EMF Refresher Course



Prerequisite: successfully completed the Electrobiology subject

CPD Points: 20 (ASBB)

Duration: 20 hours

EMF testing is one of the most challenging skills we undertake as Building Biologists/EMF testing technicians, and the past five years has seen an explosion of Wi-Fi-enabled digital devices flooding the market. It can be overwhelming keeping up to date with the latest research, let alone identifying and testing the latest adapters and shielding materials to mitigate exposure whilst enabling your client to safely live in a technological world. The course has been designed to set benchmark standards in the industry and ensure consistency of testing amongst our members (an ongoing issue within our profession). The course will only be held once yearly and consists of five online zoom sessions on Tuesday evenings in March/April plus one day field training (see dates below).
