PHCPPros is excited to kick off our new virtual education series this April! These premium, in-depth courses will be led by top industry experts, and attendees will be able to earn education credits through various organizations.
Our first course, "Heat Pump System (ASHP & GSHP) + Hybrid Design Overview Part 1" will be held live on April 12 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. CDT. Attendees will be able to earn 2.0 LU | HSWs through the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and 0.2 CEUs through the International Code Council (ICC).
Instructors Jay Egg, CMC, and Kristy Egg BSPH, RN, will introduce students to electric heat pump operation for the heating and cooling of buildings. This course will increase the capacity of participants to competently integrate air source and ground source heat pumps into buildings. In certain situations, buildings may have already existing combustion heating systems that may be left in place to handle peak heating needs. Additionally, hybrid air source, ground source and fossil fuel systems may have a place in the phased conversion of buildings.
Learning objectives of the course include understanding the context and content of heat pumps, identifying useful principles for operation and decarbonization, understanding existing barriers to geothermal adoption and how to manage them, learning about carbon emission reduction goals, and comparing carbon emissions of combustion heating systems and electric heat pumps.
Jay Egg, Egg Geo, LLC, is a geothermal HVAC consultant, author and speaker. After serving in the U.S. Navy nuclear power field, he began a career in mechanical design engineering and contracting. Now, as an expert consultant, Jay sits on several technical code committees internationally, and is currently engaged as a member of the Legionella Task Group for the 2024 IAPMO Uniform Mechanical Code. He has co-authored two McGraw-Hill textbooks focused on geothermal HVAC technologies, and he continues to write curriculum and lecture on the merits of clean heating and cooling technologies.
Kristy Egg is a registered nurse, public health and epidemiology professional with a keen interest in environmental, community and public health programs. Over the past decade she has studied and developed a definite interest, bordering on obsession, in Legionella outbreaks in cooling towers. She now assists with water management programs, and she is quickly becoming a respected resource on Legionella-associated biofilms. This has led her to pursue additional education, certification and teaching in the public health and epidemiological arena.
Attendees can register for the two-hour course at bit.ly/2OSJhSF. The price to attend is $89.
Those who sign up for the April 12 course will be emailed a promo code to attend the second part of the series, "Heat Pump System (ASHP & GSHP) + Hybrid Design Overview Part 2," which is scheduled for May 24 at 11 a.m. CDT. The price to attend both parts is $140.
