Your Opinion Matters to Us

Please click here to take a short survey on virtual learning. Your feedback will guide Kinetics Noise Control in developing new CEUs, webinars, and technical presentations.

Kinetics Noise Control is committed to staying connected to our valued customers and industry constituents during this unprecedented time. To support the social distancing mandates currently in place, we are shifting over to distance learning for the foreseeable future. A key component of this is offering online technical presentations and Live CEU courses. Click on the register links below to sign up your firm for a session.

Live CEU Courses

The courses below are accredited by AIA (The American Institute of Architects) and qualify for continuing education credits for licensed architects.

Acoustics and Noise Control in Building Design

  • An overview of Acoustics and Noise Control principals and design methodology. A special emphasis is placed on looking at common building types where acoustics and noise control are often required.
  • LU | HSW: 1
  • Presented by Jason Ehrlich
  • Length: 1-hour

Designing for Room Acoustics: Principles and Myths

  • An overview of room acoustics theory and design methodology. A special emphasis is placed on performance orientated designs. Strategies for different projects types will be presented.
  • LU | HSW: 1
  • Presented by Jason Ehrlich
  • Length: 1-hour

Noise Control Construction: Beyond STC & IIC

  • An overview of Noise Control principals, construction composites and design methodology. A special emphasis is placed on performance orientated designs requiring third party acoustical consultants.
  • LU | HSW: 1
  • Presented by Jason Ehrlich
  • Length: 1-hour

Vibration Isolation

  • Equipment vibration that becomes structure borne can break out directly below or as is often the case far from the source. This CEU covers the different types of isolation needed under mechanical systems and selection criteria of different isolation media for chillers, boilers, cooling towers. Design and types of seismic and wind restraints that maintain isolation will also be discussed..
  • LU | HSW: 1
  • Presented by Kinetics HVAC
  • Length: 1-hour

Technical Presentations

Basic Vibration Isolation

  • This presentation will cover what is vibration, what type of isolator should I select, ASHRAE selection guide, and combined restraint isolators.
  • Presented by Lee Chiddention
  • Length: 45-50 minutes

Controlling Fan Noise

  • Fans produce both radiated casing and inlet and discharge noise. This noise can be bothersome if located indoors or outdoors. Review sound date published by fan manufactures per type of fan and the methods of mitigating the noise.
  • Presented by John Sofra
  • Length: 45-50 minutes

Noise Control Solutions for Air-Cooled Chillers, Condensers, and Cooling Towers

  • Explore various ways to control environmental noise radiating from different forms of cooling equipment. Whether it be a commercial or an industrial application, there are effective, proven solutions, that do not adversely affect equipment operation.
  • Presented by John Sofra
  • Length: 50-60 minutes

Seismic and Wind Restraint

  • This presentation will cover market trends, is my project seismic, code exemptions, and delegated design.
  • Presented by Lee Chiddention
  • Length: 45-50 minutes

Understand & Reducing Air System Noise

  • Various methods are discussed to control noise traveling through and radiating from duct systems. Starting with the natural attenuation of duct components and use of duct silencers types.
  • Presented by John Sofra
  • Length: 45-50 minutes
