Favorite REHVA online course on COVID-proof building operation

The Federation of European Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Associations (REHVA) is organizing an online course (~6 hours) covering key topics on how to resume activities, safely operate buildings and specifically use densely occupied indoor spaces during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The course is based on the REHVA COVID-19 guidance documents and its modules provide basic theoretical knowledge with hands-on information taught by REHVA experts. Participants get access also to the latest REHVA guidebooks on air filtration and the hygiene requirements of ventilation systems. After going through the training material, the trainees who also successfully complete the online exams obtain a certification.

Favorite Updated version of REHVA COVID-19 guidance

REHVA published its first COVID-19 guidance mid-March 2020, followed by two updates in April (2nd version) and August 2020 (3rd version). The third version of the guidance is focusing on how to reopen and safely use buildings after the lockdown, providing advice on specific components, buildings/space types, and suggesting mitigation measures. The third version of the guidance document overwrites all previous ones. Updates are expected in the upcoming months as more academic data becomes available.
