New Online Course - Elevated Skin Temperature Screening

The Infrared Training Center is now offering an online Elevated Skin Temperature (EST) screening course for anyone using thermal imaging for this application.

EST screening utilizes thermal imaging to measure the surface temperature of a person’s inner eye corner to detect signs of a fever. While infrared cameras cannot confirm the presence of a fever or virus, they are utilized to help prevent the spread of communicable conditions by identifying individuals who may have a high skin temperature. These readings can then be used to initiate secondary screening, if needed, to verify whether the subject has a fever.

This 4-hour course will cover the setup and operation of several camera models, as well as explain how infrared science applies to EST, and best practices for obtaining optimal results when screening for Elevated Skin Temperature.  Students completing the course and passing the knowledge check will be issued an ITC Certificate of Completion.  Registration for the class is available here via ITC’s online training portal.
