This four-day advanced course on recommissioning (RCx) covers all the stages of the process: planning, investigation, implementation, hand-over and monitoring. These stages are presented in detail to allow trainees to develop a coherent understanding of the entire process and reap all anticipated benefits. The fundamental principles regarding the use of mechanical systems in buildings are discussed and good practices for testing and verification are examined to help trainees develop in-depth understanding of the investigation stage.
To share insight on how to maintain the benefits of the RCx process throughout the life cycle of buildings, the course not only teaches building operating staff on the persistence strategies to be implemented, but also highlights the appropriate interventions in energy monitoring to be carried out by third parties.
This CanmetENERGY (Natural Resources Canada) advanced course on recommissioning (RCx) has trained 75 professionals in the Province of Quebec. Upon course completion, trainees may choose to take a competency examination. The course and examination are both recognised by the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles of Québec as part of the process of certifying recommissioning agents for mechanical systems in buildings.
Targeted clients include experienced technical staff, such as:

There will be an optional but appreciated 45-min informal networking session at the end of the first day so you can get to know your fellow participants better; it starts after the Q&A at around 5:15 pm CDT.
The following topics are covered:
Ari joined Prism’s Energy Team in 2013. His work encompasses conducting energy audits and performing analyses, as well as identifying and implementing savings opportunities. He is involved with the CleanBC Program that focuses on reducing GHG emissions with electrification and FortisBC thermal audits which focus on reducing natural gas consumption.
He has experience with building mechanical systems, optimizing building automation systems, and performing building control upgrades that result in energy savings. Ari has prepared and presented many online training sessions for energy industry representatives including energy managers, energy specialists, facility managers and building operators. Ari will be an instructor for a retro-commissioning course at the British Columbia Institute of Technology starting March 2020.
Iram is involved in all aspects of mechanical systems performance analysis and enhancements at Prism Engineering, and has over ten years of experience in managing energy efficiency retrofit projects. He provides conceptual and detailed mechanical design drawings and specifications and carries out installation reviews. His background in feasibility and risk analysis studies, combined with his keen interest in sustainability and energy efficiency, make him a valuable part of our team. Since 2010, Iram has been involved with the development and delivery of online training material, as well as in-class sessions at BCIT for their Sustainable Energy Management Advance Certificate program; teaching courses in building and energy systems, and energy audits.
Iram has facilitated a number of RETScreen Training sessions and is a Canmet Energy approved NRCan RETScreen Trainer. He is also one of the lead trainers for BCIT’s Sustainable Energy Management Associate Certificate program. RETScreen is one of the programs introduced in the Building Systems course.
