Thermographic Applications - Level II

WI332

This quantitative thermography course is designed for practicing thermographers interested in advancing their knowledge and capabilities. This class covers advanced theory and applications of infrared thermography in the preventive maintenance, quality assurance, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing of materials fields.

Course objectives

Participants will learn advanced heat transfer theory, calculation and determination of IR camera resolutions, non-destructive testing techniques, advanced camera settings and uses, obtaining reliable radiometric temperatures, and applications of quantitative thermography for maintenance and reliability. Objectives are measured through quizzes, homework assignments, a hands-on practical exam, an application specific written exam and a general written exam.

Recommended for

Personnel seeking to advance their knowledge in thermographic and infrared technology and inspections. This includes supervisors, maintenance and reliability engineers, electricians, mechanics, equipment operators, program managers, energy auditors and service company personnel who perform PDM, energy audits, or thermographic and infrared services for their clients. This is an advanced course and completion of Thermographic Applications - Level I is a prerequisite.
