Starting with a headline and tag lines that say:
Become A Certified Thermographer
“Teleconference In Your Home (New Course Every Month)
“All By Phone – No Internet Connection Required
Or… On-Site Training Anywhere In The USA And Canada“
The web site Infrared-Certified.com can’t help but grab your attention.
It certainly got mine!
Then there’s their cool logo of the letter C in color palette graphics.
What the heck is this about?
That was my first reaction, but it didn’t take long and only one telephone call to John McKenna in Texas to figure it out.
The site, the training and the program serves the purpose of helping Home Inspectors learn the basics of Thermal Imaging and how to use it as part of their offerings for customers to catch things they could and can easily miss without infrared.
The outline of their training course is downloadable from their website and open for everyone to see and listed on the second page of this article.
They have been certified as a training organization for Home Inspectors by InterNACHI, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (They train and certify Home Inspectors in the larger area of overall home inspections.)
In addition to teleconference courses, the training programs for Infrared are offered at other locations as the training schedule for SPRING 2008 below shows.
