TRANSCRIPT

  • Infrared thermal imaging provide a means for perceiving the physical world in

    useful ways across a wide range of applications. And Level I training provides the

    fundamental information and class room experience necessary to prepare the

    student for applying infrared thermography in their work and to their applications.

    A key concept taught in the class is how to Think Thermally so that students can

    understand and explain why a thermal image appears as it does. In support of

    developing these foundational skills, this 32 hour training course employs a

    combination of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on lab experiments, as well as

    quizzes and reviews to test understanding. The training concludes with an overall

    course review and examinations. Includes the Snell Certification Standard.

    In Level I training, one of the aims is to prepare the student to be successful with

    making measurements and to help them understand the capabilities and limitations

    of their infrared thermography tools and knowledge. The course covers basic heat

    transfer theory and the theory and applications of infrared thermography including:

    building envelope and roofs, condition monitoring of electrical and mechanical

    equipment, and non-destructive testing of materials. Students are challenged daily

    with hands on demonstrations, experiments and inspection situations similar to

    those they will experience in their work. This class emphasizes qualitative

    thermography techniques and how to collect data following proven and published

    inspection procedures. Upon completion, students will be able to capture clear

    thermograms and make basic inferences and diagnosis.

    This course fully meets the educational requirements for certification according to the published recommendations of

    ASNT. The course is also approved for Continuing Education Credits, Units, or Hours by: ASHI, InterNACHI, BPI, NETA, and

    the State of Wisconsin (Journeyman Electrician, Master Electrician, and Boiler-Pressure Vessel Inspector Certifications).

    The course is open to everyone regardless of whether or not they own

    a thermal imager. Attendees that do have equipment are encouraged

    to bring their thermal imagers and laptop PCs as there are a number of

    hands-on learning opportunities available during the week.

    Note: Fox River Systems offers Operational Readiness Training for

    Fluke thermal imager users the morning of the first day of this Level I

    class. Interested students should select this option during the

    registration process. Please refer to the Operational Readiness

    Training outline (publication ORT-SEM) for additional details.

    CERTIFICATION:

    Students are only required to take the general exam to successfully

    complete the course. Additionally, students will have the opportunity

    to take a three-part certification examination consisting of two written

    portions and a practical where you must show proficiency with your

    infrared camera. The 40 question general exam will evaluate your

    general knowledge in infrared theory and mainstream applications. The

    specific exam will be based on accepted ASTM, ISO, NFPA, NETA, IEEE,

    OSHA, EPRI, and BINDT methodologies. The practical exam will allow

    you to prove you have the skills necessary to perform testing in the

    field.

    In the absence of having written procedures, each student will be given

    a summary of the applicable standard that applies to your work. You

    will also leave with a copy of a Written Practice which is a suggested

    guideline on how to organize and manage a certification program for

    your company. It is a straight forward document and process to set up

    a program, but it has critical importance in describing the educational

    experience and testing requirements for certification for your

    organization. As part of the course fee we will help you after the course

    to put in place a meaningful and effective written practice.

    The curriculum and all instructors are overseen by ASNT Level III

    Certificate Holders.
