Level II discusses advanced infrared theory, equipment calibration, error sources, advanced equipment operation, assigning temperature limits and repair priorities, and quantitative report generation.
Level III covers advanced topics including latest applications, hardware and software, current industry standards and specifications, OSHA and NFPA safety standards, and thermography as legal documentation.
