Infrared Thermal Imaging Training Companies

If you want to become a qualified thermal imaging professional, NAIS recommends researching thermography training companies carefully as the quality varies widely. Some schools do not offer consumer protection, or do not specialize in infrared thermography training. Understand the tuition reimbursement procedure and refund policy before you enroll in any infrared training school. Make sure that the thermography training counts towards any continuing education requirements in your state including field experience or apprenticeships.

A qualified thermographer should have a minimum of Level 1 Thermographer Certification that meets the recommended practices section, SNT-TC-1A, of The American Society of Nondestructive Testing, Inc. The thermographer should also have the ability to provide reports in multiple formats.

NAIS-Accredited Infrared Thermal Imaging Training

The organizations below are NAIS-accredited* training providers that count towards the education requirement for NAIS membership. NAIS-accredited training providers who also participate in NAIS's Gold-Level program are eligible to provide free 1-year NAIS memberships to their graduates. If you are considering an infrared training course, ask the provider if they have applied to become an NAIS-accredited training provider. Applicants for membership who do not meet the NAIS-accredited education requirement must qualify with documented thermal imaging survey experience.

*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.
