Announcing the IAQ Master Class Webinar Series
Building Capacity for IAQ Mastery:
Creating Green Clean and Healthy Schools requires mastering the indoor environment using a comprehensive approach. The School Health and Indoor Environments Leadership Development (SHIELD) Network is a group of diverse stakeholders who, in collaboration with the US EPA, are working toward the Bold Goal of ensuring that all schools have healthy indoor environments.

The SHIELD Network is launching the IAQ Master Class webinar series, which comprises ten 1-hour technical, core-competency Web-based trainings designed to build the capacity of school district staff across the country to start, improve or sustain an IAQ management program.
Learn from technical experts, industry leaders and model school districts during these live webinars, which will be followed by a 30-minute mentoring Q&A session.
Gain Recognition for your knowledge acquisition and commitment to action through certificates of completion for each training. Additionally, when you complete all 10 hours you will be acknowledged with a certificate that recognizes your efforts toward IAQ Mastery as a member of the 2015 SHIELD Network IAQ Master Class (CEUs pending).
