HVAC – The Good, the Bad, The Ugly – CEC778

Few things in a home have more potential to improve the quality of life for home occupants than a professionally designed and properly installed HVAC system. At the very least, a system should do no harm. Unfortunately, mistakes in design and defects in installation can turn lives upside down. This course will highlight the choices that need to be made to protect the health and well-being of the occupants with a well-considered HVAC system while reducing the liability risk for the builder.

A House has to Breathe, Right? – CEC779

Everyone has heard that a house has to breathe. Does that make sense? It turns out houses don’t have lungs. So they dont likely need to breathe. But people living inside them do have to breathe. The problem arises when occupants are forced to breathe the same air over and over in substantially airtight homes. Reseach clearly shows the air in our homes is filled with a variety of contaminants that can create health complications. This course will review those contaminants of concern, their impact on health and how to reduce the risk to health and wellness using whole house ventilation.

Understanding Grounding and Bonding of Electrical Systems – CEC777

This course will focus on the purpose for grounding and understanding of the grounding systems.  Code article 250 covering grounding and bonding requirement will be overview and referenced throughout the course. The course will review the overall performance and objectives for grounding and bonding of electrical systems.  We will examine the different types of grounding systems.  We will review grounding electrodes, types, the measurement of earth grounding electrodes, and function of the electrodes.  We will evaluate grounding for fault protection, signal reference, lightning protection and safety.  In grounding we will discuss equipotential plane, bonding, along with stray voltage.  The course will review grounding of generator, transfer switches and interconnected electrical systems. This course should help the qualified individual understand different types of grounding system and how they function in these electrical systems.  The class participants will be taught to understand the use of equipotential plane as referenced in Article 680 of the NEC (Swimming Pools).  Participates will review grounding in communication networks of signaling, video, data, and alarm systems as referenced in Chapter 8 the 800 sections in the NEC of these rules for the proper operation of communication systems with the electrical system.  The participates will review a residential case that involves signaling grounding issues.
