As the founder of Emerald Infrared Training Institution I have been actively involved in the building trades and infrared camera inspections for most of my life. My personal viewpoint is that we have formed Emerald Infrared around you. I have been exposed to many types of training programs over the years and the emphasis was not on the student. I do not want to hype up your expectations on training. It is very simple, take a Level l course, and become exposed to the world of infrared. As you continue in your professional occupation take more courses. Increase your awareness with infrared and its many uses. I personally talk to people every day and when infrared is mentioned more times than not they ask – what is infrared? Therefore I have outlined 25 professions that can benefit by the use of infrared. At Emerald we do not profess to be everything in infrared training to everyone, we are really great at giving you the information in a practical and theory based application and making it fun. As you become more involved with infrared there are various specialty classes you can take. For now – get in – get involved and learn the exciting world of Infrared Inspections.
