TECA's Quality First Heat Recovery Ventilator course encompasses the proper design, installation, and commissioning and balancing of a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) or an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV). This course expands on the BC Building Code 9.32 and 9.36 requirements, and participants will leave with a comfortable understanding of the function and purpose of a balanced ventilation system.
This course provides instruction to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge to design, install and balance an HRV/ERV principal ventilation system. Manuals include technical information and documents necessary to meet requirements of Municipal Inspection Authorities. Successful participants will receive a registered number on a certificate, a wallet card and stamp.
NOTE: Course fees include 6 hours of instruction, the 2-hour exam, and the Quality First™ HRV/ERV manual, provided at the start of class. Software is not included
PLEASE NOTE THAT CURRENT VENTILATION CERTIFICATION IS A PREREQUSITE TO THIS COURSE.
IMPORTANT ENFORCEMENT REMINDER FROM THE CITY OF VANCOUVER:
The HRV stamp will be required for issued new home applications or permits that are subject to the 2019 Vancouver Building By-law (VBBL), which came into effect November 1st 2019. That means projects with permits issued before this date, or are otherwise subject to the 2014 VBBL will not require the stamp.
*HRV is meant to represent either an HRV or ERV
