Control Sequence Fundamentals

$999.00

This course provides a comprehensive study of HVAC control sequences. While this course will address theory, it is theory tempered by over a decades worth of experience working on some of the most complex BAS projects in the world. Students will learn the why behind BAS control strategies and will leave with a solid understanding of “how” systems work.

Student Testimonial

​"I feel really good about using this course because you can complete it on your own time. and being in controls we're travelling all the time so trying to get us in a classroom setting is very difficult. I've actually gone thru controls courses at MATC and I feel that your method of teaching was great and even better than being in a classroom setting."
