We have chosen the Seattle site with you the student in mind. When you come to our facility to train for infrared, you will be exposed to a large majority of the industries that utilize infrared technologies from Aerospace, Automotive, Construction and Building Technology, Culinary, Health Careers, Manufacturing and Product Service Technology.

You might be wondering why all this is important?

seattleEmerald’s infrared training curriculum will allow you to directly take your skills and through workshops we will provide hands on training in any of these disciplines on campus. All too often other training facilities do not have the practical applications that you can experience firsthand.

We teach both the theoretical as well as the practical applications of infrared inspections. While you are training with Emerald Infrared we provide continental breakfast, beverages and lunch Monday-Thursday with Fridays being for review and testing. As an added bonus when you train with Emerald Infrared we have specifically chosen our venues to be family friendly. Meaning, you will be in our customized classes and labs from 8am-5pm Monday-Thursday with a half day on Friday. This could be an ideal time to bring your loved ones or family and enjoy the splendor that the NW has to offer in the summer.
