John Siegenthaler, P.E. wrote the book on hydronic system design - literally. This fall, he’s teaching a ten-week, advanced design course online for 50 professionals. It’s a details-oriented design course that combines video lessons, reading assignments, and hands-on calculations and homework. Siegenthaler says: “I’ve dedicated my career to teaching hydronic system design. This new format gives me a chance to get into more details than are possible with a single webinar. This course will be focused on state-of-the-art approaches for those who want to be on the cutting edge of hydronics technology.”
“Mastering Hydronic System Design”, starting Sept. 30, is offered in partnership with BNP Media, parent company of Plumbing & Mechanical magazine, The ACHR NEWS, PM Engineer, Supply House Times and Radiant & Hydronic e-News. BNP’s CE Campus is an ongoing source of professional continuing education. BNP Plumbing Group Publisher Bob Miodonski says: “For 87 years BNP has been publishing great content. We see online training as an extension of that mission. A class of this depth just wasn’t possible five years ago. I’m excited to be a part of something this personal and detailed.”
HeatSpring Learning Institute is producing and delivering the course through its Cammpus software platform. More than 7,500 building professionals have taken courses on Cammpus - it’s the leading education software in the high-performance building industry. HeatSpring President Brian Hayden says: “We love working with true experts. Projects like this are why I love my job.”
About the Course: “Mastering Hydronic System Design”
This is a unique opportunity to take an advanced hydronic design course with John Siegenthaler. The course provides a detailed discussion of the design elements underlying modern hydronic heating systems. It presents both design concepts and design tools for optimizing hydronic heating systems in a variety of contemporary applications. It is not meant as an introduction course. Rather, it is structured to combine a student’s existing knowledge, with new approaches and analytical methods that are specifically focused on the cutting-edge of hydronic heating. The goal is to equip students to design state-of-the-art systems for residential and light commercial buildings that deliver unsurpassed comfort, efficiency and reliability.
