Hospital Ventilation

Ventilation Training

CP Training & Courses

We can make arrangements with expert training groups for full Competent Person Ventilation training and undertake a shorter ventilation maintenance course for maintenance staff.

CP Course - 3 days

This course is intended to help engineers gain the skills and knowledge required to become a Competent Person (Ventilation), CP(V). Although attendance on this course may be a factor, any appointment to CP(V) is based on individual skill levels and specific knowledge of the relevant ventilation systems.

Our training can be carried out at your location or hospital.

On successful completion of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • State the purpose of ventilation systems
  • State the meaning of ventilation terminology
  • State the function of system components
  • State the function of ventilation controls and the building management system (BMS)
  • Identify ventilation system components
  • Identify correctly/incorrectly installed or maintained components
  • Measure airflows and pressures
  • Carry out air handling unit (AHU) and theatre suite audits (depending on theatre availability)
  • Correctly carry out planned protective maintenance (PPM) including filter changes and checks on: AHU condition; belt tension; glass traps; battery condition and damper operation
  • Carry out critical system verifications (depending on system availability)
  • Locate information in HTM 03-01
  • Carry out basic psychrometric measurements and calculations

Ventilation Maintenance Course - 3 Days

This course is intended to give maintenance engineers the particular skills and knowledge required to maintain ventilation systems and to assist the CP(V) in fault finding or verification activities.

Our training can be caried out at your location or hospital.

On successful completion of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • State the purpose of ventilation systems
  • State the meaning of ventilation terminology
  • State the function of system components
  • Identify ventilation system components
  • Identify correctly/incorrectly installed or maintained components
  • Measure airflows and pressures
  • Correctly carry out PPM including filter changes and checks on: AHU condition; belt tension; glass traps; battery condition and damper operation

Assessment and Certification

Both courses are assessed and successful delegates will be issued with a certificate of attendance.
