Why IACT? In a word - service!
Service to the public, governing agencies, and our members .....

Where can I find a well-trained and certified thermographer?
One of the important functions of our association is to provide a means of finding a qualified thermographer in your area. The IACT thoroughly reviews each pending member's credentials and verifies that they were properly trained by a recognized source and successfully passed their examinations for certification. We take this very seriously. Only those who can provide this level of proof are awarded membership by the board of the IACT. When you find a thermographer on our referral list you can trust that they have been well-trained and certified!

I've talked with many "experts" out there only to find that they were salesmen in disguise for equipment manufacturers. Where can I find trustworthy unbiased information on thermography?
The officers of the IACT are bound by the association's code of ethics. None of the officers may act as sales representatives, in-fact or in disguise, for thermographic equipment manufacturers. In order to provide the public, and our members, with objective and unbiased information we cannot be involved at this level. You can trust that the information your receive from the IACT is based on data gathered from research studies, expert opinion, and decades of field experience.

Where can I improve on my level of knowlege without having to wait for a conference or symposium?
The IACT offers its members exclusive access to a fully captioned image library. We are in the process of gathering the largest single database available in the world. Our members have the ability to access this database 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

The IACT is proud to provide the first and only interdisciplinary portal serving the public in their quest for finding certified thermographers and trustworthy information in the field of thermal imaging. We are equally proud of supporting our members as they provide this valuable service the world over.
