Infrared Inspections in Electrical Tests


thermal imaging surveys


Infrared inspections & electrical tests online certificate course.


Infrared Inspections in Electrical Tests training online is a 16 hour course on theory and application in the use of thermal imaging to locate and evaluate problems in electrical distribution systems. This is a certificate course that focuses on this single application, 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 analysis and report generation. Infrared inspections are an important part of electrical test for existing electrical systems and new electrical installation testing.

Self directed learning activities are provided to help student gain practical experience and do not require an infrared camera to successfully complete this course.


This online course trains you to identify and document thermal patterns caused by improper design, workmanship or material failure. Perform quality assurance thermal imaging surveys and inspections of new installations or retrofits. This infrared training online course is great for infrared home inspections and thermal imaging surveys of home electrical installation too. This IR training online is a great way to expand your company's electrical inspection services

"This course is going to completely change the way I do my job. Heavy industry predictive maintenance was a struggle. With the tools we picked up from this class, that struggle should diminish greatly. We will expect to greatly lower our unexpected failures. Thanks!" Dennis Somerder - Kennecott Energy


"Treat this course as mandatory for those employees operating cameras and obtaining images. Don’t attempt in-house training or certification." Ed Cavey - Detroit Edison


"A very useful course that gives real credibility to an infrared program and is the best of all other courses I have reviewed." Richard Saint Aubyn Johnson - Jamaica Public Service Company


"This course exceeded my expectations. Very detailed and thorough. Course was very helpful and gave me a better understanding of infrared. Great course!" Jerry Zajac - Detroit Edison


"The information in this class is amazing. If you want a class that will give you a good understanding of IR technology, this is the class." Lori Smith - Marietta Power
