Thermography Training 

Elmhurst has partnered with iRed to deliver a three day Thermal imaging for Buildings training course. Those who attend this course will acquire the skills and knowledge to deliver thermal imaging heat loss inspections for domestic properties and commercial buildings. 

About Thermal Imaging Inspectors

Qualified Inspectors will have the skills and knowledge to thermally inspect and assess dwellings and commercial buildings against a pass/fail criteria, but they aren't permitted to carry out in-depth analysis of images. Using a quantitative procedure they will present the thermal condition of a building envelope to clients (as either pass, fail or refer) using traffic light indicators for effective visual impact.

About Thermal Imaging and Building Surveys

Infrared Thermography or thermal imaging surveys are commonly used to assess the integrity of building fabric in order to diagnose problem areas and potentially reduce energy costs/emissions. By using infrared thermal imaging technology, qualified Thermographers can quickly identify areas of missing or damaged insulation, and air leakage (heat loss) for an existing and new build property (during and after construction). In addition to this, thermal imaging is often cited as the best and only non-intrusive method of checking insulation.


Why become a Thermography Inspector?

Infrared thermography is regularly requested by property owners and contractors to check build quality and establish the root of any thermal anomalies/defects which could result in unwanted heat loss. More and more building specifications are including thermographic surveys within their schedules as a means of quality assuring a property.

As a qualified Thermography Inspector you can conduct these thermographic surveys to check the continuity and performance of insulation within a building.

Thermal Imaging for Buildings Training - delivered by iRED

Course Content:

This three day ABBE qualification course is suitable for all energy assessors, and professionals working within the Built Environment. A breakdown of each day can be found below:

Day 1

• Basics of Infrared Thermography
• Thermal Camera Set-Up
• Thermal Camera Operation

Day 2

• Building Fabric Applications
