ACGIH® PRESENTS 2006 FUNDAMENTALS IN INDUSTRIAL VENTILATION AND PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF USEFUL EQUATIONS COURSES

Cincinnati, Ohio — February 15, 2006 — Ventilation expert D. Jeff Burton, MS, PE, CIH, has again joined with ACGIH® to offer two continuing education courses.

Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation will be held March 27-29, 2006 and Practical Applications of Useful Equations will be held March 30-31, 2006 at the ACGIH® Professional Learning Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Earlybirds who register for either course on or before February 27, 2006 will save $100.00; those who register for both courses save over $200.

Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation is a three-day course that covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation including:

  • The behavior of air and chemical contaminants in the air
  • Industrial process exhaust systems
  • Make-up and supply air ventilation systems
  • Dilution ventilation systems
  • Selection and design of exhaust hoods, ducts, fans, stacks, and air cleaners
  • Troubleshooting and testing of existing systems
Course participants will receive ACGIH®'s Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice, 25th Edition, Companion Study Guide to Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice, Jeff Burton's Industrial Ventilation Workbook, and a pre-programmed AutoCalc calculator.

Practical Applications of Useful Equations is a two-day course that serves as the perfect add-on to Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation. This course closely follows the workbook supplied, and includes:

  • Calculation and estimation approaches related to airborne contaminants
  • TLV® and TWA
  • OA for dilution, fans, system testing, sound and noise, ergonomics, radiation, ventilation, statistics, chemistry, etc.
  • A calculations lab in which participants work in a team environment
Course participants are required to complete Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation prior to taking this course. Materials received include Jeff Burton's Useful Equations book and Industrial Hygiene Workbook, a pre-programmed AutoCalc calculator, and course handouts.

The American Board of Industrial Hygiene has approved both courses for a total of 5 Certification Maintenance (CM) Points (3 for Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation; 2 for Practical Applications of Useful Equations). The Board of Certified Safety Professionals has approved both courses for a total of 2.5 Continuance of Certification (COC) Points (1.5 for Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation; 1 for Practical Applications of Useful Equations).

Those interested in attending one or both of these continuing education courses can register online at www.acgih.org/events/course/BurtMar06.htm.

Interested parties who can't make the March dates are encouraged to consider our September offering of Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation (September 11-13) and Practical Applications of Useful Equations (September 14-15). Registration for these courses can be completed online at www.acgih.org/events/course/BurtSept06.htm.
