Thermal / Infrared Testing Level 1 & Level 2

Level I Infrared Certification Course Summary

Decibel's Infrared Certification courses are designed to meet and exceed SNT-TC-1A recommended practices. A theoretical background is a must for understanding the real-world problems that face thermographers in the field today. This theoretical background training will be combined with hands-on operator training. This combination will teach not only the basics of system operation, but also the finer points of your specific thermal imager, in order to allow you maximum usage from your infrared instrument. The principles behind most industries’ main applications will be taught. In addition, students will learn the techniques and reporting procedures necessary to put together an effective predictive maintenance program.

We can provide Thermal/Infrared Inspections Training courses and examinations suitable for the following certification scheme.

  • SNT-TC-1A in accordance with your/our company written practice

Also we can provide

  • Preparation training for ASNT Level 3
