Indoor Air Quality and Role of HVAC System (0.7 CEU's)

INDOOR AIR QUALITY AND

ROLE OF HVAC SYSTEM

LEARN HOW TO CORRECTLY IDENTIFY IAQ PROBLEMS, MAINTAIN GOOD INDOOR AIR QUALITY AND UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF HVAC SYSTEMS RELATED TO IAQ

DESCRIPTION:

Everyone prefers staying well. Still building occupants are getting sick, and more of them are blaming their illness on the indoor air quality (IAQ) where they work, attend school, or receive medical or dental attention.

This seminar will enable the participant to gain knowledge of IAQ and develop skills in how to assess ventilation and HVAC systems, how to recognize IAQ problems and what type of corrective action can be taken quickly. The course will also provide participants with practical guidelines for the operation, maintenance and evaluation of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. A discussion of various HVAC components required to improve IAQ and enhance the performance of ventilation systems will be explored.

HOW YOU WILL BENEFIT:

You will learn:

¨ An assessment of ventilation and HVAC systems

¨ Recognize IAQ problems in the workplace and may rectify problems economically

¨ Will learn that corrective action can be taken easily and it is less time consuming

¨ Understand the importance of HVAC systems related to IAQ

¨ Specifics of design and the intended functioning of HVAC Systems

¨ Will learn the role and function of individual HVAC components

¨ Workshops

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Engineers, HVAC contractors, engineering consultants, industrial hygienists, health and safety personnel, facility operators, building managers/owners, maintenance personnel/ supervisors and those individuals that perform IAQ evaluations. This course will also be of interest to anyone seeking a better understanding of some of the most popular tools used in improving indoor air quality (IAQ).

CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS/PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT UNITS

Each participant will receive a certificate of course completion indicating 0.7 CEUs. CEUs are universally recognized nationally and internationally. One CEU is equivalent to ten (10) professional development hours (PDHs)/units (PDU).
