PPGS 1210 – Introduction to Mechanical Insulation
Mechanical Insulation Inspectors Course is now available.
The establishment of a quality assurance certification (QAC) program in BC’s mechanical insulation industry has received increased attention over the last several years. This has been fuelled by three primary issues: 1) contractors minimizing or in some cases totally eliminating insulation where it is required; 2) the use of non-certified materials; and 3) improper installation practices. This course introduces students to the BC Insulation Contractors Association (BCICA) quality assurance certification (QAC) program. Topics include an introduction to the QAC program; insulation materials; construction safety; technical specifications; blueprint and detail drawings; and, an introduction to the inspection and certification process.
