ITC Level 2 Thermography Course

ITC - Level 2 ThermographyITC_logo

The five day level 2 training course prepares you for qualification as a level 2 certified Thermographer.

You will learn about topics in Infrared Thermography to both deepen and broaden your knowledge about infrared physics, heat science, infrared measurement equipment and its application. As a Level 2 Thermographer you shall provide guidance to category 1 personnel in the areas of equipment selection, techniques, limitations, data analysis, corrective actions and reporting.

In order to attend a Level 2 Thermography Course, you shall

  • hold a valid Level 1 Thermography certificate.
  • prepare a case study to be presented at the Level 2 course and submittedtowards qualification at course closing. Details and guidelines on the case studywill be issued 2-3 weeks prior to the course start date.

ITC Level 1 Thermography Course

ITC - Level 1 Thermography Course ISO18436 PCNITC_logo

ITC offers certification training to recognised standards and is an accredited Authorised Training Organisation (ATO) for the British Institute of Non Destructive Testing (BINDT) as per the requirements of ISO 18436. BINDT is an accredited certification body offering personnel certification against criteria set out in International and European standards. This course prepares you for qualification as a category 1 certified thermographer. You will learn about the basics of infrared, how to operate the camera under different conditions and for various purposes, how to do an appropriate judgement of the measurement situation in the field and identify potential error sources. You will be able to do IR inspections following written guidelines and to report the result of this inspection.

Introduction to Thermography:

Heat & Temperature:

Heat and measurement; contact v non-contact temperature measurement. How radiation is converted into temperatureand an introduction to heat transfer.

Infrared Theory Basics:

Scientific Laws relating to : conduction, convection, radiation, blackbodies, Transmission Emissivity, Reflectivity &Calibration. Practical demonstration of these heat transfer modes with follow up theory.

Measurement Techniques:

Atmospheric & Environmental considerations including Distance, humidity, air temp and Reflected Apparent Temperature. How to measure them and setup the camera correctly.

Basic Heat transfer theory:

Temperature definition and measurement, thermodynamics, heat and temperature, heat transfer, conduction, convectionand radiation.

Camera Measurement tools:

A look at cross hair measurement, Area box/ circle, colour alarms and specific dew point and insulation alarms.

Camera/Software familiarisation:

Hands-on camera experience throughout the course. Camera practice using portable simulated labs; integration of images with Reporting software; creation of reports.

ITC Certification Test:

ITC qualification (50 question multiple choice test) to be heldon last day of course.

BINDT Certification Exam optional:
