Michigan Industrial Ventilation Conference (MIVC)

The Michigan Industrial Ventilation Conference (MIVC) provides expert industrial ventilation training MiIVC logo 780and is the:

  • OLDEST ENTITY in North America dedicated to providing industrial ventilation education. Founded in February of 1952, the MIVC remains a primary resource for those interested in learning about the design, operation, management and maintenance, and troubleshooting of industrial ventilation systems. The conference continues to offer its three original multi-day course tracks focused on the design of industrial ventilation systems, plus two additional multi-day course tracks addressing industrial ventilation and three optional, one-day workshops on specific aspects associated with industrial ventilation system design and operation.

  • LARGEST ENTITY for the provision of industrial ventilation education, both in terms of numbers of instructors and people trained. With a staff of 30+ expert instructors from across North America and thousands of attendees, the MIVC is your premier resource for industrial ventilation education.

  • MOST COST-EFFECTIVE RESOURCE for industrial ventilation education. The MIVC provides the most value while meeting your industrial ventilation education and training needs.
