The Institute of infrared Thermography is one of the foremost providers of infrared Thermography Training in the world! We’re flexible and can deliver the training you and your company requires. Where and when you need it. IRT... providing education and training courses of all types internationally since 1984!

The Level II Course follows the ASNT recommended course curriculum, and will be conducted in accordance with ASNT-TC-1A, SNTC outline and procedures for LII.

Level II

The Level II Infrared thermography training course is designed for practicing Level I thermographers who are interested in advancing their inspection skills and application knowledge. Where Level 1 concentrated on Qualitative thermography, Level 2 is focused on Quantitative; temperature, emissivity and transmissivity and the use of information (definitions, equations, tables etc...) available to thermographers. Advanced theory, applications, equipment operations, thermal analysis and inspection techniques, marketing, plus much more, is presented in a simple, easy to learn, hands-on fashion. This hands-on course will assist you to strengthen and improve thermography skills for condition monitoring and nondestructive testing applications for improved accuracy and diagnosis.
