See what our students say about our courses



“You did a great job keeping everyone engaged in the subjects and made it so it was really interesting and in a sense fascinating to learn about. I am a journeyman electrician... and we are used to dozing off or daydreaming in our required continuing education classes required by the state every 3 years, but this class I never did that!”



“Thank you for the great training. I found it very informative. After performing thermal imaging for a year and a half, it was nice to understand the "whys" of IR and not just do it like this because that's how I was trained.”



“Again, thank you for making the course interesting and entertaining. I will definitely recommend your course to anyone interested in Thermography.”



“Matt, thank you again for an excellent class. This round really reinforced my thermography education and practice techniques.”



“I’ve taken several training courses through the years and [these instructors] are at top of the list in relation to quality of instructor, knowledge and presentation. Simply put... Great class, great instructors, keep it up!”



“Thank you for doing such a great job with the OGI 1 Training course. This is one of the most interesting courses I have attended with both content and the great job you did with instruction!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an IR camera?

More More
We strongly recommend having thermal imaging (infrared) camera for training. Throughout the course, you will be asked to participate in camera operation labs designed to complement course lectures. Requirements for certification can be completed without a thermal imaging camera, however, it will improve your learning experience if you can follow along and participate. If attending with a colleague or friend, you may share a thermal imaging camera, but we suggest no more than three students to one camera to ensure all participants have equal opportunity to participate.

What materials are required?

More More
Students are encouraged to bring a thermal imaging camera, a tablet or laptop with Wi-Fi capability, and any supporting accessories (optics, charger cables, batteries, etc.). Final certification exams are administered electronically and will require a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to complete. Training will also address analysis/reporting software which we recommend having installed prior to training. Please note company devices may require administrative approval to install third party software.

What software do I need to download?

More More
Software will vary based on camera manufacturer. For FLIR cameras, we recommend FLIR Thermal Studio Suite. We also encourage FLIR Tools users to upgrade to Thermal Studio Suite, as FLIR Tools has been discontinued. Please note these applications are only compatible with Windows. For troubleshooting and software support please contact the FLIR technical support team for assistance: 866-477-3687 ext. 3
