IR Training in Infrared Building Inspections


infrared building inspections


A thermal imaging building inspection course.


This Online Infrared Building Inspections IR training Course is a 18 hour course on theory and application in the use of IR  imaging to locate and evaluate energy loss and moisture problems within building envelopes and insulated roofing systems. This is an infrared building inspections certificate course that focuses on the two specific areas of moisture detection and building energy loss, but may be applied to the training requirements for thermographer certification.

This course covers infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, standards compliance, thermal imaging building inspection analysis and report generation. This IR training will enable you to identify and document thermal patterns caused by improper workmanship or material failure that should be added to your building safety inspection checklist and home inspections checklist alike.

Self directed learning activities are provided to help student gain practical experience and do not require an infrared camera to successfully complete this course.  While standard infrared building inspections topics are covered like thermal imaging building as part of energy survey, humidity temperature, measurement of humidity and moisture detection; This knowledge can be applied to some unique infrared thermography applications too ...

Pest inspections

Fire safety in buildings

Air leak test

Blower door testing

IR inspection of windows

Roof leak inspections

Mold detection

Missing insulation

... many more.


In summary this online IR training is focused on infrared building inspections, IR testing in energy surveys and thermal imaging building inspections, including pest inspections and other unique Infrared thermography applications. Infrared thermography applications that should be on both building and home inspections checklist.

"Excellent course to set up and manage a program for thermography! Just what an infrared training course should be." John Czaczkowski - Merck & Co., Inc.


"I have obtained training online in the past and this course was presented more clearly than any other online training I have taken. Navigation made reviewing easy. I was extremely pleased with my distance learning experience." Ron Sangiancomo - Risk Management Solutions


"This is a serious course, not a sales presentation. This course will prepare you as a thermographer." Mark Mader - Shermco Industries


"This course is a eye opener for the novice as well as the experienced. There are so many variables in this industry and this course puts most things in perspective." Craig Oliver - US Navy


"The course is complete, thorough and economical for the amount of material presented." Jerry Devine - Philadelphia Inquirer

"A lot of information presented that will be put in use from day 1 on the work site. It is presented in a way that makes it fun to learn." Nick Cerasi - Camden County MUA


"One-of-a-kind training such as this is not available elsewhere. Years and years of work, research, and hands-on have put together a viable educational package worth every cent!" Ken Overstreet - Lockheed Martin


"Great clarity of presentation – taught extremely well. You won’t get bored. You will have fun while learning. Opens many avenues you weren’t aware of." Hal McElroy - Insulating Coatings Corporation
