National Flood School Launches Thermography Training Course

The National Flood School has launched a pioneering new course, investigating how innovative thermographic technology can transform restoration projects in flood damaged properties.

The Thermography Introduction Day is a thermography training course, which takes place at the National Flood School’s (NFS) training headquarters, based in Farnham, Surrey.

This comprehensive course looks at how infrared thermography and thermal imaging technology can speed up restoration works and reduce their impact on a property - making repairs less intrusive and more accurately targeted.

For example, a camera can be used to identify the source of a leak beneath a ceramic tiled floor without having to dig it up, resulting in dramatic time and labour savings and less disruption.

The day also includes a hands-on demonstration in the National Flood School’s purpose-built Flood House, and an introduction to the software to analyse and interpret images.

After completing the training, delegates will also have the necessary skills to produce thermography reports.

Courses run throughout the year. More details can be found at or by calling the course information team on 01420 559955.

Chris Netherton, managing director of the National Flood School, said: "The use of thermographic cameras in restoration projects delivers higher levels of accuracy and control.

"Thermographic technology has been available for years, but it has traditionally been extremely expensive.

"As with most technology, the equipment has become much more cost-effective and will become increasingly important to flood restoration professionals.

"The equipment enables users to pinpoint problem areas. An example is a leaking pipe buried in concrete. Traditionally, much of the affected area would need to be dug out to identify the leak, but with a thermal imaging camera the problem can be quickly and accurately traced, with only the affected area requiring access.

"Another application in which they can be used is to trace complex electrical faults. Many hours of testing might need to be carried out to establish the problem, but a thermal imaging camera can quickly locate the defect."
