Pulaski Technical College Offering Two Newly Approved 4LU|HSW Courses

Pulaski Technical College has joined AIA as an Allied Member and CES Provider with two newly approved 4 hour LU|HSW classes offered back to back October 22, 2014 in Little Rock and November 17 at NWACC in Bentonville.

8:00a.m.
Building Science for Architects.(CABS 2001) will cover the house as a system and the “why” that is behind the what and how. A high performance house that is comfortable with good air quality and low energy bills does not happen by accident. It is a combination of the components of the house and the way in which they interact that determine performance. Learn why those old wall sections don’t work in a high performance home. Learn the difference in best building practice and common practice and how to ensure best practice construction is specified in your designs. Learn how to ensure proper HVAC sizing and minimize duct leakage. What do you mean “define the thermal envelope?” Come see!
Ron Hughes, Instructor (4 hour
LU|HSW $125 Lunch included Register.

The 2014 Arkansas Energy Code (CABS 2002) class will cover the new 2014 Arkansas Energy Code that will go into effect January 1, 2015. Learn what is different, where the minimum code is adequate and where you may want to exceed minimum requirements. Learn about the three compliance paths and the option for visual inspections or testing envelope insulation/leakage and duct leakage and see which you want to specify. Learn about climate zone insulation changes.
