HVAC Domestic and Industrial Ventilation Systems

COURSE NO: M05-018
HVAC Domestic and Industrial Ventilation Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces some practical design considerations for ventilation systems and their components. A dedicated section is included to cover industrial ventilation, which discusses the principle techniques and regulatory information for the prevention of hazards. The recommendations presented in this course are basic the guidelines and prudent practices at minimum.


Ventilation is the process by which clean air (normally outdoor air) is intentionally provided to a space where the stale, overheated or polluted air is removed. Ventilation includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building. It is one of the most important factors for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality and may be accomplished by either natural or mechanical means.


The design and selection of ventilation systems is a complex process which should involve professionals familiar with 'comfort' or 'hazard' control. In many cases improper design could result in the 'sick building' syndrome and, in many industrial applications, can be hazardous to the health of the worker.


This 5 PDH online course is intended for mechanical and HVAC engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, civil estimators, energy auditors, facility managers and general audience interested in gaining a better understanding of domestic and industrial ventilation systems.
