Category 1 Thermography Online training
Online Training sessions:
This Category 1 thermography course meets or exceeds the syllabus requirement as stated in the British
Institute of Non Destructive Testing CMGEN Appendix B syllabus and prepares you for qualification as
an ITC category 1 certified thermographer. You will learn about the basics of infrared, how to operate
the camera under different conditions and for various purposes, how to do an appropriate judgement of
the measurement situation in the field and identify potential error sources. You will be able to do IR
inspections following written guidelines and to report the result of this inspection.
Introduction to Thermography: History; benchmarks; applications including electrical,
Mechanical, Building, Medical and R&D. Camera technology overview from older scanning systems to modern day FPA’s. Explanation of camera operation and how the camera converts radiation into an image
Heat & Temperature: Heat and measurement; contact v non-contact temperature measurement. How radiation is converted into temperature and an introduction to heat transfer.
Infrared Theory Basics: Scientific Laws relating to : conduction, convection, radiation, blackbodies, Transmission Emissivity, Reflectivity & Calibration. Practical demonstration of these heat transfer modes with follow up theory
Measurement Techniques: Atmospheric & Environmental considerations including Distance, humidity, air temp and Reflected Apparent Temperature. How to measure them and setup the camera correctly
Basic Heat transfer theory: Temperature definition and measurement, thermodynamics, heat and temperature, heat transfer, conduction, convection and radiation.
Camera Measurement tools: A look at cross hair measurement, Area box/ circle, colour alarms and specific dew point and insulation alarms
Camera/Software familiarisation: Hands-on camera experience throughout the course. Camera practice using portable simulated labs; integration of images with Reporting software; creation of reports.
ITC Certification Test: ITC qualification (60 question multiple choice test) to be held on last day of course online via a secure platform.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Equipment / Material do I need to perform this from
he full training manual and presentation manual will be sent out via
Included in the package are 3 quiz papers we will do through the week as
well as an exam prep quiz.
How will the Practical Part of the Course be performed?
If an infrared camera is accessible, this will be an advantage, but we
do connect a FLIR T860 to stream live data to explain and show practical
If a camera is available, the attached workbook can be completed by the student and sent back to me for assessment (does not contribute to exam)
How will the Qualifying Exams be written?
On the last day of the course, an online secured platform will be used to write the exam, you will have 2 hours to complete and the instructor live on zoom for any assistance.
How long will this take to do from home?
We generally run from 9 am to 3 pm. Monday to Thursday and on Friday, revision is done before the exam.
Usually, everything is completed by 2 pm on the Friday.
