Noise Training Courses

Noise training - online workshops to full competency

The INVC is the major provider of noise competency training courses in the UK and Ireland and is the IOSH-approved organisation covering both noise and HAVS. We developed and run the public courses for IOSH and other organisations plus a wide range of customised in-house and online training versions for major companies worldwide.

We have also developed a range of specialised environmental noise training masterclass workshops at the request of Environment Agencies and Local Authorities (EHOs). We also develop and run joint noise control workshops in collaboration with the HSE.

Online noise training

global online noise training

Most of our noise training workshops are available as online versions, making best practices in noise knowledge available to anyone, anywhere.

All online noise training is provided by experienced engineers with a wealth of practical knowledge, not by academics. This ensures delegates gain as much useful expertise as possible to take away and put to use with our technical support provided as necessary.

Many thanks for your excellent, well grounded and humorous talk yesterday – much appreciated by everybody there… Some of your real world illustrations and solutions were certainly thought provoking… the best noise presentation I’ve ever been to…” BOHS – Andy Phillips: HSE

Most fan noise control projects rely on high-cost, inefficient, antediluvian techniques that haven't changed in a century. Conventional silencing usually reduces system efficiency. In contrast, this noise training course demonstrates how recent innovations can reduce capital costs by 50% - 80% and can increase efficiency to make projects self-financing through improved system performance.

EA and EHO Environmental Noise Workshops

This suite of effective, high-quality noise training workshops has been run regularly for Environment Agency staff and for EHOs. For the latter, it has been designed to be run in-house for a host authority at minimal cost. The popular option for Local Authorities is to invite paying delegates from other councils to the workshops to encourage communication and to offset training costs. This has even allowed some hosts to generate a profit from staff training...

The Delegate View: “one of the most relevant and informative courses in a long time..” .. “I’d hate to come up against you in court! .. the best value seminar we’ve ever been on” – “standard of presentation was excellent .. humorous and entertaining .. highly recommended”
