Course highlights

  1. Infrared Inspection Theory: Participants will explore the history of infrared technology, its value, limitations, and its relevance to standards such as CSA Z462 and IEEE. This foundational knowledge sets the stage for understanding how IR inspections contribute to electrical system maintenance and safety.
  2. Safety: A critical component of the course, this section focuses on establishing an arc flash boundary, selecting appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and recognizing shock hazards. Safety training ensures that inspections are conducted without compromising the well-being of the inspector or the integrity of the electrical system.
  3. Inspection Techniques: This practical module covers the operation of thermal cameras, including selecting the right camera for specific applications, capturing meaningful pictures, and analyzing them to diagnose potential issues within electrical systems.
  4. Inspection Program Management: Participants will learn how to leverage software tools to create work orders, manage repairs, and conduct re-inspections. This segment emphasizes the importance of a systematic approach to infrared electrical inspection, ensuring issues are identified, addressed, and monitored over time.
