ACGIH® PRESENTS FUNDAMENTALS IN INDUSTRIAL VENTILATION AND PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF USEFUL EQUATIONS COURSES
Cincinnati, Ohio January 15, 2010 Ventilation expert D. Jeff Burton, MS, PE, CIH, has joined with ACGIH® to offer two continuing education courses in April.
Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation will be held April 19-21, 2010, and Practical Applications of Useful Equations will be held April 22-23, 2010 at the ACGIH® Professional Learning Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Earlybirds who register for either course on or before March 15, 2010 will save $100.00; those who register for both courses by the earlybird deadline will save over $200.
Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation is a three-day course that covers both basic and advanced topics related to industrial ventilation including:
Course participants will receive ACGIH®'s Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Design, 27th Edition, Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Operation and Maintenance and Companion Study Guide to Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Design, 27th Edition, the latest edition of Jeff Burton's Industrial Ventilation Workbook, AutoCalc Spreadsheet Programs that perform calculations and equations covered in the primary workbooks provided with the course, including ventilation system design, and a CD-ROM with AutoCalc Spreadsheet Programs, copies of classroom PowerPoint presentations, copies of labs and exercises along with supplementary course materials. It is recommended that attendees bring a laptop or a notebook to the course.
- 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
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:
Course participants are required to complete Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation prior to taking this course. Materials received include Jeff Burton's Useful Equations and Industrial Hygiene Workbook, course handouts, AutoCalc Spreadsheet Programs that perform calculations and equations covered in the primary workbooks provided with the course, including ventilation system design, and a CD-ROM with AutoCalc Spreadsheet Programs, copies of classroom PowerPoint presentations, copies of labs and exercises along with supplementary course materials. It is recommended that attendees bring a laptop or a notebook to the course.
- 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
The American Board of Industrial Hygiene has approved both courses for a total of 5.83 ABIH Certification Maintenance (CM) Points (3.50 for Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation; 2.33 for Practical Applications of Useful Equations). This course qualifies for 2.9 BCSP Continuance of Certification (COC) Points for Certified Safety Professionals (1.74 for Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation; 1.16 for Practical Applications of Useful Equations). Certificates of Completion will be presented at the conclusion of the course.
