"I wish to thank you, again, for such a great class; it is clear that you have so very much knowledge to share and that you have been working on the Class for a long time. Five full-days would have been good for me...But, I guess I can't have everything..."

"I have just completed the building science course taught by Scott Wood at ITC. I was blown away by Scott's knowledge and application of thermography as it relates to Building Science. The excitement level was so intense and the material content so high that we almost did not complete the course. As a contractor for 35 years I am humbled by my lack of knowledge in regards to sustainable building practices. There is currently a paradigm shift in this country and a redefining of "green building". Experts like Scott are helping us to look at Buildings as a system and not just individual components. My complements to Flir systems for being on the "cutting edge" with this course. I sincerely hope that there will be an "advanced" building science course in the near future."
