Registration Deadline:   Friday, November 27, 2020 or when full (space is limited and registrations are on a first-come first-served basis).  There is no waiting list for this workshop, but there are two sessions scheduled.


The NFRC Certified Simulator workshop is an in-depth review of the software tools approved by the NFRC that would be required of an individual to provide accurate and fair fenestration product ratings.  The software tools approved by the NFRC are Berkeley Lab WINDOW and THERM and attendees to this workshop are required to have significant experience and knowledge of these systems prior to the workshop.  The training agenda is to review 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 by email prior to the course.

Due to the need to provide this training in a virtual environment, the training will be held via six four-hour webinars spread out over the course of three weeks.  It is important that registrants attend ALL days for their session; missing a class will put the student behind with no ability to catch up prior to testing.

NFRC will be providing two opportunities for the training:

    1. November 4
    2. November 5
    3. November 11
    4. November 12
    5. November 18
    6. November 19
  2. Session 2 – December 2020
    1. December 2
    2. December 3
    3. December 9
    4. December 10
    5. December 15*
    6. December 16

It is required that you understand the relationship between WINDOW and THERM prior to taking this training.

Course cost is $2295.
