Getting ready to tackle the Building Systems Exam?  Been a while since you've studied mechanical and electrical systems?  No worries!  These seminars and workshops will have you thinking like an engineer in no time...

Part One: The Seminars


Our multiple choice content seminar series will review the evaluation, selection, & integration of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in building design and construction.


Presented by experienced professional engineers, the seminar will be an effective part of a candidate’s preparation for this challenging division of the ARE.


Part Two: The Graphic Vignette Workshop


- Hands-on Software Experience

- Practice Examples

- Vignette Discussion

- Peer Review


This graphic vignette workshop, led by a peer instructor, will allow attendees to become familiar with the software in preparation for the Exam.
