ViewBuilder II

Course Overview

Students will create equipment graphics from a schematic drawing and technician pages. As an example, students will be tasked to create one graphic for different types of similar equipment with the idea of creating a master graphic for all VAVs to shorten engineering time. In addition, students will create a standard template for their company. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to identify, define, and/or apply advanced conditional expressions, WebCTRL paths for system/ equipment linking, and complete customization of equipment graphics, including HTML controls, external links, document links, email links, and custom images and symbols for WebCTRL graphics.

Course Objectives

To create equipment graphics from a schematic drawing as well as technician pages. To understand all the controls, expressions, and links of ViewBuilder.

  • Create advanced equipment and area graphics.
  • Incorporate Add-ons and Custom Reports to graphic files.
  • Utilize custom options such as conditional expressions, layers, local variables, and the advanced library.

Prerequisites

Course Formats

Traditional Classroom

A live instructor will lead up to 12 students (course dependent) in hands-on exercises with minimal lecture in between. Using the situated learning techniques of the Kirkpatrick Model, this methodology fosters a collaborative learning environment where students are positioned to maximize knowledge retention. This course is 2- or 3-day event depending on location.

Instructor-Led eLearning

A live instructor will lead students using video conferencing and remote access software. The student will have remote access to a training station to complete hands-on tasks, giving them a virtual classroom experience from many miles away. This course is hosted in the same 2 or 3-day timeframe and manner as the traditional classroom format.

Video-Led Virtual

The video-led virtual training allows the student to take up to 9 business days to complete the equivalent of a 1-3-day, instructor-led course. Using video tutorials as the instructor, students will execute the workbook tasks and upload assignments using the Automated Logic Training Portal, asking questions through the discussion board where a dedicated instructor will facilitate. This format also offers “instructor hours” where students have live contact with a certified instructor and other registered students.
