Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation
ACGIH®'s Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation is a 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 system design (including ACGIH® calculation methods)
  • Make-up and supply air ventilation systems
  • Dilution ventilation systems
  • Selection and design of exhaust hoods, ducts, and fittings
  • Fans and air cleaners (including Fan Laws)
  • Troubleshooting and testing of existing systems
  • Hands-on testing and measurements

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and select appropriate ventilation systems for process emission/exposure control
  • Measure and evaluate the performance of ventilation systems (flow, pressure, horsepower)
  • Design and evaluate dilution ventilation systems
  • Design/re-design local exhaust systems using state-of-the-art design procedures
  • Design, operate, and modify hoods appropriate to participants' needs
  • Critically review ventilation system plans, drawings, and specifications of engineers and architects

Practical Applications of Useful Equations
ACGIH®'s Practical Applications of Useful Equations serves as the perfect complement to Fundamentals in Industrial VentilationPractical Applications of Useful Equations closely follows ACGIH®'s Quantitative Industrial Hygiene: A Formula Workbook supplied to participants and includes:

  • Calculation and estimation approaches related to airborne contaminants
  • TLV® and TWA
  • OA for dilution, fans, system testing, sound and noise, heat stress, radiation, ventilation, statistics, chemistry, etc.
  • A calculations lab in which participants work in a team environment

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basic fundamentals, estimation techniques, and calculations related to occupational health and safety
  • Understand terms and units used in OH&S related estimations and formulas
  • Understand and apply formulas related to OH&S estimations and calculations
  • Use dimensional analysis to generate formulas and mathematical relationships
  • Prepare for certification exams
