If you want to expand your thermal testing business to include infrared moisture surveys, this course is for you. Hidden water damage or moisture can lead to extensive structural damage or microbial growth, and offering this service to customers can help them stop such issues before they become bigger problems, or pinpoint existing problem areas. For those engaged in repair efforts, attempting mold remediation or writing mold remediation protocols, or documenting expensive water damage claims for insurance policies, a professionally performed infrared moisture survey report can be invaluable.
This infrared training course will instruct you in the proper use and operation of infrared cameras, how to carry out thermal surveys, and the methods used when investigating and positively identifying moisture using infrared imaging. You will also learn the correct procedures relating to preparing and delivering a professional infrared moisture survey report to your clients after the inspection. It is recommended, but not required, that you have the Level 1 Thermographer certification before taking this course. An infrared camera is not required to take this course.
