The Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) has launched online training for its full suite of courses.

The BCM01-06 training courses cover a wide range of topics which incorporate the latest technical information from the building controls sector which helps engineers, installers, and building owners to further their knowledge and skills within the industry.

All of the six courses will be run via an online platform over two days, in the same way that they have previously been run at training centres around the UK.

 

“This move to online training is just another way that the BCIA is responding to the demands of the industry and the needs of everyone within it.”

–Terry Sharp

President, BCIA

 

Responding to the demands of the industry

 

Terry Sharp, President of the BCIA, said: “The BCIA has been working hard to make our full suite of training courses available online to allow delegates to continue with their professional training and development during this period of lockdown.

“Training is a very important part of our industry and the BCIA has long been a supporter of the benefits of continuous training to ensure we are meeting the demands of the industry both now and in the future. This move to online training is just another way that the BCIA is responding to the demands of the industry and the needs of everyone within it.”

The first online courses will be running in May 2020 and further courses will be added to the calendar over the coming weeks. The first courses to be completed online are BCM01 Fundamentals of HVAC & Building Technology and BCM03 Hydraulics in Building Systems.
