Expert Course

The Expert courses on energy simulation and building performance analysis will be taught in Vietnamese or English on a period of 2-3 weeks. Target learners are architects, engineers … who have completed the Fundamental course or have had experience on simulating actual projects before.

On this course, learners study together on the weekends (2-3 weekens) to practice an energy simulation and building performance analysis for a real project. These projects will be changed by each courses so as not to make learners feel bored. During the lessons, learners will practice the software with experts of Designbuilder Viet Nam through exercises for these training content includes:

  • Module 1 (Day 1): Modeling
  • Module 2 (Day 2): Setting up building materials & equipment
  • Module 3 (Day 3): Calculating and simulating energy (fundamental module)
  • Module 4 (Day 4): Analyzing Passive Design
  • Module 5 (Day 5): Simulating HVAC & ventilation system (detail module)

Each module (corresponding to one day), learners will have 120 minutes to self practice in groups of 2-3 people, which helps learners review the previous learned knowledge and skills as well as experience more from other members of the group. In addition, Designbuilder Viet Nam lecturers will always support if the learners have any difficulty.

To be more flexible, the Expert course is divided into 3 different levels for 3 types of learners: architects, engineers and simulation experts. Learners can enroll at the appropriate level and will receive the corresponding certificate.

  • For architects: complete module 1, 2, 3, 4
  • For engineers: complete module 1, 2, 3, 5
  • For simulation experts: all module

In case of personal reasons that learners can not complete all modules to be certified, Designbuilder Vietnam allows them to reserve the results of the completed module within 3 months from the time of these module completed. After 3 months, if learners can not complete the remaining modules, they have to relearn the course from the beginning and pay the same fee as new students.

After this course, learners will be able to carry out the building performancesimulation and analysis by themselves on their actual projects. In addition, learners also receive:

  • Certification for course completion
  • Accumulated score from the Green Building Council of Vietnam (VGBC) for students who have been certified LOTUS AP
  • Discount fee for Advanced courses organized by DBVN
