Upcoming Training Event 2015


Are you a commercial assessor, either level 3 or 4, interested in a practical (not just an SBEM entry job) Non Domestic Masterclass? If so, MEP is setting up a course with NES/MHER which should be just what you need.
This is a full day, classroom-based course run by NES/NHER trainer Juan Garcia, but with a very practical focus, and potentially worth 6 hours CPD.
The course will cover the following items which, where possible, will be supported with practical examples and case studies:
· Providing environmental comfort, basic theory of heating and cooling systems
· Heating system basics: boilers, direct heaters, electric systems and heat pumps
· Mechanical ventilation systems
· Cooling systems: CAV, VAV, Chilled Beams, Fan Coils and Heat Pumps
· SBEM HVAC data entry
· Assessing and improving SBEM outputs from an HVAC perspective
· The Non Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide 2014 (NDBSCG 2014)

There is a reduced Early Booking Fee of just £75 for this course – which is half the normal cost.
The early booking fee will be available to members until 18 September – so make sure you book early for a bargain!

Both the Early and Standard booking fees (shown below) include all course costs and materials and tea and coffee throughout the day, but lunch, which is available off the menu at the venue, the Black Horse, is not included in the course fee. The Black Horse will provide us with menus and all orders they receive by 11am will be available at lunchtime.

Breakfast : The Black Horse opens at 8am, so rather than fighting the traffic on the Bristol Road during rush hour, delegates may prefer to arrive early and sample the breakfast fare that the Black Horse has to offer.

MEP Booking Terms
MEP Booking Terms
Booking. A place on the course cannot be confirmed until the fee has been paid in full to The Association of Midlands Energy Professionals. The Early Booking Fee expires at midnight on 18 September 2015, and payments received into the MEP bank account after that time will not qualify for the discount.
Liability. This course is organised by The Association of Midlands Energy Professionals, but training and facilities are provided by third parties, to whom we are liable for the costs incurred, and any claims with regard to the training or the venue should be addressed to those third parties.
Cancellation by Delegates. MEP is not a commercial organisation, we do not run paid-for training of this sort on a regular basis, and we price it so as not to make a profit from it, as far as possible. Therefore if we incur losses as a result of cancellations by delegates, those losses could only be recovered from the annual subscriptions of members, many of whom may not have been involved in the course, which would be unfair to them. We must therefore ask delegates to regard course fees as non-refundable. If very exceptional circumstances apply then it will be a matter for the committee of MEP to determine whether a refund should be given, taking into account all the material facts. No refund can be considered, whatever the circumstances, if cancellation is notified to MEP 21 days or less prior to the start of the course.
Course Cancellation. Cancellation of the course by a supplier would be through circumstances beyond our control, and we would expect to be offered an alternative date for our members at the earliest possible moment. If the course was cancelled by MEP due to failure to attract sufficient delegates course fees would be refunded in full.
