Tactical Firefighting Thermal Imaging 1 Certification (Presented by Insight Fire Training)
Presented By Insight Fire Training
Infrared Training Course custom built for firefighters, company officers, and chief officers to understand, interpret, and incorporate thermal data into their fire ground decision making process. This four-day infrared training course discusses the importance of understanding thermal severity, the five key attributes of thermal imaging, contraindications,and specific fire ground applications. Participants will expand their thermal imaging, fire behavior, and building construction knowledge to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the fire ground from the infrared perspective. This course is based on empirical data, research, line of duty deaths, and an internationally recognized curriculum that is being implemented in departments across the globe. Participants are encouraged to bring their model/brand of Thermal Imaging Camera to the training.
