Here’s what some of our previous delegates have said about us.

“Thank you for your fantastic talk to our students. The feedback of your talk was great and students really enjoyed it. Some of them have already asked me about possibilities of doing projects with iRed.”

Dr. Hooshyar Assadullahi, University of Portsmouth

“Very good course, the instructor & staff are very knowledgeable and approachable. Would highly recommend this course for obtaining a detailed insight into thermography.”

Mark Polson, Perception Drones

“Thank you for one of the most effective courses I have attended. It was greatly appreciated the way you tailored the course to suit the knowledge, skills and experience of your attendees.”

Neil Eccles, Tata Steel

“Course very well ran – Normans knowledge is vast. Don’t buy a camera until you have done the course, we spent £5,000 on one that’s not fit for purpose!”

Paul Chivers, Dairy Crest

“I was very impressed by the approach developed by iRed for producing high resolution thermal images and it has encouraged me to read thermal images in a whole new way. I would highly recommend the training to others.”

“Found the thermography course very educational, well explained and complete with a bit of humor to make it more user friendly. The lecturer was well informed and could answer any question the group put to him. I would definitely recommend this course and I will be attending the next course in my development.”

“Before the course I thought I knew a bit about thermography – I was wrong. Very detailed sylabus, very well explained. Taxing at times but enjoyable.”

Mark Hayden, Dairy Crest

“A very well presented course, lots of information to take on board and some very good practical experiments to help.”

Alex Clare, W.T. Parker
