The National Association of Infrared Surveyors (NAIS), was established in response to the need for national
guidelines for infrared surveyors. As infrared camera technology has advanced and become more affordable, infrared
surveys have begun to overlap with many other inspection services. With no state or federal guidelines for infrared
testing, private organizations such as NAIS have taken the initiative in establishing best practices for infrared
In 2007, the National Association of Infrared Surveyors (NAIS) was established through efforts by the non-profit
North American Association of Home Inspectors, Inc. (AHI), to promote a code of ethics and standards for thermal
surveys and to promote professionalism among the experienced and developing thermographers who engage in the profession
each year. With a rapidly growing international membership, NAIS has become an important voice in the thermal testing
Our mission is as follows:
1. To advocate uniform standards of practice for infrared surveys.
2. To enforce a sensible code of ethics that educates and protects consumers
3. To promote educational opportunities for infrared thermographers.
4. To provide professional development and networking opportunities for members.
5. To provide the above services at a reasonable price.
*To become an NAIS-accredited training provider, a thermal imaging training school must submit an application to
NAIS for approval. Applicants are required to have one visit to the training site; a review of the curriculum,
enrollment and company structure, be authorized or licensed by its state post-secondary education governing body
and not facing disciplinary action; be insured and bonded; have been in continuous operation as a thermal imaging
school under the same ownership for at least 10 years; be an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau with
a satisfactory complaint history; and employ instructors who hold valid thermography certifications for the training
that is conducted. Accreditation is renewed every 3 years. Note that the application processing fee, which includes
travel expenses, background checks and administrative fees, is based upon the thermal imaging training center's
average annual enrollment and is not refundable.
