Participants in the Radon Measurement course will gain an understanding of radon, its scientific properties and known health effects and the knowledge of Health Canada’s radon measurement protocols. The course will also cover the C-NRPP approved devices for radon measurement, the proper interpretation of results obtained in residential settings, and some basic radon entry and mitigation concepts.
Participants in the Radon Mitigation course will gain the knowledge and hands-on training for radon entry and mitigation analysis and planning.
PRE-REQUISITE: Participants must successfully complete the Radon Measurement Course prior to the mitigation course. Successful participants may be certified by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP) which is recognized by Health Canada.
WUFI® Training Workshop
WUFI® is an acronym for Wärme Und Feuchte Instationär, which, translated, means heat and moisture transiency. Today’s residential and commercial building envelopes in North America are required to be energy efficient, which mainly means the envelope needs to meet R value and air tightness requirements. Practical experience in the last decades all over the world and physical principles show that a higher risk of moisture failures go along with these energy efficiency requirements.
The WUFI® Workshop will educate students in the principles of building science, based on the latest research, as well as train them how to do hygrothermal performance assessments using the WUFI® tool to eventually design a durable building envelope. Effects like material properties, climate regions and indoor moisture generation are shown and their impact on the durability discussed.

ACI Concrete Field Testing Technician
All training will be based on the seven CSA Group A23.2-14 standard test procedures for concrete: sampling, slump, density/yield, air content, casting/initial storage of cylinders and flexural beams, and temperature of concrete.
Certification involves passing a written examination and the hands-on performance test accredited by the American Concrete Institute. It is recognized worldwide and satisfies the requirements of CSA Group A23.1-14 clause 22.214.171.124.2.
Dates for the 2018 ACI Course will be scheduled in March/April 2018.
