Objectifs du programme

The Building Systems Technology program trains technicians to ensure the proper functioning of building systems and to manage the related energy costs. Building systems technicians work on plumbing, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and fire protection systems, some of which are equipped with electrical controls and automatic control circuits.

Durée de la formation

La durée totale inclut des cours de formation générale commune à tous les programmes pour 420 heures, des cours de formation générale propre à ce programme pour 150 heures ainsi que des cours de formation générale complémentaire pour 90 heures.

Les durées correspondent à la formation théorique et au travail de laboratoire des cours; elles excluent donc les heures de travail personnel de l'étudiante ou de l'étudiant.
