Default "Infrared Thermography Inspection Training" video course

This thread is dedicated exclusively for those students currently enrolled in the InterNACHI online video course titled, "Infrared Thermography Inspection Training."

Students are free to pose questions and comments here and join in the conversation with other students. The thread will be monitored by the course instructor.

The goal of this course is to teach home inspectors about infrared thermography and its applications for inspecting residential properties.

And, in keeping with InterNACHI's commitment to Continuing Education, this course is open and free to all members, and can be taken again and again, without limit.

Contact: Director of Education, Ben Gromicko ben@internachi.org

There is no law in north america that says you have to be certified to use an IR camera anywhere.

Certification is simply a school stating you have achieved a certain level of education or training. It gives you no legal standing (especially when none is required). It does not make you an expert, no matter what school you attend.

Certification does not mean "licensed". License means that a gov't body has given you permission to operate within their jurisdiction.

BTW... there is no license required to use and IR camera either.

The course is "certified" (Self Certified).

You will not be a "Certified Thermographer" so don't advertise that you are.

There are "Certified Thermographer's" in the world, but none here...

If U advertise that you are Certified, it is the same as claiming your have a PhD.
IAW ASTNT Certification is written testimony of qualification. Your course may be certified, but you are not.

BINDT certifies in PCN and ASNT offers Level III Thermographer Certification in NDT and PdM.

Yes I know those requirements but my question was asking is the Johns course free now? Does this 3 hour video equate to his course? Is it free for members?

I think I would be a little more interested in whether or not the course provided adequate training than some logo to plaster on a website.

There's a lot of stuff on the Internet that's free that we used to have to pay for.

John still charges (a reduced rate this month) for that same information...

Get on his mailing list!

No, our IR class is not free. The 3 hr video class does not take the place for a more intense thermography class (12 hours IR required - see last condition)

Our IR class is 16 hrs and much more intense.

No, our live 16 hour IR class is not the same information as the 3 hour video class.
The 3 hour video class Ben is speaking of is a good primer and will help new students.

I have completed both level I and level II Thermography. Is there a challenge test or do I still have to take the course?
