Optical Gas Imaging I Certification

Skilled users of the FLIR GF-Series and legacy GasFindIR cameras can inspect more than 3,000 connections per day in many applications—six times more than inspectors using current sniffer technology. This provides organizations with the most efficient LDAR inspection technology so they can meet many required emission reduction actions, including regulatory oversight like the US EPA OOOOa for the Oil and Gas Industry. Students in the Optical Gas Imaging Certification course will learn how to set up and operate FLIR optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras to ensure maximum proficiency. They will learn how to optimally adjust their cameras for varying field conditions to find gas leaks and under what environmental parameters gas leaks are most easily found, somewhat easy to find, and difficult to find. With this, students are able to ensure their OGI camera and inspections meet a wide variety of operating envelope challenges, with the ultimate goal of meeting any required work practices or verification checks of the technology.

What you’ll learn?

All key fundamental concepts of the OGI technology;

The regulatory framework associated with optical gas imaging;

How to perform a technology verification check;

OGI certification and calibration process or requirements;

Proper operation of a FLIR GF-Series or GasFindIR OGI camera;

The basics tenets of thermal science;

What parameters can affect detection with an OGI camera;

Basic safety practices for performing an OGI inspection

Level I Electrical Certification Class

“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!”


Level I Electrical Certification Class

“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.”
