INSTRUCTORS

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
