Frequently Asked Questions About the IR/INFO Conference 

What is the IR/INFO Conference?

IR/INFO is the world’s premier technical and advanced training conference for infrared thermographers.  Created in 1987 by Infraspection Institute, IR/INFO is a forum for information exchange in the thermographic, nondestructive testing (NDT), and condition based monitoring (CBM) realms. IR/INFO features advanced training, technical presentations by industry experts, and showcases the latest in infrared thermal imaging hardware and software.

How Does the IR/INFO Conference Differ from Infraspection’s Certification Courses?

The IR/INFO Conference is a unique gathering initially created by thermographers for thermographers. However, engineers, technicians, and managers involved in P/PM or NDT technology also benefit from the vast information exchange information at this valuable symposium.  IR/INFO provides a resource for thermographers to keep abreast of technological and regulatory changes in the constantly evolving realm of infrared thermography.
