Please note this qualification is not open to new candidates. Contact Carolyn Hughes or Effie Koudounis with any questions.

Environmental awareness and performance are your responsibility as a mechanical services industry professional.

Candidates will begin by gaining a strong grounding in the compliance requirements of energy efficient HVAC design and industry best practice. Building on this the second unit provides a sound knowledge of the energy use implications of operational HVAC systems. The final unit applies the knowledge gained in previous units to develop skills in the delivery of energy efficient HVAC designs.

 

Course Outline

 

 

Overview

 

Qualification Code – 10370NAT

This course will enable heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals to progress their career through upgrading their skills to a specialised post-graduate qualification in energy efficient HVAC design.

Candidates will begin by gaining a strong grounding in the compliance requirements of energy efficient HVAC design and industry best practice. Building on this the second unit provides a sound knowledge of the energy use implications of operational HVAC systems. The final unit applies the knowledge gained in previous units to develop skills in the delivery of energy efficient HVAC designs.

Ongoing education is essential in the HVAC industry and the Graduate Certificate in Energy Efficient HVAC Design will assist in meeting continuing professional development requirements.

 

Units

 

To qualify for the Graduate Certificate in Energy Efficient HVAC Design (10370NAT) candidates must successfully complete all the following Units:

EEDCOM801A Comply with mechanical codes and standards for HVAC systems design

EEDMAX802A Maximise energy efficiency in building services operations

EEDEDP803A Evaluate design principles of energy efficient HVAC systems

EEDDES804A Design energy efficient HVAC systems.

Upon successful completion participants will be able to use the post nominal GCert HVAC Energy. Participants who exit the course without completing all units will receive a Statement of Attainment for those units satisfactorily completed.

 

Duration

 

This course is designed to be completed in a two year time frame.

Consider this course as you would a project.  If your registration is accepted you must be prepared to commit to various deadlines to submit your assessable work.  Whilst each unit has an estimated time commitment the amount of hours you take to work through it may vary.  This could be because of your level of existing knowledge of the topic, because you wish to investigate an area more thoroughly, or for other reasons.  It is important that you are able to manage your time to complete the unit within the timeframe.
