COURSE TITLE: Building Air Quality: Basics
COURSE NO: C02-036
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Building Air Quality: Basics
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the factors affecting Indoor Air Quality (IAQ): sources of indoor air contaminates, HVAC systems design and operation, pollutant pathways and driving forces, and building occupants. Moreover, this course illustrates how "effective communication" between building management and building occupants is very essential in preventing IAQ problems.

 

The indoor environment in any building is a result of the interaction between the site, climate, building system (original design and later modifications in the structure and mechanical systems), construction techniques, contaminant sources (building materials and furnishings, moisture, processes and activities within the building, and outdoor sources), and building occupants. Indoor air contaminants can originate within the building or be drawn in from outdoors. If contaminant sources are not controlled, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) problems can arise, even if the HVAC system is properly designed and well-maintained.

 

EPA recognizes that IAQ problems present serious hazards to building occupants. Therefore, EPA developed this guide to protect building owners and building occupants from poor indoor air quality and to promote a healthy indoor environment in which the surroundings contribute to productivity comfort and a sense of health and well being.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to civil, environmental and mechanical engineers, facility managers, building owners and all others who are interested in gaining an understanding of building air quality.

COURSE TITLE: Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
COURSE NO: C04-049
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents guidelines for the remediation/clean-up of mold and moisture problems in schools and commercial buildings. These guidelines include measures designed to protect the health of building occupants and remediators. Individuals with little or no experience with mold remediation should be able to use this course to help them make a reasonable judgement as to whether the situation can be handled in-house. It will also help those in charge of maintenance to evaluate an in-house remediation plan submitted by an outside contractor.

 

Molds can be found almost anywhere. They can grow on virtually any organic substance if moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors. 

 

When mold growth occurs in buildings, adverse health problems may be reported by some building occupants, particularly those with allergies or respiratory problems. Remediators should avoid exposing themselves and others to mold-laden dusts as they conduct their cleanup activities. Caution should be used to prevent mold and mold spores from being dispersed throughout the air where they can be inhaled by building occupants.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended to environmental and facility engineers, building managers, custodians, and others who are involved in the development and implementation of mold prevention and remediation plans.

Design and Construction of Radon-Resistant Schools and Other Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information and guidelines about radon prevention techniques so that they can be cost-effectively incorporated into schools and other large buildings during the design and construction stages.

 

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can accumulate in varying amounts in enclosed buildings.  Our increased understanding of the risks posed by radon indoors has underscored the need for construction techniques that prevent exposure to radon in buildings.  It is typically easier and much less expensive to design and construct a new building with radon-resistant and/or easy-to-mitigate features than to add these features after the building is completed and occupied.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for engineers and architects who are involved with the design or construction of schools and other large buildings.

Learning Objectives

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

  • General understanding of radon
  • Review of current construction methods for radon prevention
  • Guidelines for designing and installing active soil depressurization systems
  • Guidelines for designing and installing sub-membrane depressurization systems
  • Testing methods to determine effectiveness of depressurization systems
  • Design recommendations for HVAC systems
  • Sealing radon entry routes
