COURSE TITLE: HVAC Design for Healthcare Facilities
COURSE NO: M06-011
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC Design for Healthcare Facilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course briefly outlines the best practices for design, construction and maintenance of healthcare HVAC systems. This course contains some, but not all, of the criteria pertinent to the design of HVAC systems for hospitals and is not substitute for industry standards such as AIA, OSHA, ASHRAE, ARI, JCAHO etc.

 

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are complex environments that require special attention to HVAC design. Hospital air conditioning assumes a more important role than just the promotion of comfort. In many cases, proper air conditioning is a factor in patient therapy; in some instance, it is the major treatment. Studies show that patient in controlled environments generally has more rapid physical improvement than do those in uncontrolled environments.

 

Poor IAQ can adversely impact the patients' and staffs' health, comfort and productivity. To build an effective HVAC system, maintaining the quality of air as well as designing for the efficient removal of foreign particles is a challenge. The filtration and building pressure control is the most important component of HVAC design.

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of HVAC for healthcare facilities.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Infection control practices to minimize airborne contaminants
  • Air distribution effectiveness within spaces served by the ventilation/HVAC systems
  • Air quality requirements in the healthcare facilities
  • Room pressure relationships of isolation rooms
  • Temperature and humidity design criteria
  • Filtration practices
  • Selection of HVAC equipment including chillers, air-handling systems and distribution systems
  • System reliability and redundancy recommendations
  • Energy-conservative design practices for the healthcare environment

COURSE TITLE: HVAC Design for Pharmaceutical Facilities
COURSE NO: M05-006
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC Design for Pharmaceutical Facilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to "Good Manufacturing Practices" with focus on the HVAC system design.

 

Pharmaceutical manufacturing is generally conducted in environments that are cleaner and are carefully controlled at a required temperature, humidity and pressure. The HVAC system assumes a large part of the responsibility in maintaining these clean environments.

 

Design of pharmaceutical facilities is governed by Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's), which require companies to document how they intend to design and operate their facility. These are intended to set forth engineering requirements deemed necessary for safe design and operation of pharmaceutical facilities. Failure to comply puts the owner at both regulatory and business risk and therefore it is important that the pharmaceutical facilities are constructed under a rigorous and well-defined quality-control system.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of HVAC for pharmaceutical facilities.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Be aware of the critical design issues related to pharmaceutical facilities
  • Understand what GMP is and why it is important for safe guarding the end user
  • Learn the current codes, standards and regulations that govern the GMP's
  • State the requirements for proper pharmaceutical facility design including area classification, air change requirements and pressurization gradient
  • Explain the importance of product, equipment, material and people flow in the facility
  • Describe the cleanliness requirements for sterile and non-sterile operations
  • Learn the cleanroom air classifications as defined by US FDA and European Economic Community (EEC)
  • Describe HEPA filter theory, application, monitoring, testing, and repair
  • Learn the importance of pressurization and air flow pattern
  • Understand the basic air-conditioning schemes including types of air-handling systems (constant volume v/s variable volume)
  • Learn about the air distribution ductwork materials, and location requirements
  • Understand the commissioning, testing, validation and documentation requirements
