Ventilation Training provides individuals and companies with the relevant skills and knowledge to undertake Ventilation Testing for mechanical ventilation systems.
As an expert in this area, you can commission and test fixed ventilation systems (including their associated controls) within new dwellings, to ensure that they meet the criteria for adequate ventilation as required by Part F of Building Regulations.
About Ventilation Testing
Ventilation Inspectors can assess and verify the supply and extract rates of ventilation systems within new dwellings. Part F of UK Building Regulations requires that all 'purpose-provided' ventilation which includes MHVR Systems (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery Systems), as well as intermittent extractor fans, are tested to ensure they are operating efficiently and are fit for purpose. Air Flow Rate Testing results can then be submitted to building control which contributes to the the overall building compliance process.
Why become a Ventilation Inspector
With developers constructing properties which are more air tight, dwellings will need quality ventilation systems in order to reduce the risk of damp and mould build up. This trend will result in greater demand for ventilation inspectors, to provide a route to Part F compliance.
Moreover, those already offering on-site testing (such as air tightness testing) as well as SAP calculations/assessments will find that ventilation testing can complement these areas well, with a significant number of providers offering these services as a package.
Domestic Ventilation Training- Delivered by NICEIC
This two day course is provided in conjunction with NICEIC, the leading organisation for the assessment and certification scheme of electricians, and is suitable for all energy assessors, site-testers and other professionals working within the Built Environment. A breakdown of each day can be found below:
Upon completion of this course you will have all the technical skills and knowledge to join Elmhurst's competency scheme for Ventilation Inspectors.
