JPL Environmental Chamber Safety & Orientation

This ongoing course is designed to train environmental chamber owners and operators to the functional and operational requirements for environmental chambers and to protect deliverable hardware and personnel during chamber operations. An Environmental Chamber is defined as any enclosure or device, including attached equipment, capable of creating a temperature, vacuum, pressure, humidity and/or gaseous environment that can be used for the purpose of stressing, testing, characterizing, baking-out or verifying a deliverable product.

Note: Environmental chamber operators must successfully complete this course before receiving hands-on training and certification for a specific environmental chamber. Hands-on training and certification will be conducted by designated Environmental Test Laboratory (ETL) personnel.
