Presented online in a series of three live 2 hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide the knowledge, procedures, and techniques needed to understand, test and balance the air side of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) constant air volume and variable air volume systems.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


This practical and informative course will begin with a brief review of HVAC airside components as well as forms used in testing and balancing. Full coverage will also be provided of the instruments which are necessary to test:

  • Fan and motor rotational speeds
  • Fan motor voltage and amperage
  • Fan and duct pressures
  • System and component air velocity and volume

The instructor will then explain in easy-to-follow terms the equations and calculations which are needed to test and balance air systems. You will learn specific procedures and methods utilized in air testing and balancing, accompanied by numerous examples to illustrate the details, including filling out test and balance forms. Both read-and-set and proportional balancing methods for constant air volume and variable air volume systems will be covered.

This course is designed to be of value to anyone interested in learning about air systems testing and balancing, including both those interested in working in the field or starting a test and balance agency, as well as architects, HVAC engineers, building and engineering managers, building reps, utilities reps, and commissioning agencies. Material covered can also provide relevant and helpful training for those preparing for certification exams in the areas of testing and balancing, commissioning or energy management.
