Overview

Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is held online over 5 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern (There will be a one-hour lunch break each day in addition to a number of breaks during each day.)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify and understand recent changes introduced in the codes/standards and their implications on the design and operation of HVAC equipment and systems.
  • Plan and design HVAC equipment and systems in compliance with applicable codes and standards.
  • Identify and Select procedures for efficient operation of various HVAC equipment and systems.
  • Understand which compliance option is most suitable for a given circumstance.
  • Identify regulations which pertain to your own specific
  • Gain insight into how to modify/adjust current systems in order to comply.

Description
Understanding codes and regulations governing design, maintenance and operation of HVAC Equipment and Systems is a must for all individuals who have interest in and/or working with HVAC systems. Proper design and operation of HVAC Equipment and Systems not only requires a thorough understanding of relevant codes and standards, but also it requires one to stay up-to-date with all frequent changes introduced in these codes and standards.

This course focuses on enabling participants to be knowledgeable with heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems with respect to requirements of Part 5 (Environmental Separation) and Part 6 (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) of the Provincial Building Code. The course also covers information on applicable standards referenced in these codes such as ASHRAE standards 55, 62.1, and 90.1. Case studies and workshops will be used to explore the prescriptive compliance options and the performance compliance options available in these codes/standards. Recent changes introduced in these codes and standards and their implications on the design and operation of HVAC Equipment and Systems will also be addressed.
