Bristol is an accredited trainer for NABCEP certification and teaches college courses in solar thermal. See a summary of his articles at

Plumbers, Architects, General Contractors, Engineers, Designers, other building professionals and end-users are encouraged to attend.

This class is for design and installation of solar thermal hot water and space heating systems. Learn how to integrate solar thermal heating for domestic hot water and space heating.

Attend this seminar to Learn about;
SLASH-D: a free web-based design tool that will have you designing a complete solar thermal combi-system in 15 minutes.

SLIC: a solar logic integrated control that operates an entire heating system (renewable energy plus backup). You can monitor and control the system from your office. The client receives a simple thermostat and remote access.

Installers are required to attend a training in order to install a SLIC.

This one day 7-hour class teaches solar thermal design principles and installation techniques for domestic hot water and solar combi-systems in new and retrofit applications. Special emphasis is placed on control system technology for integrating renewable energy, conventional heat sources and all loads with the benefits of remote monitoring, control, diagnosis and reporting.
