Description

ITC Thermography BasicsThis course is a more advanced introductory course in thermography and serves as an excellent, and recommended, addition to the infrared camera basics and infrared basics courses. Thermography involves more than just learning how to use an infrared camera. IR science, heat transfer, thermal tuning, and application knowledge are all essential subjects a thermographer must understand in order to properly interpret an image. This course is FREE.

This course will give the learner the basic information to understand these concepts.

Accreditation: 2.5 ITC Certification Renewal Credits, 2 RCI Continuing Educational Hours (CEHs)

Note: You can stop the course and re-enter exactly where you left off at a later time or day, you don't have to complete the course in one sitting.

Students' Course Rating: 4.6/5
