ACGIH® Presents Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation and Practical Applications of Useful Equations



Cincinnati, Ohio — June 25, 2002 — Ventilation expert D. Jeff Burton, MS, PE, CIH, CSP, has again joined with ACGIH® to offer two continuing education courses.

Fundamentals in Industrial Ventilation will be held October 7-9, and Practical Applications of Useful Equations will be held October 10-11 at the ACGIH® Professional Learning Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Earlybirds who register on or before September 9 will save $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, 24th Edition, Companion Study Guide to Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice, Jeff Burton's Industrial Ventilation Workbook, and a pre-programmed VentCalc 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, and chemistry
  • A calculation 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 course handouts.

The American Board of Industrial Hygiene has approved both courses for a total of 5 Certification Maintenance Points (3 for Fundamentals in Industrial Hygiene; 2 for Practical Applications of Useful Equations).
