Introduction to Thermography

Basic Thermal Imaging

£165 + VAT

1-Days | 6 CPD Hours

Delegates on this course will come away with a fundamental understanding of the techniques and technologies used in thermography, and will be able to start undertaking basic thermal imaging.


  • 1-Day beginner friendly course
  • Bring your own camera (optional)
  • Try out the latest infrared equipment
  • Discounts for multiple delegates
  • Yields a certificate of attendance


Aimed at those who want to start using thermography with buildings and services as part of their business activities, the Introduction to Thermography course gives the opportunity to try out a variety of equipment and cameras, and a chance to learn many of the common mistakes and pitfalls in thermography. Additionally, this course is appropriate for those wishing to practice with their own cameras in different situations, however owning your own thermal imaging camera is not essential.

  • Introduction to Thermography

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer discounts on multiple delegates?2017-01-24T11:09:51+00:00

Put simply, the more the merrier! The amount of discount we offer entirely depends on how many students you’re looking to put on one (or several) of our courses. If this is something you’re interested in, just get in touch and we’ll be able to give you a better idea of what savings you’d be looking at.

What should I bring?2017-01-24T11:09:06+00:00

Just yourself – we supply everything from training manuals and pens to lunch and refreshments. Some delegates choose to bring their own thermal imaging cameras to apply knowledge from our lessons in real-time, however this is by no means a requirement! As independent specialists we have a wide range of cameras for you to try and test. This gives you the chance to experience a variety of different brands, allowing you to make an informed purchasing decision when the time is right.

What’s the difference between iRed, ABBE, PCN, ASNT and ITC qualifications?2017-01-24T11:08:14+00:00

The main differences between the various different thermography qualifications available today is the associated assessment requirements, industry-recognition and their ability to fulfill scheme requirements such as providing a Home Quality Mark (ABBE Certificate) or a BREEAM credit (PCN Category 1 for data collection and PCN Category 2 for report analysis).

Thermography as an industry is rapidly growing, and new schemes and legislation are emerging as a response to increasing demand. It’s always a good idea to establish what you’re looking to do professionally and work out your required training from there. The team here at iRed are always happy to help, so if you need help finding the right course for you just give us a ring and one of our trained thermographers will be happy to guide you through our courses.

Are you accredited?2018-02-07T12:02:15+00:00

Absolutely! We are a BINDT approved training organisation (ATO) and an ABBE approved assessment centre. Our trainers are all UKTA approved thermographers, and all of our courses are CPD certified. In addition to this, we operate a Quality Management System in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001:2015, demonstrating our commitment to quality.

Why do I need training?2017-01-24T11:01:28+00:00

Thermal imaging cameras are not point-and-shoot. So many factors affect the output – including the nature of the subject, the ambient surroundings, the range of temperatures detected and even the choice of colour palette – that they are only useful in the hands of a trained thermographer.

How does a thermal imaging camera work?2017-05-25T13:42:23+00:00

Rather than using a CMOS or CCD detector which records different levels of a range of visible light colours, a thermal imaging camera uses a microbolometer array to accurately measure levels of infrared radiation across a scene. This temperature data is then processed to produce a thermal image (known as “thermogram”), which can then be very precisely quantified or measured.
