Upcoming Training Opportunities
Trained contractors and building professionals are a vital part of helping residential and business customers achieve real energy efficiency results.
Training dates are added regularly, so please check back for future opportunities. The classroom trainings are typically three hour sessions. Webinars are usually one hour sessions. Sessions are eligible for AIA (American Institute of Architects), BPI (Building Performance Institute), and CSL (Construction Supervisor License) credits.
Mass Save® Residential Classroom Trainings
Residential Energy Code: Envelope and Building Science
Learn best practice strategies for building to meet the new energy code from foundations through roofs. Using case studies, exercises, and discussion, methods will be demonstrated to build cost-effective high performance homes.
Residential Energy Code: HVAC and Indoor Air Quality
This training will focus on HVAC equipment, indoor air quality, and the new energy code, including right sizing for heating and cooling systems. The content is grounded in the reality of what is being built in the Northeast and which current practices do not comply with the code.
Mass Save Commercial Classroom Trainings
Commercial Energy Code: Envelope and Building Science
Understand the building science principles regarding the forces that affect the movement of air and moisture through building assemblies and materials. The IECC provisions for envelope design and construction assist in avoiding structural and energy performance degradation in buildings.
Commercial Energy Code: Mechanical Provisions
Review provisions for both simple and complex mechanical systems, the importance of properly sizing and designing HVAC systems, and the code compliance obligations of the project's mechanical engineer. Other topics include proper application of code provisions for demand control ventilation and energy recovery.
Commercial Energy Code: Lighting, Lighting Controls, and Other Electrical Provisions
Lighting and lighting controls in the IECC are a critical component of energy savings. New provisions for daylit zones and outdoor lighting can be challenging to implement. Real project examples will be used to explore lighting code provisions and methodologies for calculating code compliance.
