Course Description

This course will provide practicing industrial hygienists with a fundamental training in assessing workplace ventilation design and function. Through didactic sessions and hands on activities in this day and a half long course, the participants will learn how to evaluate the effectiveness of ventilation systems, diagnose problems, and apply the equations on the CIH exam equation sheet to everyday ventilation problems. Both general dilution ventilation and local exhaust ventilation systems will be examined.

This training is intended for all practicing industrial hygienists who are tasked with evaluating ventilation systems, or who are studying for the CIH exam and would like a review of the fundamentals of ventilation.
