ElectroMagnetic Radiation: IBE 212
This 5-day seminar is comprised of lectures, instructor- led discussions, instrumentation familiarization labs, measurement labs followed by application in a building evaluation using these instruments. You will learn about the physical nature of these radiations and the reported health effects from these radiations.

They include power system ELF magnetic and electric fields, power system VLF Fields and wireless radio frequency radiations emitted by cell phones, cordless phones, WiFi and other wireless devices. You will learn the testing protocols and the IBE Sleeping Room Standards used to investigate and rate the electro-climate in homes and other buildings. You will learn about practical remediation methods to address these emissions.
