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 30-minute mentoring Q&A.
