Frequently Asked Questions

Are you new to thermography or interested in understanding more about our training courses? Below are our FAQ’s, and if you would like to learn more, we encourage you to read about our Category 1 and Category 2 courses, or visit our Additional Resources for more.

Gaining proper Infrared Thermography Training is critical as low-level faults can easily be missed by the untrained technician and these can easily turn into catastrophic failures in between surveys. Properly trained, qualified, and certified IR technicians provide companies with a greater return on their investment.

Properly trained, qualified, and certified IR technicians can detect an electrical fault, sometimes years before the component fails completely, providing the asset owner with adequate time to have the fault repaired. This prevents the risk failure causing costly downtime and sometimes fire; in fact, the risk is more common than people often realise.

There are various topics explained and workshops covered over a five-day, Virtual or Face-to-Face Course.

Some of the things you will learn in our courses are:

  • How to operate your equipment.
  • Heat transfer concepts.
  • How to eliminate or overcome common error sources.
  • How to identify all types of faults and analyse your findings.
