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)
