This ten hour online course discusses how building commissioning has emerged as the preferred method of ensuring that building systems are installed and operated to provide the performance envisioned by the designer.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
At the conclusion of this course, the student will learn about:
This course is intended for commissioning agent engineers, energy engineers, mechanical engineers and any other engineers who are involved with the commissioning process.
Benefit for Attendee
Attendee of this course will be able to have a broader understanding of continuous commissioning in several aspects of a total building system.
This course describes Continuous Commissioning basics and benefits. The course also describes specific energy improvement measures related to water/steam distribution systems, central chiller and heating plants, thermal storage systems. In addition multiple case studies are discussed to show real continuous commissioning retrofit applications.
This course is primarily based on the Continuous Commissioning Guidebook for Federal Energy Managers Maximizing Building Efficiency and Comfort; DOE – Federal Energy Management Program – October 2002.
