Training Program Providers For (IR) Thermographers
The practice of Infrared Thermography has been recognized by The American Society for Non-destructive Testing, ASNT. They have defined skill levels, written a Handbook, administer skills testing and certify several skill levels of practitioners.
The actual training and refresher skills programs are provided by private training organizations. Some offer their own certifications, but the ones that appear to count to the companies that most utilize them are the ones that prepare individuals for the ASNT exams in the USA.
