About the Course

This Course was established to promote good ventilation practices and design techniques throughout industry and will help you understand how to evaluate and/or design a ventilation system. Classroom problems are solved using the Velocity Pressure Method of calculation as outlined in the Industrial Ventilation Manual published by the ACGIH.
