What you will learn
This 2-day course introduces participants to the basic concepts of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), reviewing contaminants/air pollutants in the built environment and the role of ventilation and filtration in addressing occupant health and comfort. Careful consideration of building materials/components and systems which may impact IAQ, prior to or during construction, offers the greatest opportunity to control the indoor environment.
Instructors will discuss the potential to minimize and or mitigate indoor contaminants through thoughtful design and operation of residential buildings and their mechanical systems. Attendees will receive an overview of instrument categories/test and sampling kits used to identify the types and extent of potential IAQ problems, and learn the systematic process of engaging in an indoor environmental quality survey.
THE BEST PART: The IAQ course is structured as an interactive format, where students participate in workshops and complete various assignments based on existing codes, standards, guidelines and established good practice. This course would be of benefit to builder representatives, particularly those involved in building design, sustainability and sales.
