Infrared Thermography Testing Level 2

Why attend this course:

This course provides detailed theoretical and practical information on thermographic techniques. Candidates will use their own equipment to inspect electrical, mechanical or civil items for predictive maintenance applications or for specific NDT applications. Courses can be run at our training centres or on-site at client’s facilities.
