Course overview:

Looking to incorporate thermography into your line of services or simply planning to use it regularly as a part of your operations? Be you an electrician, a veterinarian, a technician or a plumber, we’re here to help you get fully acquainted with your infrared thermographer. With thorough thermal imaging training, you can learn the ins and outs of your infrared camera and thermography equipment, as well as how best to set it up for the perfect shot. 

We also teach you how to read your thermal imaging, an essential part of thermographic camera training. You’ll learn how to read the various colours and what they mean, and learn to discern heat sources and their severity. You’ll also learn the benefits of multiple sessions of thermal imaging, from when machinery is turned off, to turned on, to turned off again, to see how the machinery behaved throughout its operation.

End of the workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
