HVAC House BCIN Course


Instructor: Jeff Chalmers


The HVAC House BCIN course has been designed to introduce and increase your understanding of the concepts of Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) and to hone skills in terms of their ability to FIND (search the Code and identify non-familiar Code provisions), UNDERSTAND (to comprehend the language, structure and intent of a Code provision), and APPLY the Code provision(s) using case examples, situations and scenarios.


The objective of this course is to help you understand the requirements of the Ontario Building Code (OBC) applicable to the area of HVAC House (primarily dwelling units). This includes requirements contained in Division A and B, particularly Parts 1, 6, 9, 11 and 12 of the code.


This course covers the requirements of the OBC as applied to HVAC House (primarily dwelling units). Requirements for HVAC House in the OBC have been identified to have an impact on the following:

  • Design and Installation
  • Air Ducts
  • Heating and Cooling Systems
  • Heat Transfer, air leakage and condensation
  • Ventilation
  • Heating and Air-conditioning
  • Renovation
  • Electrical
  • Alternative compliance


While this course will emphasize the Ministry of Municipal Affairs exam syllabi for HVAC House, participants must have a basic understanding of the OBC and requirements contained therein in order to be successful when challenging exams.


This course should also assist participants in identifying those areas of the OBC where additional instruction and study may be required in order to be successful in challenging the Ministry of Municipal Affairs Examinations.


Participants will need their own copy of the two-volume Ontario Building Code-2012. You can buy the code book HERE  – 2012 Building Code Compendium (2 Volume Binder Set)  ISBN-978-1-4606-2444-9 


The HVAC House BCIN course fee includes a copy of the OBOA workbook ($125 value)
