Introduction to Thermal Imaging Training Course
Duration: 1 day
The half-day course can be expanded to a full day in one of two ways –
1. Additional time to consolidate the information acquired in the morning and further practice on the Thermography process
2. Product training on the delegate’s own Thermal Imaging Camera
Price explained: Thermal Imaging Training for up to 6 people (if you have fewer or more people call us for pricing)
The price shown is the base price for up to 6 attendees where courses are delivered at our Staffordshire base.

What will I learn:
Temperature is a key measurement in virtually every situation and process. More and more people are recognising the advantages of using a thermal imaging camera as a safe and rapid means of monitoring the condition of processes and equipment by using this non-contact method. Using up-to-date thermal cameras and software, delegates will learn how to capture and analyse a thermal image then report their findings.
The course begins with a simple definition of thermography and looks at a number of different and proven workplace applications to illustrate its benefits. We will explain the thermal camera’s components and give guidance on how to capture a quality thermal image.
There will be plenty of opportunity for ‘hands on’ work, reinforcing the information contained within the course literature. You will learn the fundamentals of thermal image acquisition and analysis, providing you with the choice of making an ‘on the spot’ analysis or undertaking a more detailed investigation using the manufacturer’s software.
