The Canadian Hydronics Council is promoting certification courses for hydronic system designers and installers.
The council’s chair, Richard Peck, says “Certification is the next logical step in a process that began with the development of the CSA B214 Installation Code for Hydronic Systems. We have a national standard, we have training curriculum endorsed by industry and now we are cloisng the loop with a nationally recognized certification program that will carry weight with building officials.”
The British Columbia Insititute of Technology in Burnaby B.C. and the Northern Institute of Technology have developed curricula endorsed by the Hydronics Council and are ready to launch courses.
