Our company makes thermography courses are certified according to UNI EN 473 and ISO 9712 in Italy, an examination by accredited Rina. The courses are taught by our Davide Lanzoni, engineer, Level 3 EN 473 – ISO 9712 and author of a book with two editions, a number of articles (see below). Of course locations Milan Polytechnic, the University of Cagliari (DICAT), the University of Naples Federico II (Department of Physics). The UNI EN 473 and ISO 9712 are the only standard to have legal validity within the CE, other certification procedures, although coincident in educational content, such as its American ASNT, are not recognized in Europe and in Italy. A fundamental difference between certification procedures UNI / EN / ISO and ASNT is the fact that for the first certification is issued and addressed to the person from a third part body, while in the ASNT is issued by the company (there is no third part), and therefore may be void if the person stops the relationship with the company.

Having regard to the impartiality that organism must ensure compliance with the candidate, the frequency of thermography courses and training can take place at a non-accredited or even at a single operator, provided that: • The program of the course is approved in advance by the notified organism • the teacher of the course is a level 3, as offered by SAIGE. At the end of the training course, the candidate will perform the exam, consisting of multiple choice questionnaires, and practical test (for level 2) the preparation of a task. Both the UNI EN 473 ISO 9712 provide that the three levels of qualification and certification of operators:

Level 1: the person has demonstrated competence to perform PND on the basis of written instructions (written by people qualified to level 2 or 3) or under the supervision of Level 2 or 3. Level 1 is the person authorized to: • set up the equipment to run the PND • perform the PND • record and categorize the results of tests on the basis of written • prepare a report of the results The person of level 1 can’t choose the method or technique of PND to be used, and can not assess or to interpret the test results.

Level 2: the person has demonstrated competence to perform PND in accordance with procedures established or recognized. In addition to the requirements for a person to level 1, level 2 the person is authorized to: • select the PND technique for the test method • define the limits of application of the test method • prepare written instructions for PND, based on standards and specifications • adjust and check the settings of the equipment • Perform and supervise the PND as well as all the tasks proper to a level 1 • interpret and evaluate the results of PND, based on standards, codes or specifications • assist staff level 2 or level 1 • organizing or preparing reports of PND.

Level 3: the person has demonstrated competence to perform and direct PND. In addition to the requirements for a person to level 2, level 3 the person may: • take responsibility for a laboratory test of the examination center and its staff • prepare and validate procedures and instructions for PND • interpret standards, codes, specifications and procedures • Establish test methods, procedures and PND to use • Perform and supervise all the tasks proper to a level 1 or level 2 • direct and supervise the qualifying examinations on behalf of an organization which has been authorized by the qualifying • to provide guidance to staff at all levels. As you can see the skills provided are based on the increasing levels, to “interpret and evaluate the results of PND, based on standards, codes or specifications” as required according to UNI EN 13187 for the building and for the legal validity any test, it is necessary for the technician is qualified to at least level 2.

– Salerno 6 to 10 May 2013, exam on May 13 – Genoa 3 to 7 June, and 10 June 2013 examination – Rome July 1 to 5, with exam July 8, 2013 – Bologna 22 to 26 July 2013, exam 29 July 2013 – Milan 26 to 30 August 2013, September 1, 2013 exam – Udine 23 to 27 September, September 30, 2013 exam – In Turin October 14 to 18, October 21, 2013 exam

These courses give access-examination level 2 in construction industry (energy loss, moisture from condensation and lifts, air infiltration and water, relief textures walls and windows, plumbing). Who is interested in courses for thermography in the electricity sector and the relevant certification level 2, you must also follow additional training module for 8 hours.

The next training modules for thermal imaging in the electricity sector, reserved for those who have attended the “baseline” module in courses for building thermography, are scheduled to – In Genoa on June 8 with test June 10, 2013 – In Rome from July 6 to July 8, 2013 examination – July 27, 2013 in Bologna with examination July 29, 2013 – August 31, 2013 in Milan by inspection September 1, 2013 – September 28, 2013 in Udine – Turin 19 October 2013

All classes are “full immersion” with hours from 9 to 18

Who does not have a camera they will be provided during the lessons. Basic courses: basic courses thermography last 16 hours and allow the student to understand the basics of thermography (Planck curves. Wien’s law, Kirchoff’s law, absorptivity, emissivity, rilfessività, transmissivity), to make a measurement of emissivity and to evaluate the reflected temperature. Include practical exercises with camera and use of the software, as well as an understanding of the most important technical parameters to evaluate the purchase of a thermal imaging camera (IFOV, NETD, FOV, spatial frequency, size of the image processing software). The frequency of courses based thermography captures credits serve to further then a course of thermography certificate level 2, and are therefore bound not only to those who want to start seriously studying the thermal imaging, but also to those who do not have time available to follow a course in whole succession certificate.

The next courses are scheduled according to – Salerno 6 to 7 May 2013 – Genoa 3 to 4 June – Rome July 1 to 2 – In Bologna from 22 to 23 July 2013 – Milan 26 to 27 August 2013 – Udine 23 to 24 September 2013 – To Torino from the 14th al October 15, 2013
