Man inspecting Ventilation system

Ventilation Training

Required for all retrofit projects and by many local authorities as part of the signoff process

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) for retrofit projects and within new dwellings, to ensure that they meet the criteria for adequate ventilation as required by Part F of Building Regulations.

Course Content

  • Introduction to working principles of ventilation systems
  • Minimum legal requirements
  • Continuous Mechanical Extract Systems with Heat Recovery
  • Commissioning of a mechanical ventilation heat recovery unit
  • Installation techniques

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.

Crucial last piece of the jigsaw

Due to the associated health risks of a poorly ventilated property, several local authorities now require a ventilation inspection before sign off.

Offer multiple services

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.
