YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Having your own drone is not essential to attend this course. However, to get the most from the course, it’s recommended that students have – or are working towards – achieving their A2 CofC or GVC.

Don’t worry – it happens! Our courses are packed full with lots of useful knowledge, and sometimes it can be hard to remember everything when it comes to your test or assessment. This is why our eLearning courses give you three attempts for your final examination. This also gives you a chance to go through your course materials again before retaking the test at a later date.

This online course is interactive and accessible from a tablet, phone or desktop. There is no limit to how long you have access to the eLearning platform so you can work through the course at your own pace and fit it in around your full-time work or other commitments.

Designed for those new to industry, this course provides students with the skills and knowledge to start using thermal imaging for commercial drone inspections. Ideal for those looking to expand their drone business, the iRed® Drone Thermal Imaging Category 1 course introduces the fundamentals of thermal imaging, along with industry insight into the multitude of commercial applications for thermal drone technology.

When you have signed up for the course you will be provided with a login for the eLearning platform.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a CPD Certified Certificate (28hrs) from iRed®, the UK’s leading experts in thermal imaging. This certificate also enables students to upgrade their qualification to an accreditation at a later date.

As a guideline, this course is designed to be completed over 4 days (28 hours).

Students attending the eLearning course will have access to all of the information needed to successfully complete the final examination. Those purchasing the accreditation upgrade will have access to a dedicated course trainer and unlimited learning support during the course.

This is the only drone-focused thermal imaging course that conforms to the ISO 18436 standard for infrared thermography. As such, students attending this course can opt-in for additional training to become eligible for full accreditation.

Whilst owning a drone/camera is not essential for attending this course, we would recommend that any student looking to purchase a thermal camera would aim for a minimum detector size of 320×240, ensuring that the camera is fully radiometric.
