Training & Guidance
MOLONEY & ASSOCIATES Acoustic & Environmental Consultants, have experience of lecturing to undergraduate and post-graduate courses and our consultants act as tutors and examiners for universities and higher education institutions.
We have been appointed as an Accredited Centre by the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and provide IOA approved courses in Workplace Noise and Environmental Noise. In addition, we are an Engineers Ireland approved training provider.
Certificate of Competence in Workplace Noise Risk Assessment (CCWNRA)
The accuracy and reliability of any noise assessment is primarily dependent upon the competence of the assessor. In addition, informed and appropriate advice on noise control should only be taken from competent individuals. This IOA Certificate aims to provide a recognised course of education and training to enable persons to carry out workplace noise assessments in a competent manner.
The IOA Certificate of Competence in Workplace Noise is run over five days and the courses are scheduled in line with specified IOA exam dates. The next exam will be held on the 4th of March 2016 and the dates for the course are as follows: 23 and 24 February 2017, and 1, 2 and 3 March 2017. (Click here for further details on this Workplace Noise Risk Assessment course).
Certificate of Competence in Environmental Noise Measurement (CCENM)
This IOA Certificate course addresses the legal and practical aspects of dealing with the problems of environmental noise pollution. The course focuses on the measurement, assessment and control of environmental noise. The CCENM course also runs over 5 days and the next scheduled course will be held in Cork on 2, 3, 10, 11 and 12 May 2017. (Click here for further details on this Environmental Noise Measurement course).
Both the Certificate of Competence in Environmental Noise Measurement and the Certificate of Competence in Workplace Noise Risk Assessment closely follow the prescribed IOA syllabus. However, for delegates who may wish to focus on a limited number of topics, bespoke training can be provided or selected elements of the syllabus can be combined with practical survey work at the clients’ facility.
