How to start a career in the IR Branch IRvirgin 1/24/2007
I am really interested in getting into the IR industry and start my own company specializing in home energy saving solutions. I have never held a IR camera and i have no background in building industry but i am willing to jump in the deepend.

I know this seems a crap question to ask experts but i really find this an interesting industry :-) plus i am sick of my office job. I am based in Sweden so if someone has european tips that would be super.

Thanks

Before you do IR you need to be skilled in what you are shooting in other words if you are a building guy than concentrate on that subject.This is only a tool a very powerfull tool that enhances things to the nth degree.
Pictures are awsome but the pics need to be understood .This tool has sparked a lot of interest but like any other tool you need to know what it can and can't do.Don't get me wrong this is a great industry and there is plenty of room for eager thermographers, just put education first not the pictures.

Thanks Cannman,

Its seems that i need to get a Level 1 Thermographer before i start in the branch? Please could you give me some information on how you started in this Branch?

If i invest in a camera what is the best brand? and what model would you recommend for house surveying. I have checked out you site and its full of really useful stuff :-) thanks for your support.
