BSRIA North has announced a series of training courses from its premises in Preston, Lancashire.
Supported by BSRIA’s industry-renowned technical guides, the courses range from introductions for non-engineers or those new to the industry through to specialist training for practitioners.
Many buildings are sustainable and robust on paper, but not in reality. Soft Landings is a BSRIA-led process, developed through published guidance and the collaborative Soft Landings Network, that aims to help bridge the gap between design intent and actual performance.
Pre-Commission Cleaning of Pipework Systems, Thursday 22 March
Thorough pre-commission cleaning of pipework has become even more important with the adoption of energy efficient controls strategies that may result in low flow rates, particularly in terminal units with very small orifices in control valves. The course is aimed at those either involved in pre-commission cleaning or overseeing the process.
Introduction to Thermography, Wednesday 18 April
Thermography can provide quick diagnosis of problems in buildings and their services in commissioning, operation and maintenance. This course will enable those new to thermography to start to use it on building fabric and building services. Delegates will gain an understanding of the principles involved, the most suitable conditions and the best methods to use.
Level 1 Airtightness Testing, Monday 23 April
Since the 2006 changes to England & Wales Building Regulations and 2007 changes to the Northern Ireland Building Regulations, airtightness testing has been mandatory for new buildings. In Scotland, it became mandatory in 2011 starting with flats and maisonettes and later expanding to all new dwellings. This course provides the theory behind airtightness testing as well as “hands on” training. It culminates in a three part examination which, when passed, will enable delegates to begin the process of registration.
June Davis, BSRIA North Business Manager, said: “This fantastic collection of courses covers the full legislative spectrum to equip members and industry with a great grounding in the built environment. They will offer technical expertise in the full supply chain. The courses are not simply ‘chalk and talk’, they will be fully interactive with practical demonstrations and, in some cases, delegates will undertake simple example calculations. Where appropriate – free copies of technical guides are provided.''
