Now you can receive the world’s best infrared education without leaving your home or office.

Our online distance learning thermography courses enable you to take your infrared education wherever and whenever it’s convenient for you.

With distance learning, you get the same quality course content for which we are famous.

  • We utilize state-of-the-art web servers and dynamic multimedia resources to provide a unique, quality educational experience.

  • Our distance learning courses are based upon our Level 1, 2, and 3 courses and meet all ASNT training requirements for the certification of NDT personnel.

  • All courses are taught by Level 3 Certified Infrared Thermographers™, each having over 20 years of professional experience.

  • The distance learning courses are divided into narrated one-hour online infrared lecture education units allowing you to work at a pace that’s convenient for you.

  • Each course unit is designed to build upon the previous units of the course.

  • You may return to individual course units at any time for review.

    All distance learning courses include:

  • Printed Reference Manual
  • Multi-Question Online Quizzes for each Course Unit
  • Exception® Report Generation Software
  • Regularly Scheduled Interactive Sessions with Level 3 Instructors
