Fundamentals of Thermal Imaging

Working around any machinery or live electrical work is inherently dangerous.  Fundamentals of Thermal Imaging is recommended for anyone already conducting, or planning to conduct thermal surveys. Learn how thermal imaging technologies can uncover impending failures or dangerous situations that left unchecked, could lead to lost production or serious injury.


Goals and Objectives

In this class, learn the basic concepts of thermal imaging, including:

  • The basic operation of common thermal cameras
  • How thermal imaging can be applied in a production setting
  • How to conduct a thermal inspection safely
  • The requirements for becoming a Level I Certified Thermographer
  • Fundamentals of Thermal Imaging
  • Introduction to Thermal Imaging
  • How thermal imaging is used around the world
  • Thermal energy, temperature, heat, emissivity and reflectivity
  • Basic thermal camera functions and abilities
  • Measuring temperature and emissivity
  • Basic applications in manufacturing and food processing
  • Identifying hazards when conducting thermal surveys
  • Professional certification – Becoming a Level 1 Certified Thermographer

New and existing staff required to do maintenance on buildings and equipment.
