Why is this HVAC training course important?
A significant part of the work in the pharmaceutical industry, medical device industry and compounding pharmacies is carried out in cleanrooms. Management of cleanrooms (maintenance, (re)qualification) is often outsourced to specialized maintenance companies. Nevertheless, it is equally important that staff within the pharmaceutical companies themselves have sufficient knowledge of the operation of Heating, Ventilation and Airconditioning (HVAC) systems in cleanrooms, in order to be able to efficiently and correctly perform the following activities:
- facilitate maintenance and (re)qualification
- assess the qualification process and maintenance documentation
- gain more insight into working in the cleanrooms
- carry out audits
- assess deviations and changes
An important part of this course takes place in the practical areas of the Biotech Training Facility. The HVAC system is located in the technical area, is easily accessible and is frequently used during the course. The flow of air currents in the cleanrooms is made visible by using smoke tests. These tests clearly illustrate, among other things, the influence of movement on the air currents.
The latest version of the ISO standard NEN-ISO 14644 was published in January 2016. This ISO standard specifies the classification of air cleanliness in terms of concentration of airborne particles in cleanrooms and clear zones. We will amply discuss the consequences of this standard with regard to new and existing cleanrooms.
What can you expect from this HVAC system training course?

- the operation of HVAC systems in cleanrooms of the pharmaceutical industry
- the legal requirements and pharmaceutical guidelines for HVAC systems and cleanrooms
- the aspects that may influence the functioning of the cleanrooms and HVAC systems.
Technical, production and QA employees of pharmaceutical companies, compounding pharmacies and medical device manufacturers who need to understand the basic principles of HVAC systems.
