This intermediate self-study workbook course is intended as a follow-up to AIHA University’s introductory course, Introduction to IH Analytical Chemistry. It is intended for laboratory chemists and technicians who analyze routine IH air samples in accredited laboratories, but who may have little or no formal training in industrial hygiene.

Both of the "IH Analytical Chemistry" courses are designed to support the Body of Knowledge used to develop the IH Chemist Certification. This new credential is being offered to laboratory IH chemists by the National Registry of Certified Chemists (NRCC) and was developed under an MOU with AIHA and AIHA Registry Programs. Save $125 when you bundle both courses together!

Go beyond the basics outlined in the introductory course with an in-depth review of concepts that underlie IH sampling and analysis as well as a detailed exposition of specific techniques such as aerosol sampling and indoor air quality.

Topics include:

  • Validation of Sampling Methods
  • Selection of Sampling Methods
  • Indoor Air Quality
  • Use of Standard Methods
  • Advanced Sampling and Analysis of Aerosols

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Interpret a method evaluation report issued by OSHA or any other source of air sampling methods.
  • Classify sampling methods according to type and select an appropriate sampling method for an IH task.
  • Gain an effective understanding of how to approach sampling in Indoor Air Quality.
  • Explain the role of consensus standards, and how consensus standards and methods outlined in these standards relate to sampling and testing performed in the field.
  • Describe the methods used for sampling and analysis of organic and inorganic aerosols.
  • Describe the methods used for sampling and analysis of pharmaceuticals.

Course Outline

  • Validation of Air Sampling/Analysis Methods
  • Selection of Air Sampling/Analysis Methods
