PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR QUALITY FIRST FORCED AIR COURSE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED SO THAT IT IS COMPLIANT WITH CSA-F280-12. WE HOPE TO HAVE THIS READY FOR DELIVERY ASAP. WE WILL SEND AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO OUR MEMBERSHIP WHEN TRAINING IS AVAILABLE.
TECA's Quality First™ Forced Air Guidelines course includes room-by-room heat loss & heat gain for systems with A/C coils and heat pumps; equipment selection to heat loss requirements for furnaces, A/C coils, and heat pumps; and duct sizing & layout to selected equipment capacity for standard and low pressure systems. Successful participants of the 24-hour course receive a registered number on a certificate and wallet card.
Development of the new heat gain/heat pump material was funded in part by the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines & Petroleum Resources under the Energy Efficient Buildings program. The development of minimum standards for the correct sizing, design and installation of high efficiency equipment and systems is the basic building block to the achievement of the government's target reductions in energy consumption.
Manuals include technical information and documents necessary to meet requirements of municipal inspection authorities. TECA's Quality First™ Forced Air Guidelines databases are made available to inspection authorities on request for purposes of confirming successful completion and issued number. Registered Forced Air Guidelines numbers must be renewed every two years.
Course fees include 22 hours of instruction, the 2-hour exam, and the Quality First™ Forced Air Guidelines Manual (provided at the start of class). Software is not included. In some locations for intensive sessions, lunch may be provided. Course fees will be adjusted accordingly.
The Homeowners Protection Office recognizes and approves TECA’s Quality First Forced Air Course for Continuing Professional Development Points.
