Training Course Details

This course will educate participants in fundamental ventilation design and improvement strategies. Using Ventsim™, course participants will model and simulate a wide variety of ventilation systems and scenarios. Participants will also learn how to optimise existing ventilation systems, in order to achieve considerable mine cost savings. Finally, advanced tools for emergency and fire simulation will be demonstrated to ensure mines can plan for emergencies and hazardous conditions.

All participants will receive a 30 day licence of the latest version of Ventsim™ DESIGN and example files for course work and post course exercises.
