ITC Training


At the first opportunity a franchisee must complete and pass the Level 1 Thermography course held at The Infrared Training Centre (ITC) in Auckland or Melbourne before offering thermal imaging as a service. This is a 5 day course and the cost of attendance and participation (including travel, food and accommodation) must be met by the franchisee.


Level 1 Infrared Thermography Certification


Level 1 certification is the first of three levels of infrared training the ITC offers. Level 1 thermographers generally follow a written test procedure to evaluate specific types of equipment in their facility. They can operate their infrared cameras and software and identify and measure thermal anomalies based on thermal patterns, comparisons with similar equipment, and their own experience.
