ATTMA Level 1 Blower Door Training Course and Exam

Train and take the exam to become a Registered ATTMA Level 1 Airtightness Tester.

Description

This workshop covers the essentials of the airtightness testing systems and their software. Understanding how to use a Blower Door is only the first step. We will concentrate on troubleshooting and understanding what the system is doing and knowing how to use the software to its maximum potential.

The course is designed to take professionals, who are new to the practice of airtightness testing, and make them competent in basic tests for houses and simple structures. It will also provide in-depth material on the finer techniques of testing for those with prior experience.

This course will provide an understanding of how ATTMA standards, regulatory standards, and project specifications for airtightness are applied in New Zealand and Australia. We will better understand how test results should be represented and compared, and how they relate to physical processes in real buildings.

The course will culminate on the last day in an open-book knowledge and theory exam, as well as an assessment of competency in using a common Blower Door system from either The Energy Conservatory or Retrotec.

ATTMA Level 1 Airtightness Testers are qualified to carry out testing on simple structures up to 4000 m3 requiring only one fan. Common examples include houses, apartments, and single-zone commercial buildings.
