Mechanical (HVAC) Courses

Mechanical services are at the centre of a building's internal environment and environmental impact. To enable you to take an active part in the design, installation or operation of these services you should both understand the principles and be able to apply technologies. To provide you with this knowledge and understanding, at the core of our course portfolio is a 3 day intensive Mechanical Services Explained course, ideal for engineers from different disciplines with extended responsibility for mechanical services as well as graduate schemes. This course is further supported by 1 day courses covering topical technologies, such as biomass and ground source energy systems.


Mechanical Services Explained – 3 Days

Days: 3
CPD hours: 21

The course will introduce many building engineering systems from water supply, plumbing and drainage, through heating and ventilation systems to more complex systems for air conditioning. It will emphasise the relative merits of different systems and explain the context of current regulatory and professional practice related both to design and maintenance.


Mechanical Services 1 Day Overview

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7


This course is a one day overview of Mechanical Services. The course will cover the principles of design and loading calculations for mechanical services, as well as the influence carbon reduction and sustainability has on the selection of plant and systems. 
 


Practical Controls for HVAC Systems

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This course concentrates on achieving the deliverable rather than explaining control theory. How do we control different systems? What are we trying to achieve? What equipment is used and how does it work? Suitable for all engineers involved in the design and maintenance of HVAC systems.


Design of Heating and Chilled Water Pipe Systems

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

To ensure pipes and pumps function at their optimum performance, it is essential to make the correct choices when designing and sizing your system. This course will give you the information you need to be confident that your designs optimise system efficiency, can be commissioned effectively and operated without expert help.


 


Introduction to Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

Covering all aspects of CHP including mini CHP, specifications, engineering recommendation G59, quality assurance for CHP (CHPQA), the climate change levy (CCL) and other regulatory issues. Aimed at engineers who wish to gain a thorough insight into CHP.


 


Design of Ductwork Systems

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This course will deal with all aspects of design and installation of ductwork systems. The day is aimed predominantly at building services design engineers and will cover design issues such as classification of ductwork systems, system layouts, spatial requirements, aesthetics and sizing.


 


Introduction to Heat Networks and Code of Practice

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7


This is a one day course aimed at providing an introduction to Heat Networks and the CoP for those who are involved in developing Heat Networks and those using or specifying the CoP.


Designing Water Efficient Hot & Cold Supplies

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

Over the last decade water efficiency has become mandatory, BS 6700 has been replaced, and there have been significant technological changes affecting the design of water supply systems in commercial and residential buildings. This course provides guidance on the essential design considerations for water and energy efficient systems.


Understanding and Application of Psychrometric Charts

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7 

This course is aimed at practitioners who need to understand the basis and application of the psychrometric chart for the analysis and design of air conditioning and ventilation systems.


Air Conditioning Systems and Cooling Systems

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This course introduces the fundamental principles of refrigeration systems and considers the optimisation of these systems for the purpose of energy efficiency. Designed for those with limited experience in this field, who wish to further their understanding of cooling systems, their component parts and their operation. Frequently encountered problems and their associated solutions are examined and explained with illustrated examples.


Gas Safety Regulations (Designing for Compliance)

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This course will provide basic information on designing gas installations and installing appliances to comply with the current (1995) Regulations, but will not cover specialist aspects of design and installation.


Variable Flow Water Systems Design

Days: 1
CPD hours: 7

This one-day course will provide you with an understanding to the different approaches to designing variable flow water systems in order to achieve the best possible outcome.
