View more items in Building Science Training

This is a one-day introduction to the infrared camera and its basic usage.  It will provide the student with enough information in the operation of the camera, the building conditions needed to get an acceptable image, and how to identify a few of the various building failures.  There will be a mix of classroom and hands-in lab modules.

Each student should bring his/her own infrared camera for the hands on portion of the class. (We do have a few IR cameras for those who may not have access to a camera).

Registration begins at 8:00 am and class starts at 8:30 am. Lunch is provided.
