Online — IR Inspection of Electrical Systems is a two-day theory and application course at the Infraspection Institute for the use of thermal imaging to locate and evaluate problems in electrical distribution systems.
This is a non-certification course that focuses on this single application. Course attendance may be applied to training requirements for thermographer certification.
Infraspection offers both a classroom course (http://infraspection.com/courses_inspect_electrical.html) and an online learning program for this specific application (http://infraspection.com/courses_dl_inspect_electrical.html).
The Snell Group also runs a similar applications course that runs for two days and recommends that students learn their Level 1 fundamentals as a balanced prerequisite. (http://thesnellgroup.com/infrared-courses).
The Infrared Training Center (ITC) offers a similar program, also a two day course. Visit IR Electrical Inspection Training online at: http://courses.infraredtraining.com/index.cfm?action=registration.schedule&courseId=4.
They also offer a free, introductory webinar on this application, Introduction to IR for Electrical Applications”. Their webinars webpage will lead one to a registration form, but that’s the only “charge”, as far as we can find (http://www.infraredtraining.com/view/?id=60710#recorded).
Join them for an introduction to IR for electrical applications. This webinar will provide an overview of how thermographers are using infrared to detect electrical faults early reducing downtime and saving money.
Others offer similar training and information about this specialty application of Infrared Thermal Imaging. Recently Fluke Corporation’s Thermography Product Specialist, Tony Shockey, wrote an introductory article on this application in the ISA’s InTech Magazine. It is free and online at www.isa.org/intech/2016206
