NDT CEBU Course : Level I Infrared Thermography Certification Course | June 17th -20th,2019| CEBUPHInquire Now
This 32 hour course for the application of qualitative thermal imaging is designed to meet and exceed the educational requirements for all global Thermography standards. Level 1 teaches the fundamentals infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, IR camera operation, condition monitoring (CM) and predictive maintenance (PdM) applications, image analysis and report generation. Students are trained to identify and analyze thermal patterns caused by improper design, workmanship or material failure. Applications from most industries are covered, so you will be able to perform inspections at your site on your equipment and processes. Specific applications include: electrical and mechanical systems, steam systems, process vessels, refractory, piping-above and underground, building façade and energy loss, moisture detection. To obtain maximum value from the infrared instrument, the course includes hands-on instrument operations teaching the basics of IR camera operation of your specific brand of infrared instrument. Owning an infrared camera is not required for attendance! But for learning, participants are encouraged to bring their own specific brand of camera to class. After completing this course and fulfilling the course requirements, the attendees will be prepared to handle most industrial infrared applications, be able to collect accurate data, interpret infrared images and properly document the findings.Who should take this course?
This course is for those with no prior experience and/or no formal training. This course is intended as an introduction for anyone using an infrared thermal imaging camera, or anyone interested in purchasing one.On-Site or Customized Training
On-site session at your facility is also available. Over 50% of our courses are performed at the customers’ site! If the above schedule doesn’t meet your facility’s needs please contact us for a customized training schedule.
Level I This course is designed to meet and exceed ASNT SNT-TC-1A. BINDT CM/IRT, the European standard and ISO. At the Institute, we understand the importance to attain a theoretical background to any technique prior to attempting to perform inspections. Once the technology and technique is fully understood, an in-depth results orientated program can be initiated. This course will present case studies that present real problems that the thermographer will experience in the field. To obtain maximum value from the infrared instrument, the course includes daily hands-on instrument operation that will teach the basics of the camera operation as well as the detailed operational features of your specific brand of infrared instrument.
Owning an infrared camera is not required for attendance1 but for learning participants are encouraged to bring their own specific brand of camera to class.
Applications from most industries will be covered, so you will be able to perform inspections at your site on your equipment and processes.

The Institute of Infrared Thermography (IRT) is the training division of the group of companies headed by the principle Mr. Ron Newport. The principle company, Global Condition Monitoring INC., provides training and education in Predictive Maintenance techniques as well as inspections and consulting services. His first company, Infraview Energy Analysis, was a successful IR inspection company that was started in 1977 at a time when thermography was virtually unknown for industrial applications. Ron has enjoyed a 35+ year career in Infrared Thermography and Predictive Maintenance. Today, he still performs inspections and training with partners around the world.
Mr Newport is an internationally acclaimed expert within the infrared industry and is recognised worldwide as the number one educator, developer, promoter of infrared thermography. He performed his first infrared course for Petrochemical Inspection Engineers from around the world in 1979. He was instrumental in developing the Level I and Level II courses. In 1984, he developed and conducted the first ever Level II thermography training course in the world.
