Thermal imaging is getting smarter. Even troubleshooting infrared cameras have standard features that were once only the preserve of top-of-the-range models. Sophisticated user interfaces allow simple point and shoot operation. One click saves the image in a variety of modes, complete with embedded thermal data for subsequent analysis.
Essentially this is good news but, although the technology is exceptionally easy to apply, the need for training is more important than ever. It is vital that the camera user understands the science behind thermal imaging. Without it, thermal images are virtually meaningless and findings are at risk of serious misinterpretation.
FLIR Systems Infrared Training Centre (ITC) is an accredited authorised training organisation for the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing and it has just confirmed its programme for 2019 that spans three levels of certified competence; Categories I, II and III. The course duration for Category I and III is four days and for Category II it’s five days.
A new three-day course for Optical Gas Imaging has also been introduced to this year’s programme in response to a growing interest in the use of infrared to pinpoint the source of industrial gas leaks.
