Thermal imaging inspection

(Seth Nickerson) #1

I’m looking to add thermal imaging to my hi business should I charge extra for this service ?

(Roy Lewis, CMI - North Florida Inspector) #2

Yes! However, do you know how to use it?

(Seth Nickerson) #3

Not yet but I will be taking a course to get certified. What’s a reasonable fee for this service ?

(Larry Kage, CMI) #4

It depends on what you are doing with you imager.

How much do you feel it will be worth after spending $2,000+ for a camera and training MINIMUM?

Flir has a bunch of great courses…And many are no cost.
However, do the NACHI courses first…

Roy Lewis, “However, do the NACHI courses first”, should be a large tatoo for every inspector that will be using an IR camera. I would compare it to first grade, fantastic first basic class. The NACHI course REALLY prepares a “I do not know how to turn an IR camera on inspector” to an inspector that can begin becoming a LEVEL ONE. Life will be easier if ya’ll follow Roy’s advice.
