to the correct application of the technology and this is what a Level 1 training course with the Infrared Training Centre (ITC) provides.
This course is British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BiNDT) approved and PCN ready for those who wish to complement their ITC certification with PCN CAT 2 certification. In addition to studying the basics of infrared and heat transfer, delegates learn how to operate the camera under different conditions and for various purposes. Instruction covers measurement tools and techniques and most importantly the identification of error sources such as reflective surfaces and sunlight.
The duration of the Level 1 course with ITC is now just four days, instead of five, a move that has proved extremely popular. Delegates can also choose to take a Premium Level 1 package that adds value both in terms of hardware provided and ongoing application support.

Next webinar – 16th September 2015:
In addition to its formal course programme, ITC also provide a wide selection of free expert instruction through staged seminars, on-site training and, most recently, webinars. This latest introduction is proving very successful and the company has now confirmed its latest event that will be broadcast on Wednesday 16th September 2015 at 10.00 hours BST.
It’s called ‘How to Capture a Great Thermal Image’ and it is an important skill that needs to be learned before any hot spot can be analysed. Thermal images that are out of focus, have poor contrast or insufficient resolution will not only compromise the user’s ability to measure temperature properly but may even result in the problem being missed altogether.
This live webcast addresses the basics of saving quality thermal data and covers the important imaging parameters that all thermographers should understand. The content will include a discussion on IR equipment operation as well as a review of real-world examples that demonstrate why it is critical to save good images.
