Thermography Training

“The (NEW 3-day Advanced Building Thermography) course was brilliant.  The instructor was spot-on – really good. Literature was superb – easy to read and well laid out – 5stars!”.  

We provide thermal camera training to individuals and companies. Our thermography training courses include an Introduction to Thermography, Applied Thermography Training or Level 1 courses in accordance with ISO 18436/7.

Please do see some more testimonials from trainees here – they are worth more than our own claims!

The basis of our training is experience. We “preach what we practice”.  Our training includes Level 1 training in accordance with ISO 18436/7 requirements and we specialise in applied building thermography training based on experience of surveying UK buildings. What is more – we are independent of camera manufacturers and salesmen so we can give you unbiased advice on what brand and type of camera to buy, dependent on your specific needs.

Our experience in providing BREEAM thermographic surveys, working on residential and commercial buildings looking for  heat loss, diagnosing plumbing and HVAC systems, scanning solar farms and of course tracing water leaks through the building envelope as well as from systems inside qualifies us to teach from personal experience. Our engineering background runs back over 25 years to where we first used thermography in Research and Development activities in the UK and Germany. We therefore have a strong technical understanding as well as practical building thermography experience from new builds, maintenance, renovations and historic building diagnostics.   The unique structure of our applied thermography training built around UK construction case studies separates us from anything else. So whether you are a beginner, or have a little experience or are an experienced thermographer wanting to now learn about the unique world of building thermography, we have something for you.
