• CITA Certified Infrared Thermographer Registrar

    What is the CITA Registrar?

    The Registrar of CITA Certified Infrared Thermographers (CIT) allows you to verify the credentials of any participating CITA or affiliate member. Simply enter the name or certification number into the search fields to verify that your service provider is certified and meets the requirements for the job.

    Why Perform a Credential Check?

    Due to the rising number of unscrupulous operators making false or misleading claims about their qualifications or credentials we have established the CITA Registrar for Certified Infrared Thermographers. Frequently, infrared thermographers misquote there credentials or borrow those of another member in their organisation. Only individuals can be certified, not the company, so it's important that the infrared technician performing the work has the appropriate qualifications.

    Additionally, many infrared technicians do not possess the requisite qualifications for the work they are performing. See our table below to identify what each certification level qualifies a thermographer to do.
