Classes normally run from 8am to 5pm. Specifics of where each class will be held are provided to registered students 4 weeks in advance of the training. If a minimum of 8 students are not registered 3 weeks prior to training that particular class may be cancelled and rescheduled. When registering be sure to identify which class you are planning to attend.

You DO NOT need to own an IR camera to attend!!  We encourage all inspectors who do not own an IR camera yet to ATTEND CLASS FIRST and then decide which one is best for them.  You can try out our demo cameras during class to help you learn and decide, too.

This class is geared to the new infrared camera user and veteran camera owner as well.  The course focuses on thermal imager use for Residential and Building Inspection Professionals.  Attendees who are also FABI and/or NAHI members successfully completing all training course requirements and a course examination will 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 in use.  Customers (primarily real estate agents) are getting smarter and expecting Home Inspectors to utilize the best tools available to provide them the highest quality inspection.  Owning and UNDERSTANDING HOW TO USE an Infrared Camera is quickly becoming as expected and standard for Home Inspectors as using a Moisture Meter!  Not being able to see with your eyes what the infrared camera can show you is no longer acceptable.  Infrared is a powerful tool that helps you find today what could be a much bigger issue tomorrow and can help you STAND OUT as a valuable resource and partner to your customers.
