Level II Thermography is a 32 hour online course for the application of quantitative thermal imaging and temperature measurement for P/PM, Condition Monitoring, Quality Assurance, and Forensic Investigations.

This course covers advanced infrared theory, equipment calibration, error sources, cross-verification with contact thermometers, advanced equipment operation, use of windows and filters, assigning temperature limits and repair priorities, and quantitative report generation.

Self directed learning activities are provided to help student gain practical experience; however, one need not have a camera to successfully complete the course.

SRMP Approved Provider
Infraspection Institute is recognized by the Society for Maintenance & Reliability Professionals (SMRP) as an approved provider of continuing education and training aligned with key subject areas related to reliability and physical asset management.

Course tuition includes 24 hour access to all online course presentations, Student Reference Manual, online quizzes, self-directed field assignments, proof of course completion, and free ground shipping of course materials to the continental US. Student must complete training within 60 days of registration.

This course is eligible for 32 NETA Continuing Technical Development Credits (CTDs). NETA Certified Technicians (Level III and Level IV) are required to earn a minimum of 48 CTDs every three years to maintain their certification.

Course is approved by the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors for 32 hours of continuing education and meets the training requirements for their Infrared Certified professional designation and logo.

Course completion qualifies student to take the Infraspection Institute Certified Infrared Thermographer® exam. Exams are available at no charge at the end of regularly scheduled open enrollment classes or at our annual IR/INFO Conference. For a fee, exams may be taken via secure video link or at authorized testing centers.
