GUV Training and Certification

Germicidal Ultraviolet (GUV) technology has gained significant recognition as an effective method for disinfection of air and surfaces across various industries. With its proven ability to eliminate harmful pathogens, it has become an integral component in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for employees, customers, and the general public. With that being said, it is important to train professionals responsible for the design, installation, and maintenance of germicidal GUV luminaires. This training and certification program will serve as the first step toward educating the public on the proper and safe use of Germicidal GUV. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Introduction to Germicidal GUV Technology 
  • Principles and Mechanisms of Germicidal GUV Disinfection 
  • Safety Considerations and Protocols 
  • Proper Installation and Maintenance of Germicidal GUV luminaires 
  • Case Studies and Real-world Applications 
  • Hands-on Training and Practical Demonstrations 
  • Certification Examination 

We have carefully designed this program to provide a comprehensive understanding of germicidal GUV technology and its effective implementation in their respective fields. By the end of the training, attendees will possess the knowledge and skills necessary to install, maintain, and utilize GUV equipment safely and effectively.  

Our esteemed panel of industry experts, who possess extensive experience in GUV technology, will facilitate the training sessions. They will share their expertise, insights, and practical guidance to ensure participants gain a thorough understanding of the subject matter. 

There will be 3 levels of GUV certification: 

  • Certified Apprentice GUV Technician (CA-GUVT)
  • Certified Senior GUV Technician (CS-GUVT) 
  • Certified GUV Management Professional (C-GUVMP)


We firmly believe that this Germicidal GUV Training and Certification Program will equip your organization with the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance its disinfection practices and promote a healthier environment. We look forward to your participation as we prepare to launch the GUV training and certification program online in the coming months.
