Quality First™ Heat Loss / Heat Gain Courses

ATTENTION: In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, TECA is taking precautionary measures to protect our Quality First course registrants and instructors from any further risks associated with this virus.   As we move into the Fall of 2021 we will assess and at that time we hope to start delivering a combination of both in-classroom and virtual training.  

We are currently securing course delivery dates & times for the Fall / Winter 2021 training season with our instructors and these will be posted to our web site as confirmed.  

REGISTER TO ATTEND ON-LINE: https://www.teca.ca/quality-first-courses-offered.php?id=8&online=Yes


We apologize for any inconvenience the cancellation of in-class training may have caused; however, these are unique circumstances and the health and safety of our registrants and instructors is of the utmost importance. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

To those that have paid and registered for Quality First training during this timeframe, the TECA office will be reaching out to you with respect to issuing you a refund or credit on your account.

The course is intended to help participants perform accurate and code-compliant heat loss and heat gain calculations. The BC Building Code calls for CSA F280-12 for calculation of heat loss and heat gain, for Part 9 buildings. The TECA Heat Loss / Gain software has been designed to give users an accurate and simple way to calculate heating and cooling loads by the CSA F280-12 calculation methods.

The training manual elaborates on the dynamics of heat loss and heat gain. It is critical that users of the software understand what inputs are required by the software. The TECA Heat Loss / Heat Gain software comes with a comprehensive users manual for applying the software accurately.  

  • Heat loss and heat gain for rooms; by CSA-prescribed calculation methods, and by applying the TECA software
  • Heat loss and heat gain for the building; by CSA-prescribed calculation methods, and by applying the TECA software
  • Minimum heating and cooling system requirements
  • Heating and cooling loads can be easily transferred to the TECA Hydronics or Forced Air software

Participants of this 1-day course will receive a Certificate of Completion.  There is no exam.
