Ventilation for high-performance commercial buildings

BetterBricks and AIA Portland are partnering to bring you an all-day training on ventilation in commercial buildings. This training will help familiarize you with dedicated outside air systems (DOAS) and teach you the ventilation best practices for high-performing buildings, including HRV sizing, duct design and control options, and identifying retrofit opportunities. This technical training is approved for 6 CEUs by the Practicing Institute of Engineering (PIE) and certificates will be issued at the end of the course. Make sure to sign up soon as spaces are limited! Registration is free and lunch is included.
