Air monitoring applications! We cover the tactical aspects of air monitoring and atmospheric hazard assessment at hazardous materials incidents.  Live demonstrations, hands-on activities, and exercises using a variety of air monitoring equipment including pH paper, oxidizer paper, halogen detectors, multi-gas instruments, PIDs,  and FTIR gas/vapor spectrometers drive this class. Students will get hands-on experience measuring  over three dozen different gas and vapor samples during the week.

The class covers:

Order of Air Monitoring

Radiation Detection

Corrosive Atmosphere Detection

Air Monitoring Using Papers

Electrochemical Sensors

Photoionization Detectors (PID)

Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS)

WMD Detection
