DECEMBER 15, 2008 – CYNTHIANA, KY – Bullard, the leading manufacturer of thermal imagers, is introducing a state-of-the-art online training program for fire service and law enforcement professionals.

Bullard Smartline, the Bullard online training tool takes users through six easy-to-manage lessons that explain thermal imaging technology and how to interpret images using a thermal imager. This in-depth online training is the first offered by a thermal imaging manufacturer and is free to all Bullard customers. “Our online training is an extension of the value-added services our customers have come to expect from Bullard,” said Brad Harvey, Bullard Thermal Imaging Product Manager.

The training is user-friendly and comprehensive. It covers the complete line of Bullard Thermal Imagers for fire service and law enforcement including the T4, T3Max, T320, T3XT and the TacSight® SE35. The six lessons take participants step-by-step through:

  • Thermal imaging technology
  • Operating a thermal imager
  • Applications of a thermal imager
  • Optional accessories for your thermal imager
  • Care and maintenance of your thermal imager
  • Self-assessment test

After successfully passing the final assessment, a certificate of completion is awarded to the user. This training will be provided on CD with every Bullard Thermal Imager sold beginning in January 2009. This allows customers the option of accessing the training online or through CD.
