This program takes the student through a complete look at BAS components, processes, and use scenarios.

The purpose is to provide a foundational set of knowledge upon which the student can build their career.

All of my other courses are dependent on a student having this foundational knowledge.


Students will do a comprehensive study of control sequences. We will move from simple terminal units all the way to complex central plants. During this course, the student will learn the theory specific to systems control.

While this course will address theory, it is theory tempered by my experience with over a decade of working on some of the most complex projects in the world.

Students will learn the why behind BAS control strategies and will leave with a solid understanding of “how” systems work.


In this course, I take the student from start to finish through the process of designing a BAS. Students begin by reviewing a set of mechanical drawings, specifications, and scope of work.

Students perform a mock sales to operations hand-off and then move through the process of creating a full set of submittal documentation.

Along the way, students address topics like RFI’s, submittal rejection, closeout documentation, and advanced design strategies like retrofit and IP controller designs.


The purpose of this program is to make the student conversational in IT so that they confidently work with IT departments during the sales and operations phases of a BAS project.

The student will spend 6 modules learning the fundamental IT skills needed to be “conversational” and then can dive deeper with more advanced topics and hands-on exercises in the remaining 7 modules.

The world of building automation can be a scary place. There’s so much to know and very few people have experienced all the complexities of building automation.

Trying to navigate this often confusing world is made even hard due to the lack of quality training. 

The end result of this is that you go through your career never fully understanding building automation. 

What if there was a program that could show you the way. That could light up all the dark scary corners and help you to see your way down the path that is your career.

Building Automation Systems A to Z is that way. Learn more by clicking below.
