This course is not suitable for experienced BMS engineers, the course was specifically developed for:

  • Mechanical consultants

  • Mechanical contractors

  • BMS new starters

  • People transitioning into the BMS industry (e.g. electricians and refrigeration technicians)

  • Hands-on facility managers

BMS Training

Although the course is an introduction, it’s a technical introduction and gets pretty full-on at times, we are going to walk through the entire BMS from top to bottom.

From the sensor, connected to a cable, into the controller, the software, up the sub-network, through the network controller, into the Ethernet network and displayed as graphics, alarms and trends. We are going to piece together the whole thing in one session, so have an early night.

This is not a design, project management or risk mitigation session; its the basics. For example, when we discuss networks, we will run through the different components. Network switches (later 2 & 3), gateways, routers, network controllers, fibre optics, Cat6A and RS485 etc., but we are not going to discuss how to design an Ethernet network or the sub-networks.

It was very refreshing to get the perspective of someone with such a wide range of experience across disciplines
— Leo Hernandez, Schneider Electric
Very relevant and informative session, Bryce has great knowledge and developed an interactive session.
— Liam Flanagan, Project Manager, TTT
Found the content to be excellent and very relevant for a mechanical engineer. Good overview without going too deep technically. The take home training material booklet is great to reference back to.
— Chris Lewis, Mechanical Engineer, Allstaff
Overall, I was very impressed. Bryce has an energetic and engaging style and I appreciated how the session adapted to the questions and needs of the attendees. The most valuable aspect of the presentation for me was the historical origins of common issues.
— Tom Rigby, Engineer, FG Advisory
Thanks again for the training, I’ve already started noticing new things on site that I can now put a name and function too.
— Tobias Schmidt, Facility Coordinator, Vantage Property Investments
