Building VentilationRegister


This one-day course has been aligned with the requirements of Australian Standards AS 1668.2 and AS 1668.4, with a particular focus on applications referenced in Volume 1 of the National Construction Code.

Participants receive a general knowledge on the background, history and objectives of the ventilation Standards. They will also examine the technical provisions of the Standards in detail and understand the rationale behind those provisions.

This course has been developed to place you in a good position to use and apply the Standards confidently and correctly. It is broken into specific areas (topics) to allow for a structured learning path. Each topic has a learning outcome participants should be able to demonstrate once completed.

Topic highlights

Review the provisions for mechanical and natural ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality as prescribed in AS 1668.2 and AS 1668.4

Recognise suitable natural ventilation principles for occupied spaces

Review the specific ventilation requirements for health care enclosures listed in AS 1668.2

Like all organisations across Australia, AIRAH is closely monitoring developments and advice regarding the coronavirus. This is changing rapidly. Gathering people together to share ideas and discuss the most important HVAC&R issues is a large part of what we do with our conference and events program. Unfortunately, as a result of COVID-19, AIRAH has had to make the decision to suspend all scheduled events up until May 31, 2020. This includes conferences, Industry Nights, seminars and face-to-face training dates.
In light of the suspension through to the end of May 2020, AIRAH is currently working on our entire program of events, training and professional development. We are, of course, cognisant of the quickly shifting landscape and will accommodate the state and federal governments’ requests in an effort to protect public health. We will let you know of our rescheduled dates/events as they become available. A full credit of any event/training registration, for use at future events/training, will be provided as necessary.
