Kentucky Thermal Institute

Kentucky Thermal was founded in 2008 to establish and develop a non-destructive thermography based service business. Over the years we realized that this technology would be embraced within every industry as a specialized trade, and we knew our work had only just begun. Our educational mission began by offering Building Science Thermology education and will now expand well beyond Medical Thermology.
To succeed in Thermology, you must understand the science behind this fantastic profession. Think about it: Thermology science begins when molecules begin to move; at that point, everything emits heat. Thermology not only helps us comprehend the temperatures in the universe, but also allows us to identify power quality issues; energy loss; tactical firefighting methods; medical and veterinary diagnosis; and even issues within the manufacturing of food or automotive products.
Thermology education has historically been based on a scientific theory with no real-world or practical application knowledge; this has impeded the opportunity for someone to learn the practical skills required to conduct a scan and interpret the images. Enrolling in our programs will provide the practical knowledge and support you need to become a well-informed Thermologist within your field.
Register for the WKU Introduction to the Science of Thermology course and begin the journey to understanding the vast opportunities of becoming a Thermologist.

All courses are available on demand in a convenient online format that allows you to set your own study schedule:

enroll any time, complete at your own pace!
