Registration is $595 for all ZOOM classes. Registration for in-person Early Bird registrations, more than 30 days before the class is $595; $695 for in-person classes within 30 days (*** more information). The CRT class is geared to the new infrared camera owner and user and the course focuses on thermal imager use for Home & Building Inspectors. 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. Infrared is a powerful tool that helps you find, identify, quantify and communicate today what would be a much bigger issue to your customer tomorrow.

Certification – Attendees successfully completing all training course requirements, including a course examination, will receive confirmation as a Certified Residential Thermographer from one of the recognizing home inspector associations. Recognized by ASHI, CAHI, CREIA, GAHI, FABI, InterNACHI/TPREIA, MAHI, MeCHIPS, NCLHIA SEHI, OAHI, VAHI, WAHI. The CRT class is now approved in many licensing states for CE credits.

*** Some state continuing education credits and/or training locations impact whether an Early Bird discount can be offered. Confirm on the specific scheduled class registration page which will detail if the Early Bird is available.


“I took (the) CRT class at a conference.  Worth every penny!”  David Clegg

“I just completed Monroe Infrared’s two day Certified Residential Thermographer (CRT) class via Zoom. It was definitely worth the time and money. Bill is very knowledgeable and presented the course material in an understandable format. I highly recommend the course to all home inspectors.” Bob Hayes

“I’ve been waiting to take the CRT class at a location near me but jumped at the opportunity when it became available using Zoom. I don’t feel I missed the experience of “in person” sitting in a class room. I got the same material, got to ask the same questions, and had the same experience from the comfort of my own home. The information was better than I expected. I now feel comfortable pulling the infrared camera out in front of clients, and I know what I am talking about. Thank you for the awesome class!” Ryan Reichert

“The CRT class was great! The information was laid out in an easy to understand manner. We were able to take the class over Zoom which is not always offered. It really did seem like an in person experience. I would definitely recommend it to others.” Chuck Carpenter
