BAS University (BASU) is the training arm for Automated Logic, offering hands-on, task-based learning opportunities for both owner/operator and field office personnel alike. Choose from:
The Owner/Operator certification track is for customers who would like to learn how to use the capabilities and features of the WebCTRL® system to effectively manage and maintain their facility, regardless of industry type or size. All courses are available a la carte (note, some do require prerequisites), but the most balanced, comprehensive training will come by following the certification track that most closely resembles your job description.
The Owner/Operator Associate certification pro-gram is designed for owner/operators who are new to a WebCTRL system. Participants will be able to connect to a live WebCTRL system to interact, setup, and maintain their building, and walk away with an understanding of schedules, trends, alarms, and other fundamental WebCTRL features to maximize their building automation purchase.
The Owner/Operator Practitioner certification program is designed for owner/operators who want more than the basic, working knowledge of a WebCTRL system and would like to learn about its progressive features, such as advanced reporting, advanced security, alarm ac-tions, and WebCTRL add-ons. Upon completion of courses in this certification track, students will be able to diagnose and troubleshoot their WebCTRL system using WebCTRL alarms, trends, reports, and live logic pages.
The Owner/Operator Master certification program is designed for owner/operators who want more than the intermediate, working knowledge of a WebCTRL system and would like to enhance their skills with the entire WebCTRL application suite including the EIKON® tool, SiteBuilder and ViewBuilder. Certified Owner/Operator Masters will know how to add new or edit existing equipment and areas to their system while creating custom programs and graphics. Net-working standards, as well as how to troubleshoot advanced networking issues on their WebCTRL system are also included.
The Field Technician certification track is for field office personnel, whether from an independent dealership or an Automated Logic branch, seeking skills to better prepare them for obstacles they may face in the field. Courses in this certification track will prepare field technicians and field engineers to confidently install, commission, troubleshoot, and edit WebCTRL systems so that contracts are more likely completed on time, on budget, and with a satisfied customer.
The Field Technician Associate certification track is designed for field technicians who are new to a WebCTRL system and HVAC. When certified, a Certified Field Technician Associate will be able to diagnose, troubleshoot, and edit issues with pro-gramming, graphics, networks, and system archi-tecture. Topics covered include all applications that make up a WebCTRL system.
The Field Technician Practitioner certification track is designed for field technicians who require the skills to create custom programming and graphics, add complete mechanical systems to the WebCTRL system, and troubleshoot common networking issues using sniffer tools such as Wireshark®. Many advanced theories, tips, and strategies are discussed in these courses, including WebCTRL add-ons, WebCTRL security, and da-tabase integrity. Along with commissioning, trouble-shooting, and fine-tuning a WebCTRL system, a Certified Field Technician Practitioner will be proficient with the integration of BACnet, Modbus®, N2, and LON devices.
The Field Technician Master certification track is designed for field technicians who need to under-stand the most complex features, options, and theories associated with the Automated Logic product or systems required to use the Automated Logic product. Topics included are advanced programming and graphics, design engineering, complex networks, robust databases, and custom add-ons for a WebCTRL system. Special guest speakers and subject matter experts will appear in many of these classes.
The Design Engineer certification track produces a design engineer with the proactive skills to foresee poten-tial issues prior to turning a project over to the field technician. Sometimes known as “cradle to grave” engineering, a design engineer may see a project from creation, requested changes, and final as-builts throughout the entire lifespan of the contract. With emphasis on building a solid foundation with standards, design engineers can work together with field technicians to ultimately deliver a quality product within a scheduled timeframe and projected budget.
The Design Engineer Associate certification track was developed for design engineers who are new to a WebCTRL system and HVAC. The Certified Design Engineer Associate will be able to design basic IP and ARC156 networks utilizing standards that allow for future growth. Engineers will create complete system databases with SiteBuilder while producing programs and graphics for areas and equipment. Utilizing Automated Logic’s Engineering Design Suite, associates will become fluent in selecting hardware, standard naming and numbering structure, and creating control drawings.
The Design Engineer Practitioner certification track is designed for design engineers who require the skills to create custom programming and graphics, design complex WebCTRL systems, and create control drawings. Many advanced theories, tips, and strategies are discussed in these courses, including WebCTRL add-ons, WebCTRL security, and database integrity. Other topics included are common networking issues, SQL data-bases, and deciphering Wireshark. Certified Design Engineer Practitioners will also gain the knowledge of customizing the Engineering Design Suite using the Administration tool.
The Design Engineer Master certification track is the final path for design engineers. Topics included are advanced programming and graphics, design engineering, robust databases, third party integration, and cost saving strategies. No feature, option, or theory is off limits at this point. Special guest speakers and subject matter experts will likely make an appearance in these classes.
Classroom In-house - whether you visit BASU-WHQ in Kennesaw, GA, or visit another of our Gold Partners in Training locations, a live instructor will lead up to 12 students (course dependent) in task-based, hands-on exercises with minimal lecture in between. Using the situated learning techniques of the Kirkpatrick Model, BASU Factory and Factory Certified Gold Partners in Training instructors behave as a “guide by your side” vs. a “sage on the stage.” This methodology fosters a collaborative learning environment where learners are not only successful in the classroom, but are positioned to maximize knowledge retention.
Classroom On-site - exactly the same setup as the classroom in-house training, this option brings the classroom to you. Please see the On-site Training section of this catalog for pricing and details.
One-on-one Coaching- courses taught in this manner pair one student with one Factory or Factory Certified Gold Partners in Training instructor using remote access software. This connection allows the learner to take control of the instructor’s workstation from the convenience of their home or office, giving them an individualized virtual classroom experience from many miles or time zones away.
Self-pace video tutorials - another distance learning option for some courses, the self-paced video tutorials allow the learner to watch and rewatch videos at their own pace. This option is a good option for those who would like a refresher on what they’ve learned elsewhere, or as a prerequisite to another course. Not recommended as the only means of learning something new.
Virtual Classroom - another distance learning option for some courses, the virtual classroom allows the learner to take up to 14 days to complete the instructor-led classroom equivalent of a 1-3 day course. Using video tutorials as the on-demand instructor, learners will execute the workbook tasks and upload assignments using the BASU LMS, asking questions through the discus-sion board where a dedicated Factory or Factory Certified instructor will facilitate.
