I am in the process of gathering information now and will certainly need classes and education.

Everyone else... Are you all doing IR as an add-on ancillary service or included w/ inspections?
Most do it for free. Many of those have it priced correctly for the value provided. For some, that's overpriced.

IMO: to do it competently requires a significant investment in training, thermography equipment, ancillary equipment, time on site and time reporting, not to mention an increase in liability because you are now operating beyond the HI SOP and visual, non-expert inspection protocols.

As a business owner, If I'm going to take all of that on. I'm going to be paid for it.
