Online Therm course

How bad are your thermal bridges? Thermal bridges are one of the key ways that buildings lose much more heat than expected.  Understanding them is critical to designing low energy buildings. Learn how to use the (free) software “THERM” with the experts from the AECB CarbonLite team.  The new online Therm course allows people to learn at their own speed and in their own time.

Watch our 2 min promotional video here:

To sample the course you can log in as a guest and use the set up instructions “Setting up THERM for Use in Thermal Bridge Calculations” that will guide you step by step to install Therm on your computer. The initial set up of Therm can be a bit tricky and as part of the course we offer assistance if you get stuck.

The on-line course cost is £200+VAT for one year’s access to the Moodle course and a nominal 2 hours support by email. Contact for more details.
