How are systems controlled?
How should specific HVAC systems react when another HVAC system changes state?
How do you make sense out of control sequences so that you can design, sell, install, service, and operate your Building Automation System?
Understanding control sequences IS the difference between those who succeed in BAS and those who don't. Control Sequence Fundamentals WILL teach you how to understand control sequences. But even more, Control Sequences Fundamentals teaches you the lost art of systems based thinking and will EMPOWER you to truly UNDERSTAND how and why systems operate.
If you are struggling with the following problems then Control Sequence Fundamentals is for you:
You don't have to deal with these problems any longer!
Control Sequence Fundamentals WILL teach you EXACTLY what you need to know to SUCCEED in the world of Building Automation.

About the Instructor
My name is Phil Zito and I am going to provide you and your team the training that you need to help you grow your business and succeed even more in the world of Building Automation.
My backstory: I started back in 2007 with no knowledge of BAS. I got let go from my first job in BAS and fought my way back into the field within two weeks. I know what it's like to struggle with learning BAS while working a full-time job.
But here's the deal. From that point on I dedicated myself to mastering BAS.
Through the help of some great mentors and many, many long nights of self-study I taught myself BAS, IT, and Systems integration. Over the course of 10 years I went from a struggling technician to, leading a $60M dollar branch with 22 techs and project managers, and before I resigned to start Building Automation Monthly I was leading the technical systems integration program at Johnson Controls for a $250M line of business.
I know exactly what you need to know and I have the field experience to back it up!
“Everyone is capable of succeeding in Building Automation. All you need is the right guide to show you the way and point out the landmines along the path. I am that guide.”
