Continuous Commissioning - Maximizing Building Energy Efficiency and Comfort

COURSE NO: M10-001
Continuous Commissioning - Maximizing Building Energy Efficiency and Comfort
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes Continuous Commissioning basics and benefits.  The course also describes specific energy improvement measures related to water/steam distribution systems, central chiller and heating plants, thermal storage systems.  In addition multiple case studies are discussed to show real continuous commissioning retrofit applications.


Building commissioning has emerged as the preferred method of ensuring that building systems are installed and operated to provide the performance envisioned by the designer.  While most commissioning processes focus on bringing building operation to the original design intent, Continuous Commissioning focuses on optimizing HVAC system operation and control for the existing building conditions.  It is an ongoing process to resolve operating problems, improve comfort, optimize energy use and identify retrofits for existing commercial and institutional buildings and central plant facilities.


This 10 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of continuous commissioning.
