VIII. Writing Assessment Reports
IX. Detecting Moisture w/IR Tools
A WORD about Thermal Imaging Technology-"The reason we wanted to add this module is to better educate the student on how to utilize IR imaging technology to discern between insulation and
moisture, find suspect moisture and trace moisture intrusion for the purpose of writing or accomplishing a more successful regulated mold related services remediation project. This class has been
specifically designed for the MRSA or MRSR who desires to utilize the most advanced non-invasive diagnostic technology to make his/her job more effective and time efficient. We caution that all
IR technology be utilized in conjunction with standard moisture meter and moisture mapping to verify temperature anomalies," explains Doug Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI (MRSA/MRSR)
