BMS Control Systems TheoryProgramming - PT Evening
- Basic computer skills
- Good communication skills.
Who is the course for
To meet the technical skills gap in the BMS sector we have developed this industry controls course in conjunction with Innotech Controls Ltd. There is an increasing requirement for facilities/maintenance technicians, plumbers and electricians to understand these systems as they are likely to come across them during their usual line of work now or in the future. The course will cover many aspects from BMS/HVAC hardware, controls theory fundamentals and hands on applications engineering that can then be applied in industry.
Overview of the HVAC systems Control Basics

Introduction to Direct Digital Control (DDC)
- Introduction to DDC’s what they are and the functions they can perform
- Common terminologies associated with DDC controllers
- Fundamentals of PID Loop control
- Examining the fundamental programming blocks used to create a DDC configuration
- What is a DDC program?
- Understanding of DDC logic and how programs work
- Networking and communication principles.
- Why we create programs
