Topics include

• Radiant design overview
• Radiant cooling
• Snowmelt systems
• Hydronic systems
• Broader knowledge of how to design and value engineer in various heating applications
• More complex wiring and controls logic experience

*Students should consider attending the LoopCAD training course which immediately follows this class. This course also includes a manufacturing and quality lab tour. * It is highly recommended that students have completed the Radiant Hydronics and Design course before attending this class.

Radiant Hydronics and Design
This three-day training covers design and installation of hydronic based systems.

During the course students will;

• Learn the importance of designing toward human comfort

AquaSAFE Levels I and II
This one-day training shows how to install AquaSAFE™(link), Uponor’s Residential fire sprinkler system. AquaSAFE™ Level I (available as an online course here) is a 4 hour walkthrough of NFPA 13D; the standard for the installation and design of residential fire protection in one and two-family dwellings, manufactured homes, and townhomes. From this course, student will gain knowledge of how systems are designed and what Uponor’s design and best installation practices are. The second part of the training, AquaSAFE™ Level II, is a comprehensive hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art facility where students will install and test a residential sprinkler system as well as learn how to conduct an estimate. Following the course, students will then be able to install residential fire protection system provided that they have all of the proper licensing required in their area to do so. This course also includes a manufacturing tour.

*Contractors need to complete both level I and Level II trainings to install sprinkler systems. If the online course is used, hands-on training needs to be conducted on your first sprinkler project.

French Training
Cette formation intensive de deux jours et demi vise la compréhension des éléments fondamentaux d’une conception, installation, opération et application de systèmes de chauffage par surface radiante.

Les participants pourront ainsi identifier les éléments clé d’un système de chauffage par plancher radiant et appliquer correctement leurs connaissances. Les principes de distribution et la sélection des composantes d’un réseau de distribution seront abordés. Le besoin, la sélection et l’installation de contrôles appropriés complètera cette formation

Ce module vise aussi à démystifier le chauffage radiant ainsi que les légendes urbaines qui se sont développées au fil des années.

La formation intensive se termine par un examen qui permettra aux participants réussissant celui-ci d’obtenir leur diplôme comme concepteur/installateur certifié Uponor
