Training Location: NYSWDA Training Center (Building 1) – 5869 Fisher Road, East Syracuse, NY 13057

Course Description:
This four day course, which includes classroom and heating lab sessions, will prepare you to take the BPI Heating Professional written and field tests. Using NYSWDA's state-of-the art Heating Lab, attendees will train on 15 of the most common residential heating systems, from 70% efficient atmospheric furnaces to 90%+ efficient two-stage ECM blower furnaces. Additionally, trainees will become knowledgeable on gas and oil-fired hydronic boilers, their controls and components. Attendees will be introduced to system load and sizing concepts, system design, duct system diagnostics, and proper maintenance and efficiency analysis. This is a challenging course, and as such, NYSWDA strongly recommends that attendees hold BPI Building Analyst certification and have strong HVAC experience. After the trainees successfully complete the written portion of the test, we will schedule them to return for the field test.  Candidates have one year from the time they pass the written test to complete their field test.
