Ventilation training

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:

  • Understand the purpose of ventilation systems
  • Explain the meaning of ventilation terminology
  • State the function of system components
  • Identify ventilation system components
  • Recognise correctly/incorrectly installed or maintained components
  • Measure airflows and pressures
  • Conduct 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
  • Perform critical system verifications (depending on system availability)
  • Locate information in HTM 03-01

VENTILATION MAINTENANCE COURSE - 1 DAY

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 carried out at your location or hospital.

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

  • Understand the purpose of ventilation systems
  • Explain the meaning of ventilation terminology
  • State the function of system components
  • Identify ventilation system components
  • Recognise 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.

Particles and Health 2021

  • 20 October 2021
  • Running from the 20.10.21 to 21.10.21

IOM is proud to be sponsoring the Particles and Health conference, a two day event designed for regulators and researchers to:

  • Address scientific studies regarding human health effects of PSLTs. The value of human studies over animal studies-when human-exposed populations can be studied adequately- will be emphasized.
  • Review and discuss definition of PSLT’s proposed at Edinburgh workshop and published in 2020 in the Journal Inhalation Toxicology with attention to both similarities and differences among these substances.
  • Address translational toxicology challenges, including the appropriateness of rats as models for human lung pathogenesis (particularly lung cancer) in light of lung overload phenomena and species differences.
  • Serve as a platform to present current scientific information about PSLTs important for regulatory action.
  • Publication of pertinent conference presentations in the peer reviewed scientific literature will allow the presentations to live beyond the conference and subsequently be reviewed part of regulatory deliberations.
  • Establish an interdisciplinary setting for industry, academia and regulatory professionals to interact on an important topic. Such interaction can facilitate enhanced understanding of the science and appropriate classification, labelling and setting exposure limits, among others.
  • Recommend areas for further research regarding the significance of the rat as a model for translation toxicology. 
  • Review the biokinetics of inhaled nanoparticles and the potential for non-pulmonary effects.
