The Snell Group

Infrared training provides the necessary foundation for the success of any thermographer and their program.

Properly trained and qualified IR technicians provide companies with a greater return on their investment and, more importantly, avoid the liability associated with unqualified work. For service / inspection companies, taking an infrared training course from The Snell Group will allow you to quickly grasp important concepts, camera operation and inspection techniques that will allow you to deliver high-quality infrared inspections to your customers.

Whether you already own equipment or are considering purchasing a thermal imager, Snell infrared thermography training meets the infrared certification needs of our customers. We suggest you consider all of our training opportunities available through a variety of infrared classes.

Level 1 trainingLevel 2 training, Level 3 training and specialty Snell infrared training classes are scheduled worldwide on a regular basis through both Snell Infrared and Snell Infrared International. We also offer customized on-site infrared courses that can be arranged to meet the needs of your operations and facility. Additionally, we have electronic web-based seminars available that provide another supplemental learning opportunity for those are new to the technology and want to learn more, or that have already taken Snell thermography classes or classes from other organizations.

Our infrared thermography classes are led by The Snell Group instructors who together have hundreds of years of combined experience and knowledge in the industry.

These infrared thermography class trainers know how to teach and effectively present information ensuring you will leave the course knowing the techniques necessary to gain the greatest benefits from thermal imaging. All Snell infrared classes get high marks from all the students. Whether it is a regularly scheduled public infrared class or a customized infrared course - and whether your educational needs are for industrial maintenance, building thermography or nondestructive testing - each class utilizes our innovative and personalized approach to infrared training. Along with this industry leading training we are able to fully support our student’s infrared thermography certification needs and can respond to your particular interests, application questions and equipment inquiries to ensure your long-term success with the technology.

Level 1 training

A 32 hour class covering the theory and applications of infrared thermography in the preventive maintenance, quality assurance, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing of materials fields. This class focuses on qualitative thermography and how to collect data and follow proven and published inspection procedures. Upon completion students will be able to capture clear thermograms and make basic inferences and diagnosis.

Level 1 material includes infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, operation of thermal imaging equipment and specific recommendations on how to make quality thermal images that are clear, concise and easy to interpret. Students are challenged daily with hands on demonstrations, experiments and inspection situations similar to those they will experience in their work. Students leave Snell training ready to put this amazing technology to work.

This course fully meets the educational requirements for certification in accordance with Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A, as defined by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing.

An overview of the most common applications include:

  • Electrical distribution systems
  • Mechanical systems
  • Steam systems
  • Refractories
  • Underground piping
  • Active thermography
  • Building envelopes
  • Low-slope roofs
  • Nondestructive testing of materials

Students learn the basic inspection techniques based on accepted industry and international inspection procedures.

The course is open to everyone regardless of whether or not they own a thermal imager. Attendees that do have equipment are encouraged to bring their systems as there are a number of hands-on learning opportunities available during the week.


Level 2 training

Prerequisite: Level 1 - Thermographic Applications

A 32-hour quantitative thermography class designed for practicing thermographers interested in advancing their knowledge and capabilities. This class covers advanced theory and applications of infrared thermography in the preventive maintenance, quality assurance, condition monitoring and nondestructive testing of materials fields.

Level 2 focuses on radiometric temperature measurement and how taking accurate temperatures improves the diagnosis and interpretation of thermal situations. The course delves deeply into the concepts of emissivity, reflected temperature compensation as well as spatial and measurement resolution. Other topics include: inspecting though transmissive films and windows and the use and limitations of IR mirrors.

The Level 2 course extends the knowledge gained in Level 1 on infrared theory and heat transfer concepts. Students leave aware of the full operational capabilities of their radiometric thermal imaging equipment and are challenged daily with hands on demonstrations, experiments and inspection situations similar to those they will experience in the field.

This course fully meets the educational requirements for certification in accordance with Recommended Practice No. SNT-TC-1A, as defined by the American Society for Nondestructive Testing.

The class is open to everyone regardless of whether or not they own a thermal imager. Attendees that do have equipment are encouraged to bring their systems as there are a number of hands-on learning opportunities available during the week.


Level 3

Prerequisite: Level 2 - Advanced Infrared Thermography

This course is the final but essential educational step for professional infrared thermographers. It is intended for those who manage thermography programs, have completed Level 2 training and have at least two years of practical experience behind a camera.

Level 3 is a highly interactive training class focused on professional growth and is relevant to both in-plant personnel responsible for thermographic programs and infrared consultants that offer inspection services. Attendees will learn about all aspects of successful infrared programs, including:

  • Reviewing industry best practices
  • Learning national and international standards
  • Establishing written practices and procedures
  • Setting up personnel certification

An in-depth review of IR theory and heat transfer along with a presentation and discussion of all available methods of temperature measurement will provide students with the knowledge to match the right tool to the job at hand.

This course will also help prepare students who intend to take the ASNT Level 3 T/IRT exam. If you intend to use this class as part of your preparation for the ASNT Level 3 exam, we recommend you obtain several reference books prior to this course. Please contact The Snell Group for a list of these recommended titles.
