To meet the technical skills gap in the BMS sector we have developed this industry controls course in conjunction with Innotech Controls Ltd. There is an increasing requirement for facilities/maintenance technicians, plumbers and electricians to understand these systems as they are likely to come across them during their usual line of work now or in the future. The course will cover many aspects from BMS/HVAC hardware, controls theory fundamentals and hands on applications engineering that can then be applied in industry.
