The eight day, 64 hour training course includes both theoretical and practical applications of thermographic inspection for a wide range of aircraft and aerospace components and structures with lectures on the latest industrial developments.
It is fully supported by 50 per cent practical sessions principally concentrating on the detection of water ingress within aerospace components.
