HC Info’s new three-day training course, “Performing High Quality Legionella Assessments,” will be held May 19-21 at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort in Carlsbad, Calif. The course is designed for engineers, contractors, water treatment specialists, and industrial hygienists who want to provide Legionella assessment services for hospitals, hotels, or industrial facilities. It is also for public environmental health officials that investigate Legionnaires’ disease.

The three-day class will cover background facts, government and industry guidelines, risk reduction strategies, preventive measures for common sources of Legionella contamination, disinfection of plumbing systems, and water sampling. Steps in conducting Legionella assessments will be given in detail, including optimum scope of work, information to gather from the building operator, systems and devices to inspect, what to look for in each system, documentation, equipment needed, estimating the time required to conduct assessments, and pricing.

Matt Freije, author of Legionellae Control in Health Care Facilities: A Guide for Minimizing Risk, will be the primary instructor. The tuition of $1,195 includes a course manual, copy of Freije’s book, certificate, breakfast and lunch on the first two days, and transportation for the hospital site visit.
