The CIBSE Online learning units are a series of training modules aimed at bringing practical engineering based skills to you. The training covers a range of essential skills and practical topics presented in an interactive, flexible format making it easy to learn and refresh skills.
Each module provides a thorough understanding of a subject with 7 hours of structured learning and a bank of material available for further reading. The supporting interactive elements will help to guide you through the subject matter and ensure you finish the module with an excellent grasp of the topic. End of module quizzes will help you evaluate your learning.
Once you register for a online learning course you will be sent a user name and password to access the online materials. You can log in and out as you wish, the system will remember where you left off. On completion of the unit you will be able to download a CPD certificate of completion of the course.
The online learning units have also been built to make it easy for companies to register a number of students and monitor their progress. Administrators can download reports showing students progress and test results. To find out more or discuss a groups' needs please contact the event's team on 020 8772 3660 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The development of these units has been kindly supported by:
AECOM , Arup, Hoare Lea, Crown House, Laing O'Rourke & NG Bailey.
CIBSE Online Learning will provide a cost effective, flexible way of getting up to speed on a range of topics that you can fit in around your job at a time that suits you.

Commissioning is “the advancement of a system from the state of static completion to full working order to the specified requirements”.
In other words, commissioning encompasses the activities that take place after a system has been installed to ensure that it will perform as intended by the designer during normal operation.
This module provides an explanation of the main activities involved in the commissioning of air and water circulation systems.
The aim of this module is to introduce the role of the modern building services engineer; why we need building services - what are they, what they look like and what they do. It covers areas of mechanical services such as heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and their control. On the electrical side, it covers, for example, three-phase supplies and its distribution, electric shock prevention, earthing and uninterruptable power supplies.
The aim of the module is to prepare engineers for the process of designing a complete pipe-work system for delivering heating or chilled water to terminal units in buildings. These types of system typically distribute heating or cooling water to radiators, fan coil units, chilled beams, radiant panels or chilled ceilings.
The module is designed for non-electrical Building Services engineers who now find that they have an increasing need to be able to design electrical distribution schemes, or for those with a more traditional electrical background who wish to apply their knowledge practically to the design of electrical distribution within buildings.
The module covers both the principles and practices of electrical power distribution from the optimum siting of the main electrical intake position through to the choice of power distribution systems and their containment. together with an introduction to the use of essential and non-essential supplies and the possible choices for standby electrical supplies.
Who should study this unit?
The module is primarily intended for junior to intermediate engineers who are being asked to design a heating system for the first time. However, the module is not for the complete beginner. There's an assumption from the outset that the user will have completed a college or university course on mechanical engineering, or possibly a course on building services engineering, and so will have some understanding of the basic fluid dynamic principles that underlie system design. They will also have access to the support of a more senior engineer within their organisation who can guide them on the procedures and protocols for completing design drawings and specification documents.
The aim of this module is to give engineers/project managers with little or no lighting design experience a better understanding of, and become confident in, the use of design methods for indoor lighting applications. Also to gain knowledge of the standards and guides used in lighting design and to better understand the Lighting designer/lighting specialist's offered solution.
The module contains not only sections on design, but also complimentary sections on lighting control systems as well as information and instruction with regard to lamp technologies.
The objective of this module is to enable informed choices of luminaires, lamps, lighting controls and designs in accordance with the needs of the end users.
This module guides you through the main ventilation technologies available. It looks at how they function and how they compare with one another. It will enable you to report on alternative ventilation strategies for a given brief, and help clients to make informed decisions about what method of ventilation they should adopt, the type of controls to be used, and decisions about access requirements.
The module makes full use of current design guides and codes of practice, as well as the necessary design calculations. This will in turn help you to make informed choices that are based on sound economic and engineering principles.
The CIBSE Design of Air Conditioning Systems module has been developed as an introductory module for building services engineers/project managers with little or no air conditioning design experience.
Key parts of the module are:
(i) This module aims to introduce the design of air-conditioning systems - being a process by which air is a space is modified to make if comfortable for the occupants.
(ii) Many spaces require ventilation and details of the necessary techniques and calculations can be found in the CIBSE module 'Ventilation Design'. However, some areas also require the additional use of air-conditioning systems.
Such spaces are typically those: subject to high solar gains, with high equipment densities or rooms which need close environmental control. And although this module does not go into detail designs for all types of system or applications, it does provide the basic information required for Air-Conditioning design and system selection.
The module is aimed at practicing electrical engineers with some experience of designing distribution and final circuit layouts and who now wish to study the cable sizing process.
Just as cabling is to an electrical system or pipework to a heating system, so ductwork is an essential component of most mechanical ventilation and air conditioning systems. The CIBSE Air Distribution Module therefore takes you through (with design examples), the theory and practice of ductwork design to ensure the minimum of material use and the most economical friction loss.
This module aims to provide an excellent introduction to both 11kV and 33kV systems and takes you through:
To enable you to design safe, but practical networks at these voltages.
