Mitcham, Australia August 1, 2014 -- The Certified Infrared Thermographer’s Association (CITA) is currently offering free Affiliate membership to all graduates of the Infraspection Institute Certified Infrared Thermographer® program. Individuals may apply for membership at no charge by visiting the CITA website.
CITA founder, Brenton Ward, had this to say: “Since the 1990’s, infrared cameras and the practice of thermography have emerged as a valuable asset in the predictive maintenance tool kit. This specialized science has continually evolved with increasingly accurate sensors and more useful applications.”
“As the technology evolved it became apparent that a huge knowledge base was accumulating within the thermography community. It also became clear that thermographers who could perform meaningful, accurate inspections needed a way to differentiate themselves. The Certified Infrared Thermographer’s Association (CITA) was created to enable our members to access this knowledge base, and to provide them with a stamp of recognition for their professional qualifications.”
CITA provides a number of benefits for its members. The CITA online forum provides thermographers with a portal for accessing technical support, application support, thermographer registrar, opportunities for promotion and advertising, as well as keeping members up-to-date with the latest industry information and trends.
CITA’s certification program provides thermographers with access to ISO certification. Regularly scheduled training events provide additional opportunities for ongoing professional development.
