Building Environmental Systems Certificate

The training focuses on the building as a system in which heating, refrigeration, air handling, electricity, controls, and water treatment are interwoven and connected. Each course is delivered within the framework of the overall operation of the building so that students understand how their actions affect the entire system.

Creative solutions to improve energy efficiency and environmental management of the building are sought so that the owner or manager may maintain an economically competitive position. The student is able to integrate these components in the Energy Management component of the Building Environmental Systems training.

The program is recognized by Natural Resources Canada, Ontario Ministry of Energy, and the Interprovincial Facilities Accreditation Committee. Seneca College in Toronto, along with other community colleges, including St. Clair College in Windsor, has been delivering this certificate program for over twenty years.
