In-Place Filter Testing Workshop
August 16–20, 2010 • Boston, MA

Hands-on, Practical Solutions to In-Place Filter Testing Technology: Taught by Leaders in the Field

Program overview
Learn the latest air-cleaning techniques and regulatory requirements for in-place filter testers. This practical course is an essential component of preparing individuals to test and certify systems containing HEPA filtration and gas adsorption systems.

No aspect of nuclear technology is independent of a need to maintain air purity. The technology crucial to nuclear air cleaning is rapidly changing and the regulatory requirements are complex. This program offers essential hands-on training as well as theory-based information that will provide you with the experience and knowledge you need to meet the daily challenges of working with nuclear technology.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Test and certify systems containing HEPA filtration and gas adsorption systems for nuclear and non-nuclear applications
- Verify airflow in ventilation and air-cleaning systems
- Demonstrate an understanding of regulations issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Department of Energy pertaining to air- and gas-cleaning activities
- Operate testing equipment unique to these particular activities

Special Features
- Apply theory through interactive laboratory exercises
- Discuss issues during laboratory breakout groups
- Operate a variety of testing equipment

Wide-ranging ventilation topics are covered, including nuclear and non-nuclear applications relevant to the following industries:

- Military
- Biotechnology
- Hospital and Clean Room
- Anti-terrorism
