CPD Training

CIBSE Approved Continuing Professional Development

Barkell offer CIBSE Approved CPD training sessions, using our expertise to assist you on your professional journey.

Whilst some sessions covered pre-determined topics, we are able, subject to demand, to tailor courses to your organisation’s specific requests. Our CPD training sessions are currently being delivered via an online platform, for covid safety, and we hope to soon be able to resume on-site training.


Our areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Ventilation – fresh air for occupants and dilution of pollutants (bio-effluents (CO2, water vapours), building and system emissions
• Fine filtration – purifying air in order to achieve acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ) in the ventilated spaces
• Heat recovery – recover waste heat from the building while exhausting contaminated air
• Heating and/or cooling (optional) – provide tempered air for space heating/cooling devices (fan coils, VAV boxes, chilled beams, etc)


Following the recent release of the revised Health Technical Memorandum 03-01 Part A and B guidelines (HTM 03-01 (2021)), which offer guidance on the design, installation and operation of ventilation systems in healthcare facilities, we are offering a one hour CPD summarising the revisions and offering information for mechanical AHU design, whilst considering the implications, shortcomings and potential value engineering solutions.

This course is aimed at consultants and facility management teams, involved the HVAC supply chain.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to HTM’s and the tenets of healthcare ventilation
  • Analysis of the HTM 03-01 requirements for AHU’s
  • Review of the revisions from the previous standards
  • Consideration of value engineering options

Course Objectives:

  • To understand the tenets of healthcare ventilation system design
  • To understand the HTM 03-01 requirements for the design of air handling units
