New Courses:

I would work with you, the client, to design, develop, and implement courses (and/or of any off-school project) to suit your needs.

I can tailor my courses to Ontario Building Code HVAC house exam standards. This course would allow building Inspection staff to inspect residential HVAC systems installations for compliance to current codes and standards.

Ask me for an estimate.

Current Courses:

Presently I am working on or have developed manuals for and presented the following HVAC courses:

  • Building Inspectors Generalist program HVAC portion built manual and presented in-house. Instruction to building inspection personnel in the art of inspecting Residential HVAC to OBC current standards
  • Wood Heating systems built manual and presented in-house
  • Kitchen Exhaust systems to OBC 2001/ NFPA 96 built manual and presented in-house
  • Hydronics for the competent inspector

Ask to see my manuals, the inspection process, section by section fully pictured and explained, an excellent way for your staff to understand the HVAC requirements to better able to inspect to those requirements.

Let me quote you on a course tailor made to your local municipal requirements, a full knowledge of heating from the basics up, or section by section modules related to the Ontario Building Code sections that deal only and totally with HVAC disciplines. 9.33- 6.2.4. and 9.32 are the basics you would need.

Further modules can be added as your staff become more competent at their new discipline:

  • Hydronic Heating
  • Wood Heating installation
  • Kitchen exhaust systems
  • Fire ratings and fire damper installation and multiple family dwellings

Your Building Inspection staff will be able andOAHI Logo
competent to inspect Installed HVAC system to current OBC standards.

All of my in college courses for Home Inspection are approved to the critically high standard required by O.A.H.I. and are accepted toward the accreditation required by O.A.H.I. for you to become certified to R.H.I.
