Mold/Moisture/ASHRAE Training

Date & Time: 
08/23/2016 - 1:00pm to 08/25/2016 - 4:00pm

Because of the class size, this 3-day course is a classroom-only training. (Note: Participants must have a working knowledge of the blower door.) Participants will learn what causes moisture and mold problems, how to conduct a mold/moisture assessment, including recognizing “red flags”, and how to determine the various building tightness limits (MVL, ASHRAE, and DTL). Training will also cover moisture control strategies, including ventilation issues. Participants will use a digital monometer and TI-89 calculator to test pressure differential caused by mechanical ventilation and use the REDCalc calculations to determine ventilation needs.  Participants need to bring a TI-89 calculator to the training.

When:  August 23 – 25, 2016. Classes will begin at 1:00 pm on the 23rd.

Where:  Mid-Iowa Community Action (MICA) offices, 1001 S 18th Ave., Marshalltown. Agencies are responsible for making their own travel arrangements and room reservations.

Reimbursement:  Agencies may use HEAP Training/Equipment funds to pay for staff training.
