Register Today NFPA Documents Disclaimer- NFPA and other resource editions cited within the CFITrainer.Net site were current as of the release of the respective modules. The field of fire investigation and its guiding documents are constantly evolving and it is incumbent upon the fire investigator to remain up to date with the guidance in the current editions of the documents referenced in all modules on CFITrainer.Net, regardless of which edition was used in the writing of the module. Program Abstract NFPA 1033 section 1.3.7 requires that fire investigators obtain and maintain an "up-to-date basic knowledge…beyond the high school level" of thermometry, which is the measurement of temperature. This module addresses the foundations of thermometry, including the definition of temperature, the scales used to measure temperature, the devices used to measure temperature, how the fire investigator uses temperature and its measurement in the hypothesis testing process, and how knowledge of thermometry, temperature, heat, and heat transfer is applicable in a fire investigation.
