Join Rob Metzinger, President of Safe Living Technologies Inc. as an instructor in this seminar as he provides lectures, instrumentation usage labs, instructor-led discussions, and demonstrations. This course allows you to participate in real-world case studies and provides practical solutions for identifying, detecting and mitigating electromagnetic emissions (RF, EMF, EMEs) using professional level Gigahertz Solutions measurement equipment.

Seminar Synopsis

This seminar provides techniques for identification, detection and mitigation of electromagnetic radiation (EMR); the theory of EMR is demonstrated with practical examples and case studies based on actual home inspections. Particular emphasis is placed on the bedroom as well as on EMR that may enter the house or commercial building via the public water supply system. The proper instruments used in the detection procedure are demonstrated, abatement techniques are explained, and one can also learn how to discuss these techniques with clients, electricians and plumbers. This seminar includes lectures, hands on labs for instrumentation usage, demonstrations and interactive discussions.

Topics Include:

   • Fundamental definitions of energy and how electricity is a special class of energy

   • Concepts of AC electric and AC magnetic fields

   • EMF low and high frequency ranges including radio frequency and cellular phone

   • Definition of AC electric and magnetic fields and DC electric and magnetic fields

   • Ionizing radiation

   • Static electric and magnetic fields

Prerequisite Courses: IBE 204.3 ElectroMagnetic Radiation
