This 4 day course, with review and optional exam, will prepare you for life as an infrared thermographer. You will learn the fundamentals of infrared energy and the camera, and you will learn about the most common applications.
With the assistance of the Mobius Institute interactive simulations, 3D animations, and case studies, you will not be required to have a great memory to learn all of the facts and concepts, instead you will understand the ‘science’ of infrared thermography, you will understand how the camera functions (and thus how to collect good data the first time), and you will learn about the mechanical and electrical failure modes of plant equipment so that you can accurately and confidently detect and diagnose a wide range of fault conditions. You will come away from the course with the knowledge and confidence to be successful as an infrared thermographer.
Once you complete the training you will be eligible to take the exam to become certified by the internationally renowned Mobius Institute Board of Certification [MIBoC] to ISO 18436-7 Category I. To be certified, you will need to achieve a minimum score of 75% of the 50 questions. The MIBoC certification is one of the only international programs accredited to ISO/IEC 17024 – there is no higher standard in condition monitoring certification. You will also need to pass the Ishihara color perception test, also known as the color vision test, to measure your ability to tell the difference between colors. The Ishihara test checks for red-green color blindness.
Exam Information: Optional certification examination is available after course completion on the last day of the training.
Please note: 12 months of experience is also required for ISO certification.
