Viable and Non-Viable Particle Counting


+ Free Shipping

All our courses continue to evolve as standards and best practice change, and as we get feedback from previous delegates. A general outline of the curriculum for the day will include….

  • Cleanroom Introduction
  • Cleanroom Standards
  • Particle Basics
  • Viables and Non-Viables
  • Particle Counter Technology
  • Active Air Sampling
  • Classification vs Monitoring
  • Facility / Environmental Monitoring Systems
  • Liquid Particle Counters
  • Practical Exercise

This will be an in-depth training course with an “open book” style exam.  Greater than 90% must be achieved to be awarded a Pass Certificate.  Any delegate not sitting the exam or not meeting the required standard will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance.

For anyone owning, managing or working in a cleanroom, this course is designed to give an overview of both viable and non-viable particle counting. Useful for facility managers, production operatives, quality managers, engineers, validation staff and cleanroom certifiers, the course starts with a review of relevant standards and will highlight best practice and give some examples of what to do and what not to do. We will also look at viable and non-viable continuous monitoring systems and provide an overview of particle counting in liquids.
A practical session will cover “Cleanroom Classification” with the delegates getting hands-on with a particle counter – to classify a suitable part of their facility, or in a simulated training exercise.
