It is not merely enough to understand the world, we should change it for the better

IAQUK offer comprehensive training aimed at practitioners to assist with a dynamic understanding of indoor air quality and the effects of health, comfort and productivity.

Managing indoor air quality is challenging because it crosses many disciplinary boundaries, including architecture, building science, occupational health and human behaviour; and covers many types of variables relating to buildings, including their layout and technology, the organisations which occupy them, the management styles and the people themselves. Due to the importance of energy conservation, buildings are using air more efficiently within sealed buildings. As we commonly spend more than 90% of our time indoors, the air we breathe is critical to our health, comfort and productivity.

Our courses will provide the participant with practical guidance on how to achieve effective air quality in the workplace for optimum working conditions. It will explore the methods used to identify, assess and monitor the effectiveness of their ventilation system and will outline legislation and best practice for effective ventilation. The course will incorporate a comprehensive melange of technical disciplines which will assist the attendee to transfer technical knowledge to practical application.
