BACnet Academy Intensive Two Day Training

Target group
BACnet Academy intensive two day training is aimed at developers and product managers, project engineers and planners, consultants and integrators as well as all who run and operate building automation.

Each participant will learn the basic technical knowledge of BACnet for interoperable building automation with the worldwide standard EN ISO 16484-5. This way he will learn how to evaluate the BA network techniques and how simple the specifications of interoperability areas are. Participants will get an introduction to the BACnet standard with practical exercises and enough time to get deeper into their specific problems.
