NFRC to offer ACE training following spring meeting

Post Time:Mar 30,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:157

The National Fenestration Rating Council, Greenbelt, Md., will offer a workshop for those seeking certification as an NFRC Approved Calculation Entity (ACE), following its Spring 2010 Membership Meeting. The workshop will be held April 15-16 at the Doubletree Hotel in New Orleans.

In January, NFRC fully launched its Component Modeling Approach (CMA) Product Certification Program. CMA enables whole-product energy performance ratings for commercial fenestration projects using data from the three primary components of fenestration: frames, spacers, and glazing.

The two-day workshop is designed for those seeking certification to become an NFRC ACE. At the end of the workshop, a take-home exam will be provided for attendees to complete and submit after the training. A Certificate of Approval will be sent to those who successfully pass the exam.

NFRC ACEs will be certified to configure whole fenestration products and calculate U-factor, solar heat gain coefficient, and visible transmittance ratings for those products seeking NFRC certification in the CMA Product Certification Program. The workshop will include limited use of the latest version of THERM 6 and use of the Component Modeling Approach Software Tool (CMAST).

The registration deadline for the ACE workshop is Friday, April 2.
