ACGIH® PRESENTS FUNDAMENTALS IN INDUSTRIAL VENTILATION AND PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF USEFUL EQUATIONS COURSES
June 21, 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 September 11-13, 2006, and Practical Applications of Useful Equations will be held September 14-15, 2006 at the ACGIH® Professional Learning Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Earlybirds who register for either course on or before August 14, 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).
