I don't want to seem self-serving AND I do want folks to know about the blog that Fluke sponsors. I'm one of the prime authors (yes, The Snell Group is still 100% independent of sales!) and spend a good deal of time crafting what I think is a pretty good blog, all related to thermography and much of it related to building thermography. Michael Stuart, who created the Home Energy Pros Infrared Thermography Users group, also chimes in weekly with his "what is it?" images, all good fun and a great way to test your analysis skills!

I feel very cynical about this “new” RESNET certification. I have been using a thermal imaging camera IRISYS4010 for over 3 years for building and roof inspections. In fact, it was the first piece of equipment I purchased. I took your Level I course with Matt and passed easily.
Now some of you guys along with RESNET seem to think a further hurdle is necessary. Frankly, this one seems more about extracting more money. Which to be sure I would happily pay if this profession I was in was covering the costs of such – and it is not. Your course was very thorough and included 3 exams. Now for 3 reports, and a 50 question test, and $600 RESNET wants to provide certification as well? Something is seriously out of wack here. Lastly, just how many continuing ed credits did RESNET allow for taking your course?
