TAB Control Systems Verification

The TAB Control Systems Verification course is a blended learning experience that combines traditional classroom instruction with practical training and problem-solving challenges. Classroom instruction is an essential component of the course as it provides the foundational knowledge of control theory, networking, programming, sensor types, control devices, calibration, sequence verification, safety devices, and circuits. Practical training, aided by custom workstations emulating an HVAC system, reinforces students’ foundational knowledge. Problem-solving challenges, during the practical exercises and assigned in the daily homework, help students develop critical thinking and analytical skills which are essential for a TAB professional’s success. The goal of the TAB Control Systems Verification course is to provide students with practical skills that make them job-ready to conduct control systems verification requirements of Total System Balancing of basic HVAC systems found in commercial and institutional buildings.
