By registering for this workshop, you will also be required to attend a separate Webinar regarding the Component Modeling Approach (CMA) Program.  This program was implemented for certifying commercial products on January 1, 2010, and requires training of THERM6 and CMAST (CMA Software Tool) so simulators know how to enter frame and spacer components into the CMAST libraries.  The webinar will be schedule after the take-home exams from all participants have been received.

This workshop is an intensive week of training and requires knowledge of WINDOW & THERM.  It is highly recommended you understand the relationship between WINDOW & THERM. The training is an in-depth review of these programs by solving interactive problems, as well as a review of the NFRC accredited laboratory and certified simulator requirements.  Training materials will be provided on a USB drive at the workshop.
