WO CE58 - Thermography Level 1 Certification
This 4 day course is designed to increase the participants’ knowledge in regards to the application of qualitative thermal imaging and is designed to meet and exceed the educational requirements for all global Thermography standards. Level 1 teaches the fundamentals infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, IR camera operation, condition monitoring (CM) and predictive maintenance (PdM) applications, image analysis and report generation. Students are trained to identify and analyze thermal patterns caused by improper design, workmanship or material failure. Applications from most industries are covered, so you will be able to perform inspections at your site on your equipment and processes. Specific applications include: electrical and mechanical systems, steam systems, process vessels, refractory, piping-above and underground, building façade and energy loss, moisture detection. To obtain maximum value from the infrared instrument, the course includes hands-on instrument operations teaching the basics of IR camera operation of your specific brand of infrared instrument. Owning an infrared camera is not required for attendance! But for learning, participants are encouraged to bring their own specific brand of camera to class. After completing this course and fulfilling the course requirements, the attendees will be prepared to handle most industrial infrared applications, be able to collect accurate data, interpret infrared images and properly document the findings.
