One of our students took our class by podcast and also by live webinar.  This is their review...  The class was no different for me than if I would have been present in a training class. With the advantage of going back or pausing. The good thing is that if you have any question, you are available by email and respond in a timely  manner. Lots of pictures which is good but I appreciate more your experience and scenarios presented of past inspections. Like the class. During the live webinar I liked the fact that you answered questions as they came up. (Justin)

What Are The Training Courses Called Level I, II, III

And How Does Our INFRARED CERTIFIED Training Compare?

Over 25 years ago several levels of infrared courses were set up for training individuals in various fields of thermography. None of those were developed expressly for the building inspector and contractor. InterNACHI has now filled that gap with this very intense two day thermal imaging training course, that concentrates totally on the needs of the inspection industry and methods necessary to utilize an infrared camera, with knowledge and confidence. Our certification trademark is federally registered and issued by the largest home inspection association in North America.

The word CERTIFICATION simply means a school certifies that you have attained a certain level of education or training. It does not give you legal status or make you an expert. It is legal to use an infrared camera without any certification. We do not recommend this, but it happens all the time.

Level one is the title of a class created over 25 years ago and use to be the only entry level class to learn about thermography. Now there are many entry level infrared classes. Our class, unlike Level one, deals with home inspections and buildings only. Level one does not deal much with home inspector applications. Back then they did not use the IR camera like we do now.

The reason our training cost less is because that is what we do best at InterNACHI. Our vast array of high quality education courses have been accepted by various government licensing agencies for many years and we produce more education and training than the rest. That is why we are the number one provider in the home inspector industry. Our infrared certified training webinar is a LIVE course with an experienced  instructor, John McKenna.  He also sits as an advisory member of Master Inspector Certification Board.   There are two test and a field assignment with this course. Many have said it is the best IR class they have ever seen.
