Who Should Attend
If you are an environmental professional or have a responsibility for environmental issues with regard to the impact of noise, then this course is designed for you. This will apply equally if you work in industry, local authority, construction or consultancy.
Aims and Objectives
This course will give you a detailed insight into the current standards and legislation regarding environmental matters (e.g. National Planning Policy Framework [incorporating the Technical Guidance], Noise Policy Statement for England, British Standard BS 4142, BS 5228) as well as the Environmental Protection Act, and will equip you to prepare a detailed environmental noise survey report.
You will look in some detail at Local Authority implemented guidelines issued on subjects ranging from "Clubs & Pubs" noise to "Barking Dogs", and not forgetting "Noisy Neighbours." The course also covers Acoustic Theory; Noise Reduction Techniques; Instrumentation and Measurement.
- To ensure that you have an understanding of the principles of environmental noise, including the subjective effects on people
- To give an in depth view of the recently introduced National Planning Policy Framework, standards and legislation covering environmental noise
- To develop and understand the effects of factors that influence measurements
- To give an insight into instrumentation and practical noise monitoring
- To give you an insight into measuring background noise levels
- To develop fundamentals of noise theory and basic predictive methodologies
- To equip you with the knowledge and skills to write a competent assessment report
The course consists of 3 modules, which are structured in the following way:
Module 1 Distance Learning Pack
Designed to guide you through the basic principles of acoustics incorporating the concepts of sound pressure level, including notation and units used. This work gives a good foundation and should be attempted before attending Module 2.
Module 2 Three Day Seminar
The syllabus for module 2 will include major topics incorporating acoustic theory, environmental measurement parameters, noise reduction techniques, Legislation and standards, instrumentation and measurement. There is also a heavy practical element of the course to familiarise you with the techniques of measurement and fundamental operation of instruments.
Module 3 Environmental based project
This can either be produced using results from measurements taken during module 2 or can be a project of your choice, which involves the production of an environmental noise survey report. This report is the basis of certification for the course and is marked by your tutor. On successful completion, a certificate of competence will be issued.
