I-IRT Introduction to Thermography

I-IRT Introduction to Thermography (Perth)

Program Overview

Infrared Thermography analysis of radiant thermal energy (heat) emitted from surfaces, enables the early detection of faults in areas including electrical, mechanical, heavy mobile equipment, process and civil applications and is a critical tool in predictive maintenance programs.

There is much more to Infrared Radiation and Thermography than meets the eye. The I-IRT course is a 1-day classroom based introductory training course, that provides participants with awareness in key foundational areas of Infrared Thermography and its applications, in everyday language. Infrared Thermographic monitoring and inspection tasks, qualitative or quantitative, are only effective in detecting and assessing problems, avoiding common measurement and interpretation errors, and reducing risk, when personnel are aware, then properly trained to the level appropriate to the role(s) and objectives. This should include Awareness and/or ISO 18436 TCAT 1 Competency Based Training. The ISO 18436 Level 1 (TCAT 1) body of knowledge. Training and Certification programs are recommended as next steps for progressive, hands-on, competency-based, internationally recognised training and certification in Infrared Thermography.

Course Trainer

Our course trainer Bassim (Baz) Ismail has over 30 years of industry consulting and training experience in predictive maintenance and machine condition monitoring technologies including vibration analysis, infrared thermography, lubrication management and analysis, sound and ultrasound. The ISO 18436 Accredited TCAT courses in Condition Monitoring were introduced into Australia well over a decade ago by Baz. Having successfully trained and accredited thousands of industry delegates in Australia, maintaining excellent feedback and success rates
