The Blueprint and Design Review Course provides CP-12 careerists with valuable skills that can be incorporated directly to their job responsibilities.
Engineers from the US Army Public Health Command’s Industrial Hygiene Field Services provide instruction on the basics of blueprint organization and structure, technical requirements for specific design criteria and evaluation procedures to performing a sound design review.
Hands-on exercises and class discussion are used by instructors to enhance student learning.
In addition to the technical information, the students are able to network with each other and the instructors.
Upon completion of this course students should be able to demonstrate the ability to recommend and apply ventilation engineering and life safety principles and related calculations to design a variety of workplaces, knowledge of design principals, and the regulations and standards pertinent to building design.
Because the instructors are Army Civilians, the students have reach back should they encounter questions or concerns when reviewing a design on their own.
Students are administered pre- and post-assessments as a course evaluation tool. Pre & Post Assessments will be administered through a web-based program. Students will have 3 working days after the course to complete the web-based final assessment. Certificates are issued to students who achieve at least a 70% on the final assessment.
