15 Thermographers Earn Level II Certification

Mount Laurel, NJ  September 28, 2014 -- Fifteen thermographers from across the US recently completed the Level II Infraspection Institute Certified Infrared Thermographer® training course. Building upon information taught in Level I, Infraspection’s Level II course covers advanced infrared theory and imager operation with a focus on accurate non-contact temperature measurement. The course was taught by Jim Seffrin, Director of Infraspection Institute.

At the conclusion of the course, Mr. Seffrin had this to say: “We are very proud of our Level II graduates. These are folks that recognize that thermography is not a ‘simply point and shoot’ technology. Undertaking Level II training shows that they have made a commitment to broadening their knowledge and improving their skill sets.”

Infraspection’s Level II Certified Infrared Thermographer® training course covers advanced infrared theory, equipment calibration, error sources, cross-verification with contact thermometers, advanced equipment operation, use of windows and filters, assigning temperature limits and repair priorities, and quantitative report generation.

Course attendee Brad Costello stated, “Everything in the course was well organized and right on point.” Equally impressed was Troy Burk who offered the following: “Information is well presented making it easy to follow and understand.” Steve Burzi added, “5 Stars! I will recommend Infraspection Institute to anyone interested in infrared training.”

Jim Seffrin concluded by saying, “Achieving Level II certification is truly a milestone for any professional thermographer. Level II certification not only broadens a thermographer’s skill sets but can help to increase revenue. We wish to congratulate each of our Level II graduates and we look forward to supporting their future thermographic endeavors.”
