Controls training now offered by BCIA

The industry’s leading training courses are now being managed by the BCIA. The Building Controls Technical Training Courses are now available directly from the BCIA. They are ideal for those who want to learn the basics or more advanced theory and practice.

There are seven courses, ranging from an introduction to building controls and HVAC, to the advanced control of ventilation and air conditioning or refrigeration technology. Delegates receive unique documentation to accompany each course, which is delivered by an expert trainer.

BCIA President Ian Ellis says: “The BCIA has taken this important step to operate the courses itself because we want to ensure that the course content remains relevant to our industry and its requirements. The BCIA aims to deliver and grow the courses, investing in development for the future.” BCIA members receive a discount on training costs.

The courses are part of the BCIA’s wider commitment to training and education in the sector. “We have also recently teamed up with Eastleigh College which is now our Assessment Centre for the BEMS NVQ Diploma. This means we can now offer robust support for trainees and their employers,” says Ellis.
