Building Systems Self-Paced Training Course
The Building Systems self-paced course explains the details of the various building systems that are the foundation of the construction industry. Starting from the ground up, we analyze the basic components, materials and techniques that comprise the buildings we see every day.
This course was designed specifically for novice estimators and those outside of the construction industry to help them gain an understanding of the basic systems one would encounter in new construction, renovation and facilities management. It explores typical industry processes, why specific materials are used together and how various systems in a building are interconnected.
By explaining the physical relationships between building components, while introducing key construction industry terminology and avoiding overly technical explanations one might expect in an engineering-based course, this course is ideal for professionals transitioning into a construction or facilities oversight position or non-construction professional involved in capital improvement projects.
