Training For Infrared 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 practicioners. 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.

Listed below are most, if not all, of the companies that offer training programs in North America. If your organization belongs here, let us know to help us get you listed. We especially are seeking training listing for countries outside North America since this web site has a wide international distribution.
