This course is NOT centrally funded. Do not apply if you have not obtained permission from your supervisor or cannot qualify for funding TDY expenses either locally or through your career program. CP12 Candidates that have completed mandatory training will receive priority seating.   

The 40hr Healthcare and Laboratory Ventilation Course provides CP-12 careerists with valuable skills that can be incorporated directly to their job responsibilities.  

Engineers from the US Army Public Health Command’s Industrial Hygiene Field Services provide instruction on the basics of Healthcare and Laboratory ventilation, technical requirements for specific design criteria, and evaluation procedures to performing a sound ventilation evaluation. Hands-on exercises and class discussion are used by instructors to enhance student learning. 

In addition to the technical information, the students are able to network with each other and the instructors.  

Upon completion of this course students should be able to demonstrate the ability to recommend and apply ventilation engineering, explain ventilation principles, and related calculations associated with Healthcare and Laboratory workplaces, knowledge of design principals, and the regulations and standards pertinent to system design criteria.  

Because the instructors are Army Civilians, the students have reach back should they encounter questions or concerns when evaluating ventilation systems. Students are administered pre- and post-assessments as a course evaluation tool. Pre & Post Assessments will be administered through a web-based program. Students will have 5 working days after the course to complete the web-based final assessment. Certificates are issued to students who achieve at least a 70% on the final assessment. 

Please make note that the face to face portion of this course is Monday through Thursday (full class days),and Friday (1/2 day). Travel days are Sunday and Friday. Please do not book departure flights on Friday before 3pm. You will take a mandatory web-based pre-course quiz prior to the arriving at the course. This online course quiz will be due one week prior to your travel to the face to face portion. Those that do not complete the online portion one week before the course date will be removed from the course roster. 

Because this course involves field trips to actual workplaces and shops, students are required to have appropriate personal protective equipment, transportation, and wardrobe to accommodate offsite visits available.  

Certificates are issued to students who achieve at least a 70% on the final assessment. Attendance of all online and face to face course sections is required in order to receive a certificate for the course. 

CLASS MATERIALS: Slide Deck notes pages will be availableon Blackboard prior to the start of the course. You may wish to print these andhave them available during class. Bring materials to take notes (pens, pencils,highlighter, self-stick tabs, etc.) A scientific calculator is required.
