Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning (HVAC) in a Regulated Environment
This is a three-day course designed to provide individuals with an in depth understanding of the design, balancing, commissioning, operation and maintenance of HVAC systems in a regulated environment. The course consists of lectures and imbedded exercises. Participants will also be placed in several real life situations such as completing a compliance review of floor plans and air flow diagrams, room pressurization schemes, ductwork design, and air balance reports; conducting emergency egress analysis during a system failure; HVAC risk assessment; and change control analysis including the impact of modifications requested by the end user.
The course is designed to provide the attendee with thorough knowledge of the following topics:
This course is specifically designed for non-engineers such as Regulatory, Quality, Validation, R&D, Clinical, Manufacturing, Maintenance and Management personnel who are functioning as inspectors, auditors, investigators, operators, and end-users as well as those in project team or project management roles.
This three-day program will provide you with the training needed to enhance your understanding of HVAC systems in terms of design, construction, commissioning and maintenance to ensure compliance with Good Engineering Practice, International Standards Organization (ISO) criteria, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulations and Guidance, European Union (EU) Directives, European Drug Regulating Authorities Lexicon (EudraLex) Guides, and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) Guidelines.

Upon completion of this course, each participant will have a comprehensive overview and understanding of HVAC systems and how they are designed, installed, commissioned, and maintained in a regulated environment. The course content will enable the participant to understand the system design, ask more informed questions, and challenge the findings when communicating in a group setting on a broad variety of HVAC issues. In addition, the regulatory agencies with a direct impact on the design and operation of classified and non-classified environments will be presented.
