Planning Solar Water Heating Systems - 3 PDH

Email
This course provides guidance for the planning of active solar energy systems to preheat domestic and service water. The systems treated by this publication are liquid based. Guidelines apply to the larger commercial-scale applications that require an effort on the part of the designer, as opposed to residential-sized "packaged" systems, which in the past have been available from a number of manufacturers. The concepts developed in this document are targeted for new construction, although most are also appropriate for retrofit applications.

Thank you for your quick response.  I can take unlimited courses for up to one year?  That means I can apply some of the courses for this year’s  deadline, and take additional courses after that toward my next period deadline!

Thank you. I finish a test when I am in a flight for a business trip so when I log in to your website, I can enter all answers.

Wow, an email from a real person and not a pre-written response.  That is very refreshing.  I will be sure to recommend this site to others in my field!
