Infrared Training Limited would like to say a huge thank you to all of the guests who attended our Open Day on 21st January 2015 at our training centre in Liverpool. Despite the snowy weather, we were delighted with the turnout to our free networking event and also very pleased to get such positive feedback from those who attended.
We had guests speakers from industry delivering presentations relating to the importance of certification to raise standards within the industry; the routes to certification and the Reliability of Un-reliability in the Non- Destructive Testing industry.
Despite the numbers of competitors we had as exhibitors, there was a really great positive buzz about the networking opportunities available. We had camera manufacturers such as IRISS, Fluke, Testo, SATIR and Viewsafe; plus software developers Ti Thermal Imaging and The British Institute of Non Destructive Testing representing themselves and UK Thermography Association.
Guests on the day came from a variety of industries and backgrounds, this was particularly useful for our exhibitors who made new contacts and passed on extremely useful information from their product portfolios.
In addition to the state of the art equipment showcased by our exhibitors; we also had a wide range of older Thermal Imaging cameras presented in our training room, showing a brief history of the development of Infrared technology over recent years. We also had an Arc flash safety suit and a specially designed live electrical panel, which we use during training that is completely safe and identifies electrical faults within a circuit.
We were very fortunate to make lots of new contacts, including many local organisations that have an involvement with Thermography. We will definitely be delivering a similar event next year- bigger and better and we have already had plenty of interest from associate companies that would like to be involved.
As a result of feedback from attendees, we have decided that next years event will have a theme directed towards ‘For the technician; by the technician.’ Meaning that we aim to have more frequent presentations delivered in a shorter time frame, this enables us to offer a more diverse range of information and will have something useful and of interest to all of our attendees regardless of their job or industry. We are lucky to have great working relationships with our past and present students and have already identified some really interesting and specialised uses of Thermography to be presented at our next event.
