In 2019, we have added to our comprehensive range of classroom based courses by launching a new e-learning platform. You can now learn at your own pace, in your own time and in the comfort of your home or office. There are three new e-learning courses: Understanding BeMS the basics, Understanding BeMS cooling and Understanding BeMS Heating.

These 45-minute courses will give you an overview of all elements relating to the BMS. Using periodic quizzes & audio narration, this course keeps the participant engaged throughout the training. There are online assessments after each section and the participant is expected to score at 80% or above to pass. Once you have passed the course you will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Understanding BeMS Basics – Level 1 – with this course you will discover four main elements:

  • Fundamentals which includes building characteristics, building loads and simple control theory.
  • Controllers which covers inputs and outputs, hardware and the build-up of the application.
  • Energy Controls: from front end supervisor to time schedules with explanation of optimisation & weather compensation.
  • Building Energy Management System Architecture including communication protocols, basic networks and IoT.

Understanding BeMS COOLING – Level 1 – with this course you will discover four main elements:

  • Chilled Water Generation looks at Refrigerant Law, Cooling Plant, the Compression Chiller, the Absorption Chiller,
    Heat Pumps and Variable Refrigeration Flow systems.
  • Chilled Water Distribution, explores different cooling circuits, the relationship between the Chiller and the Cooling
    Towers, Dry Air Cooling and Direct Expansion Cooling.
  • Energy Controls looking at Chilled Water Reset both entering and leaving the chiller and chiller sequencing.
  • Terminal Units, covers Chilled Beams both active and passive along with Split Air Conditioning Units.

Understanding BeMS HEATING – Level 1 – with this course you will discover four main elements:

  • Hot Water Generation covers heating plant, conventional and condensing boilers, heat pumps, solar power, biomass
    boilers and combined heat and power.
  • Hot Water Distribution around your building for heating and hot water services.
  • Energy Controls, looking at weather compensation, boiler sequencing, flow limiting, boost, frost protection and
    system alarms.
  • Heating System Devices, covers different types of valves, pumps and their ability to save energy, sensor positioning

Understanding BeMS Air Conditioning Course – with this course you will discover four main elements:

  • The principles of Air Handling Units covers the construction and types of units along with the benefits of heat recovery and humidification control.
  • Air Distribution explores fire and smoke control, night purging, displacement air conditioning and natural ventilation.
  • Energy Controls looks at outside air compensation, low limit control, maintaining air quality on demand, free cooling and sensors.
  • Terminal Units includes fan coils, variable air volume boxes and basic fan coil controllers.
