Building Science Basics Challenge TestThe Building Science Basics Challenge Test confirms a learner's existing level of building science knowledge.

Building Science Basics introduces you to the basic premise of building science and energy efficiency in cold climates: understanding the house as a system. There are many components in this system: the building envelope, the surrounding environment, the occupants. The aim of this course is to help the learner develop a working knowledge of how these components are affected by the interactions of heat, air and moisture flow in a house, and how those interactions impact indoor air quality and the need for ventilation.

Building Science Basics is a prerequisite for all Blue House Energy courses and is used as a prerequisite for some classroom training programs. If your level of understanding of building science is high, you may challenge the final test. You may take this test only once. Passing the final test with a grade of at least 80% allows you to register for other courses. If you do not pass the exam, you will be issued a credit for the fees (net any applicable taxes) towards the purchase of Building Science Basics. (Some classroom training programs use the Challenge Exam only, this credit may not apply).

Mike Rogers: Foundations of Increased Sales and ProfitsMany contracting companies don’t build the roadmap to success or align marketing with sales, and as a result end up wasting valuable leads with ineffective sales. Maybe, for example, you are not packing as much punch as you could into that initial phone call with a potential customer, or maybe you’re still committing some major marketing “don’ts” in your sales process. Perhaps you simply need a few sales tips to take your marketing to the next level.

This course will help you align your business to drive sales and help you avoid common sales pitfalls.

Foundations of Increased Sales and Profits is led by Mike Rogers (1964-2018), a legendary trainer in the building performance industry. Mike was a key person in setting up the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (HPwES) program across the US. He was also principal consultant to the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. In the past several years, Mike criss-crossed the continent, providing business management training to hundreds of contracting companies, as well as delivering dozens of webinars for BPI’s GoldStar Contractor program. We’re proud to offer this course, preserving and continuing Mike’s knowledge, enthusiasm, and understanding of the industry.

While the course is aimed at residential contractors who focus on energy efficiency improvements, home performance and weatherization, increasing sales and profits is the goal of all contractors and builders in the residential construction industry. Don’t leave that money on the table!

Building Strong Market Infrastructure for Canada's Retrofit EconomyThis session distills information from a recent report and sets out a series of comprehensive and specific actions for governments and, more importantly, for industry to build one of the world’s most robust and dynamic retrofit economies by 2030. CaGBC’s research demonstrates that national targets can only be reached by reducing the emissions of the millions of square feet of existing institutional, commercial, and residential buildings across the country. Yet, while green building approaches, practices, and technologies are being widely adopted for new buildings, there is an underinvestment in the retrofit of Canada’s existing building stock to drive energy and GHG reductions. Correcting this underinvestment requires the development of a strong retrofit economy where the market takes the lead in transforming Canada’s built environment to help fight climate change and create new economic opportunities for Canadians.

Guideline 36: Best in Class HVAC Control SequenceASHRAE Guideline 36, High-Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems, was created to develop and maintain best-in-class standardized HVAC control sequences. This guideline is all about the concept of “less is more.” It allows engineers to reduce engineering time by adapting standard sequences already proven to perform. It minimizes programming and commissioning time for contractors. ASHRAE Guideline 36 reduces energy consumption, cost, and system downtime with more resilient systems, control sequence compliance, and diagnostic software. The guideline also promotes communication between specifiers, contractors, and operators by creating a language of common terms.
This course introduces the current version of ASHRAE Guideline 36, which focuses on variable-air-volume (VAV) systems. The discussion will include the research underlying the current sequences and ongoing and planned future research intended to develop additional advanced sequences for other HVAC system types. In this course, attendees will learn about the ASHRAE Guideline 36 sequences and how they improve energy efficiency, thermal comfort, and indoor air quality. Attendees will also learn how to specify sequences for this guideline.

Advanced Designs for Net Zero BuildingsThis advanced course is for professional engineers and architects who want to expand their practice to include the design, construction, and operation of zero energy (net zero) buildings. The first principle of zero energy design is to make the building as energy efficient as possible. On-site renewable energy systems will then be added to achieve these efficiency goals. If adequate on-site zero energy is not feasible, then options for off-site renewable energy should be explored. The test for zero energy is at the energy meter, so proper commissioning and operator training are critical to success. The zero energy principles outlined above will be presented with case studies and examples showing how other design professionals have met the zero energy goal.PDHs.

Laboratory Exhaust Stacks: Safe and Energy-Efficient DesignThis course is designed to educate Engineers, Industrial Hygienists, facility owners, and Researchers on the proper methods to design and evaluate laboratory exhaust systems to avoid adverse re-entrainment of the exhaust into nearby air intakes. Improperly designed exhaust systems (even those that meet prescriptive code requirements) can cause chemical and biological contaminant exposure levels to be higher at nearby air intake locations than they are in the actual laboratory; potentially creating unsafe conditions throughout the entire building and neighboring buildings.
As part of this course, the attendees will learn basic guidelines on how to properly locate, size, and operate laboratory exhaust systems to minimize the potential for adverse re-entrainment of the exhaust. Implementing these guidelines is critical for maintaining adequate air quality within the laboratory, avoiding both short term health hazards, as well as improving the long-term health and welfare of all of the building occupants.
This course will also provide information on how the energy consumption of these systems can be greatly reduced by applying smart technology to the control systems. The energy savings are often on the order of $0.50/cfm per year. These are funds that may then be available to expand the research opportunities, potentially allowing us to avoid or minimize the impact of future pandemics.

Building Enclosure Control Layers BundleIf you are a designer or builder who wants to achieve a high-performing, durable Passive House building, you need to understand control layers. Control layers are materials and systems of materials that are specially designed, selected, and detailed to control water, vapour, and air. They are placed throughout the building, from the roof, walls, and floor to the below-grade enclosure assemblies, details, and interfaces. They consist of membranes and other materials typically described as air barriers, vapour barriers, and water-resistive barriers, or collectively as critical barriers.

The design, selection, and placement of control layers can be challenging. Given the highly insulated nature of passive house buildings, even small mistakes in water and air control can create problems. Simply adding insulation to traditional wall and roof assemblies is risky, so air and vapour control practices must be adjusted to consider the assembly layers and details. Therefore, to design and construct effective passive house buildings, designers and builders must understand the building science behind control layers.
