Infrared Inspection of Electro Mechanical Systems

Electro Mechanical Infrared training online is a 24 hour course on theory and application in the use of the infrared electromagnetic spectrum to locate and evaluate problems in electrical distribution and mechanical systems. This is a certificate course that focuses on these two specific electro-mechanical applications, but may be applied to the training requirements for thermographer certification.

This course covers infrared theory, heat transfer concepts, equipment operation and selection, standards compliance, infrared electromagnetic spectrum analysis and report generation. You are trained to identify and document thermal patterns caused by improper electrical, mechanical or electro-mechanical design, workmanship or material failure.

Self directed learning activities are provided to help student gain practical experience and do not require an infrared camera to successfully complete this course. This online infrared certificate course covers both infrared electrical inspection and mechanical testing applications. From infrared electrical testing like electrical distribution to mechanical infrared testing like that of gearboxes, to electromech technologies in between.

This online infrared course more thoroughly supports your NDT and PdM programs by covering both Infrared mechanical testing and electrical. This online infrared course prepares the electro mechanical technician and engineer for a broad range of equipment in your facility as electromechanics (electro mechanical systems) is any mechanical component controlled by an electrical device.

Just a few examples electro mechanical devices are motors, pumps, switches, solenoids, electric valve actuators, etc. Examples of electro mechanical systems are robots, automated machines, CNCs, boilers, air compressors, etc.

Testimonials:
"This course is going to completely change the way I do my job. Heavy industry predictive maintenance was a struggle. With the tools we picked up from this class, that struggle should diminish greatly. We will expect to greatly lower our unexpected failures. Thanks " Dennis Somerder - Kennecott Energy

"I feel like the instructors made the training so easy to understand. It was like carrying on a conversation." Barry Deaton - Nissan Motor Corp.

"A very useful course that gives real credibility to an infrared program and is the best of all other courses I have reviewed." Richard Saint Aubyn Johnson - Jamaica Public Service Company

"I have been through training courses for almost every area of NDT and this course was the best I ve ever taken. The staff is professional, well informed and well prepared. They ve done their homework and present information in a most practical manner. A must take course for anybody in the business." Carl Gustafson - Amoco Oil Company

"This course exceeded my expectations. Very detailed and thorough. Course was very helpful and gave me a better understanding of infrared. Great course " Jerry Zajac...
