Paul Ogletree

Paul Ogletree was first introduced to infrared testing over 20 years ago, and his passion is showing others this great technology. His qualifications include American Society of Non-Destructive Testing (ASNT) Level III in Infrared Testing, Building Science/Predictive Maintenance certification, and NACHI certified Home Inspector. Paul was privileged enough to work on the Space Shuttle with NASA for over 7 years, and helped develop the Flash Thermography Infrared System that enabled astronauts to continue missions after the Columbia accident.

Infrared testing is widely becoming a highly utilized method through many different industries. This class is a highly interactive training to enable the student to properly conduct inspections and understand some of the various conditions you may encounter. We will have numerous “hands-on” activities throughout the training session.

Some of the main highlights that will be included in this training include:

  • History of Infrared
  • Principles/Theory
  • Conduction
  • Convection
  • Radiation
  • The Nature of Heat and Flow
  • Basic Camera Operation (focus, level, and span)
  • Electrical Inspections
  • Building Science Inspections
  • Mechanical Inspections
  • Roof Inspections
  • Other Various Applications of Thermal Equipment
