About the iRed Academy

Qualifications from the UK’s leading infrared academy

The iRed Academy is the UK’s leading provider of ISO certified thermal imaging training in infrared thermography and remote sensing. Academy courses are specifically tailored to support the professional development of both newcomers to industry and delegates with more experience.

In operation since 2002, even before thermography had been accepted as a mainstream inspection tool, iRed has always used the newest techniques, technologies and industry practices to deliver thermal analysis solutions to clients throughout the UK and around the world.

The iRed Academy’s team of instructors has been teaching those same techniques, technologies and industry practices to thermography students since 2005, constantly updating course content to keep up with ever-changing commercial needs.

iRed is CPD certified, and approved as a training organisation by:


The Awarding Body of the Built Environment (ABBE) is an Ofqual-regulated organisation which ensures high standards of assessment throughout the UK. The Academy is an ABBE-approved assessment centre.


The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is the main provider of internationally recognised thermographic qualifications which can only be obtained from PCN Authorised Qualifying Bodies, which include the iRed Academy.
