Delivered with a mixture of self-learning and face-to-face delivery, the courses provide attendees with an opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in the area of Air Quality. The courses will appeal primarily to local authorities, consultancies, government agencies and regulatory bodies and students, in the fields of air quality, planning, transport, architecture, environmental science and public health. These courses are IAQM-accredited.
Accreditations and partnerships:
On these courses, delegates cover the basics of air quality management, including what causes air pollution and its effects, before looking at monitoring and modelling techniques using ADMS-Roads. They also learn about the role of planning in air quality and explore how air pollution can be tackled through technical and non-technical measures.
The courses align with the University’s commitment to sustainability.
Course lead and Associate Professor for Clean Air, Dr Jo Barnes, commented on the success of the courses:
“Our IAQM-accredited Air Quality CPD short courses, underpinned by our research and teaching, aim to provide a comprehensive overview to enable those with little or no knowledge on the subject, to those with years of experience, the tools and ability to apply their learning in their workplaces. The combination of extensive access to online materials provided in advance, the live presentation and interactivity of the practical sessions, really bring this subject to life and gives delegates the chance to also learn from each other.”
Course attendee Amelia Rivers, Environmental Health Officer commented:
“The learning I will apply back at work will be the importance of monitoring air quality when looking at planning applications and really think about the potential effects on air quality the proposed application can have.”
