Approximately 50 Bay Area SMACNA contractors learned about key SMACNA standards and the latest technical apps during SMACNA’s recent Technical University at the Bay Area Training Center in Oakland, Calif.
Participants studied HVAC and industrial applications including duct construction, duct leakage testing, and fire dampers. The two-day program was led by SMACNA’s Technical Resources staff.
Using hands-on challenges and techniques covered in class, participants in teams built solutions from duct models. They investigated in-depth issues facing the sheet metal industry and learned how the standards can be applied to address those issues.
