In this workshop calendar, you will find training for both HVAC Installers and Energy Advisors(EAs). All workshops will be delivered virtually unless otherwise indicated. Registration for the HVAC workshops will be limited to one individual per company. If you have others from your company who would like to take the training, they will be added to a wait-list, and then if space permits, registered for the workshop.
Residential Ventilation using Section 9.32 of the Building Code
Participants will use simple worksheets in conjunction with detailed design procedures to quickly select equipment, size ducts and specify installation and control details necessary to design ventilation systems. All content complies with Section 9.32 of the NBC/OBC/BCBC. Participants will also clearly understand when the circumstances fall outside the scope of 9.32, which will require the use of a more comprehensive standard such as CSA F326.
