Start, Test & Balance

   No project is complete until the equipment is properly started.  The mechanical system must be tested, balanced, and adjusted.  It must be verified that all components are the bid-accepted equipment specified and that each item is in good working order.  For the sophisticated, efficiency-driven mechanical systems of the 21st century, this is a daunting task, but one that a graduate of this course will be able to endure. 


GPro Certification

   People who build, renovate, and maintain buildings need to understand the principles of sustainability combined with trade-specific green construction.  Skilled, knowledgeable workers will be positioned to work in accordance with new regulations and to meet the expectations of owners and tenants who want healthier, environmentally sustainable, and energy-efficient homes and offices.  Graduates of this course will have ascertained that knowledge base.
