This qualification is based on, but exceeds, the requirements of EN ISO 6781 for Class 1 thermographers. While the ISO 6781 description of a Class 1 thermographer is quite restrictive, i.e. thermographers can use a camera and perform basic analysis, they should work under the guidance of someone certified at a higher level.
This qualification includes additional units that enable learners to act as independent thermographic surveyors. These units allow learners to demonstrate the professional knowledge, understanding and skills required to carry out independent thermographic surveys, analyse images and sign thermographic survey reports within the domestic built environment. Learners holding this qualification meet the competence requirements for thermographic surveys laid down in the BRE Home Quality Mark and BREEAM Domestic handbooks.
On successful completion of this qualification the British Institution of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT), has recognised that the Level 3 Thermography qualification may be used to gain membership to the organisation. The Level 3 qualification entitles the holder to Associate membership.
Learners holding this qualification also meet the competence requirements for thermographic surveys laid down in the BRE Home Quality Mark and BREEAM Domestic handbooks.
