The course also provides a route for delegates to gain the EA qualification on successful completion of the exam.
Delegates must have the following prior knowledge and understanding before attending the course.
The course covers the following key topic areas:
The course has exercises for the envelope area and volume calculation of:
The following items must be brought to the course:
The course has a remote examination that the delegates may undertake away from the training venue. Once the drawings for a building are sent the delegate has 24 hours to supply their calculated floor area, wall area, roof area and envelope area on a web based portal based on their calculation. On successfully passing the exam the delegate gains the EA qualification which allows the company to undertake level 2 and 3 tests providing they also have air tightness testers qualified at those levels.
