GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMP DESIGN COURSE FOR BUILDING PROFESSIONALS

GSHP Design is a 12-hour course (covered in three 4-hour modules) and is built for Architects, Engineers, Designers, Contractors, Building Owners and Developers, and those mechanical contractors who want to consider adding a geo-side to their business.   The three modules can be purchased independently of one another or group-purchased at a discount.

Module 1: Overview of Ground‐Source Heat Pump (GSHP) Systems

APPROVED FOR  3.5 Hours of AIA Learning Units 

      November 17th 2020,   9am -to- 1pm PST

Overview of system components and types of ground heat exchangers, site characterization, thermal properties testing, and pipe fusion demonstration.  CLICK HERE for details of what you’ll learn from Instructors Steve Kavanaugh, Chad Martin, and Lance MacNevin.

Module 2: Design of Ground‐Source Heat Pump Systems

Hours of AIA Learning Units (PENDING)

December 1st 2020,   9am -to- 1pm PST

A Thirteen‐step design process, including instruction using provided software for Ground Heat Exchanger Sizing, Pump Calculations, AHRI test data corrections to design conditions, and more. Design for closed‐loop vertical ground heat exchanger and closed‐loop surface water heat exchanger connected to a commercial building. It is assumed that the attendee has gone through Module 1 or already has a basic understanding of GSHPs.  CLICK HERE for details of what you’ll learn from Instructors Steve Kavanaugh and Tyler Harbeck.

Module 3: Design of Ground‐Source Heat Pump Systems in California and Other Special Topics

Hours of AIA Learning Units (PENDING)

January 26th, 2021,   9am -to- 1pm PST

Design considerations for open loop (well) systems, cold regions, and things to know when designing any ground‐source heat pump system in California. It is recommended that attendees participate in the previous modules; however, it is not mandatory. Module 3 presents special and related topics that were not developed during the main design module, Module 2.  CLICK HERE  for details of what you’ll learn from Instructors Steve Kavanaugh, Ed Lohrenz, and Lisa Meline.
