The Introduction to Industrial Hygiene for Exposure Monitors & Industrial Hygiene Technicians Course is an introduction to the concepts, theory, and terminology associated with industrial hygiene. The course instruction provides students with a broad range of information including sampling methods, sampling equipment and media, and industrial hygiene calculations. In addition, Navy instructions, OSHA and ACGIH standards, and other agency regulations are discussed. The 5-day course is taught in a classroom setting by the NMCPHC Industrial Hygiene staff. Students must pass the final exam on the last day to receive a certificate of completion. The course is intended for exposure monitors, industrial hygiene technicians, and junior/inexperienced industrial hygienists/industrial hygiene officers (IHOs) . It is not designed for the experienced professional industrial hygienists/IHOs or those with advanced degrees in industrial hygiene. Quota priority for the course will be given to monitors, technicians, or inexperienced/junior personnel needing the course.

Scheduling Travel Plans for the Last Day of the Course:
The last day of the course begins at 0800 with a four-hour hands-on ventilation exercise. An hour review starts after lunch and is followed by the final exam that takes most students two hours to complete (ending at approximately 1600). We suggest you book any flights much later than this time since the airlines ask travelers to arrive 1 hour prior to flight times. Our location is a good distance from the airport and the tunnel traffic situation is ALWAYS unpredictable
