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
