What you will learn

** This 4-day course is based on the new CSA Standard F280-12. Students are first introduced to the basic principles of building science and heat loss/gain. Through various in-class exercises, you will learn how to determine the thermal resistance (R value) of various building assemblies such as walls and ceilings, as per CSA F280-12. Students are taught how to accurately calculate room by room heat loss and gain while considering the influences of occupancy, exposure, ventilation, air leakage across the building envelope and more.

THE BEST PART: With the successful completion of this course, participants will be recognized by municipal building officials and plans examiners for having the technical competency needed to perform residential load calculations and size heating and cooling appliances accordingly.
