Certificate IV in Building Biology (22141VIC)
Building Biology is a rapidly expanding industry that investigates the health hazards that affect the built environment. A building biologist is trained to identify allergens and conduct mould, electromagnetic field, geomancy and indoor air quality audits. Furthermore, building material selection and design enables building biologists to work alongside builders and architects to construct dwellings that are not only energy efficient, but support the health and wellbeing of the occupants who live and work in them. Utilising occupational hygiene techniques, students will learn to conduct dust, mould and chemical sampling. The course focuses on ways to reduce and, where possible, mitigate the health hazards to provide clients with a cost effective way to reduce their exposure.
