FLIR Systems, Inc. has expanded its 2007 offerings for the fully certified infrared training courses offered by its dedicated Infrared Training Center (ITC). Continuing to keep up-to-date with the latest in technology and market trends, the ITC has added new courses to its schedule including RTools for SC6000/4000 and IR Thermography for Weatherization. The ITC will offer courses at its headquarters in North Billerica, Massachusetts, just a few miles north of Boston, and in cities throughout the United States and Canada. The ITC’s 2007 schedule of courses through December is available online at www.infraredtraining.com/courses/course_calendar.asp.

The Infrared Training Center also sponsors the InfraMation conference, the world’s largest infrared applications conference for professional thermographers, held Oct. 15-19 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This annual educational event features user-led presentations on infrared applications, practical “how-to” infrared clinics, panel discussions moderated by infrared experts, networking opportunities with industry leaders, and relevant exhibits.

All ITC Course Certifications meet or exceed ASNT (American Society for Non-Destructive Testing) SNT-TC-1A guidelines. Level I and Level II courses are recognized by the InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA), an accredited standards developer for the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

ITC is the only ISO-9001 certified infrared training organization worldwide and the only factory-authorized training organization for FLIR, Agema, and Inframetrics cameras. ITC is the single largest employer of instructors who are ASNT, NDT and PdM TIR Level III certified. All ITC instructors have extensive IR knowledge and field experience.
