EnviroVent, the ventilation manufacturer, has obtained approval from RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) for its CPD (Continuous Professional Development) course: Ventilation Strategies & Best Practice Compliance.
The CPD outlines the roadmap to ventilation compliance and considers the current environmental and political drivers in ensuring good indoor air quality through efficient ventilation. It is delivered by an EnviroVent ventilation specialist in the form of an hour-long seminar, which covers the key areas on the subject of ensuring adequate ventilation. This includes technical theory around the ventilation strategies of Approved Document F and the minimum requirements of Approved Document L.
The CPD covers the following topics:
- The health impacts of poor ventilation and indoor air quality
- Technical theory and specification – Approved Document Parts F and L and the ventilation strategies
- The levels of competency required for installation and key compliance documents
- Best Practice installation, commissioning and design of ventilation systems
- Long-term aftercare and maintenance of ventilation systems
The course will now be included in the RIBA CPD Providers Network, which is a valuable source of information for architects and other specifiers.
Rebecca McLean, marketing and product director at EnviroVent, explained: “We are delighted that our latest ventilation CPD course is now RIBA approved. This very easy-to-follow CPD is ideal for assisting architects and technicians in providing the most accurate specification of ventilation products and best practice installation.”
As EnviroVent’s CPD course material has been rigorously assessed by RIBA, this means it is now worth double CPD points to RIBA Chartered Architects and is indexed on ribacpd.com.
EnviroVent’s CPD courses deliver informative and highly relevant know-how on using the most effective and energy efficient ventilation solutions to ventilate homes. All attendees will receive a CPD certificate.
In addition to offering CPDs, EnviroVent has a dedicated ventilation showroom at its training centre in Harrogate. The showroom contains working installations of the various ventilation units, where the ducting and airflows can clearly be seen. Architects and other visitors are invited to make an appointment and receive a demonstration of the operation of ventilation products and how these help to reduce humidity levels and prevent condensation and mould from forming in a home.
EnviroVent’s training centre in Harrogate is also approved to deliver NICEIC ventilation courses.
EnviroVent offers a range of Positive Input Ventilation (PIV), Mechanical Extract Ventilation (MEV) and Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) solutions to the new build and refurbishment sectors.
