Building Thermography Category 1
Professional Thermal Imaging Course for the Built Environment
Industry-recognised thermal imaging qualification, designed for surveying domestic properties.
The Building Thermography Category 1 course delivers the necessary knowledge and practical skills to set up in business as a residential infrared thermographer.
The course focuses on the construction and pathology of houses within the context of thermal imaging, and includes a practical surveying exercise where delegates prepare for, carry out and report on a thermal imaging survey of a local building.
ISO 6781 Certification (+ £840.00)
ISO 6781 certification – also known as the ABBE Certificate in Domestic Thermography qualification – is awarded by the Awarding Body of the Built Environment (ABBE). This requires delegates to attend the Building Thermography Category 1 course and submit a portfolio of coursework (including 3 thermal imaging reports and associated documents) for assessment.
Delegates looking to become accredited to an ISO standard under this scheme will also have to sit two externally assessed exams, both of which are included within the course fee.
For delegates achieving the optional ISO 6781 certification, this course will enable them to undertake Home Quality Mark thermal imaging surveys in accordance with BRE requirements.
