AIANY Call for Instructors: ECCNYS-2010 Training Course
AIANY is partnering with NYSERDA and Urban Green Council/USGBC to offer four-hour course trainings to familiarize architects and engineers with the 2010 Energy Conservation Construction Code of NY State (ECCCNYS-2010), the fundamentals of low energy design, and the processes available to demonstrate compliance. Instructors are being sought to deliver this course from the pre-prepared PowerPoint. All building types, with the exception of low-rise residential, will be addressed. The course will not follow the ECCCNYS-2010 step-by-step, but will give participants familiarity with the code and the tools needed to demonstrate compliance. The main focus of the curriculum will cover Building Envelope, HVAC, Service Water Heating, Electric Power and Lighting, and Total Building Performance. Instructors must be familiar with all aspects of building systems and with the ECCCNYS-2010. Instructors will be paid at the rate of $750 per session. Reimbursements for out-of-town travel and lodging will be available as needed. Contact Jay Bond, AIANY Policy Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on becoming an instructor.
