“ I took the CRT class from Monroe Infrared. Being a home inspector I found the course excellent, all the information geared towards our industry. Bill was a great instructor, professional and always happy to answer all questions. I recommend any Home inspectors looking to get into thermography to take the CRT course”
” Robert Zorzan, Suburban Home Inspection LLC
“I just want to tell you that the Certified Residential Thermographer class was fantastic. Bill’s knowledge of the subject matter and equipment was clear and concise. I feel more confident about thermography and look forward to higher level training in the future.”

Geared to the new infrared camera user and camera owner, this course focuses on thermal imager use for Home & Building Inspectors, IAQ, Remediation, Restoration and Remodeling Professionals also. Attendees successfully completing all training course requirements and a course examination can receive confirmation as a Certified Residential Thermographer.
Students complete the course with a much stronger understanding of Thermal Imaging capabilities and applications as well as the confidence and competence to immediately put that knowledge to use. Customers are getting smarter and expecting Home Inspectors and Residential Building Professionals to utilize all the tools available to provide them the best information available. Not being able to see with your eyes what the infrared camera can show you is no longer acceptable. Infrared is a very powerful tool that helps you find and identify today what could be a much bigger issue to your customer (or your customer’s customer) tomorrow.
