Knowing how a structure functions, and your role in maintaining it effectively, you are involved in the repair and replacement of structural items such as floors, ceilings, interior walls, and windows, and you need a basic understanding of building design, materials, codes, regulations, and structural systems and finishes. You also need to be familiar with maintenance procedures and equipment, grounds maintenance, and preventive maintenance, as well as construction documents. In this course, you will cover the characteristics, uses, and properties of common building materials, as well as building regulations, codes, and standards.
You will learn to compare building system components and to identify appropriate inspection and maintenance techniques. You will develop the knowledge to establish procedures and standards for monitoring building operations, preventive maintenance, and cleaning.
