24 | August 2022 News & Trends Continued from previous page training manager at National Park Service's Brick Earth Stone and Timber (BEST) Pres- ervation Program, and William Turner, P.E., president emeritus at Turner Building Sci- ence & Design. The webinar will introduce you to the primary physical processes present in all built environments. The core principles–air flow, moisture flow, pressure, and heat–are the foundation for the design, construction, and maintenance of buildings that are du- rable, energy-efficient, comfortable, and healthy for the people in them. Building science drives building code development, building materials selection, building compo- nent placement, and construction practice. Application of building science prevents sys- tem failures, creates healthy IAQ, improves energy-efficiency, and aids in the diagnosis of problems when things go wrong. Continuing education credits are available. For more information, you can call (207) 626- 8115 or email environment cleaning, project management, setting yourself apart in the residential mar- ket, cleaning related to fire and water resto- ration projects, and more. Six (6) continu- ing education credits (CECs) are available, and you can take the training courses for Air Systems Cleaning Specialist (ASCS) and Certified Ventilation Inspector (CVI) certifi- cations and sit for the exams right on-site. NADCA's virtual reality training is back and ready to test your knowledge identifying real-life system components and proper methods for cleaning. And there's an exhibit hall to check out tools and technology. For more information, or to register for the event, go to tech/2022.
