|Module 1||Introduction to Understanding Combustion Safety and Testing|
This module contains course materials and required reading. It explains the role of the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Rater in combustion safety testing.
|Unit 1||Combustion Safety and Testing Introduction and Course Materials|
|Module 2||The Combustion Cycle|
To understand combustion safety, you first need to understand the dangers presented by having combustion appliances sharing our living and breathing spaces. This module explains the combustion cycle and how potentially deadly gasses are formed and introduced to our breathing air.
|Unit 1||The Combustion Cycle|
|Unit 2||The Combustion Cycle Quiz|
|Module 3||The Combustion Appliance Zone (CAZ)|
What is a CAZ? How do you recognize the CAZ and what are the potential issues with its size and location? This module explains these as well as what to look for and why when performing an inspection of the CAZ area(s).
|Unit 1||The Combustion Appliance Zone|
|Unit 2||The Combustion Appliance Zone Quiz|
|Module 4||Personal Safety and Combustion Testing Tools|
When working with and around combustion appliances, you may be placing yourself and anyone else in the vicinity in danger - or you may be discovering dangerous conditions. This module discusses how to keep yourself and everyone else in the structure safe and reviews the national standards as well as the tools used in testing, verification, and safety monitoring.
|Unit 1||Personal Safety and Combustion Testing Tools|
|Unit 2||Personal Safety and Combustion Testing Tools Quiz|
|Unit 3||CO Monitoring|
|Unit 4||CO Monitoring Quiz|
|Module 5||Combustion Appliance Testing|
The rubber meets the road in this module. You will learn how to test the CAZ and its appliances and the standards followed for testing and reacting to test results. You will understand why the tests are performed and what situations might lead to various potential issues you might uncover so you have knowledge of what recommendations or requirements to make based on your test results.

|Module 6||Combustion Appliances Outside of the CAZ|
Other combustion appliances exist that are not in a specifically designed equipment room. This module will cover those other potentially deadly combustion appliances that may be found in a home and the type of inspections and testing that may be performed to ensure they are operating in a healthy and safe manner.
|Unit 1||Testing Other Combustion Appliances|
|Unit 2||Testing Combustion Appliances Quiz|
|Module 7||The Combustion Testing Process|
Now that you have learned about various tests, procedures, and appliances one-by-one, how do you fit them all together into a testing method you can use in the field? This module puts the entire combustion testing process together in one fluid step-by-step process.
|Unit 1||Putting it all Together - Combustion Appliance Inspections and Testing|
|Module 8||The Scope of Work|
The tests and inspections are complete. Now it is time to make specific recommendations and work scopes. This module takes you through the scope of work and the standards and expectations around a work scope generated for any health, safety, building durability, and energy efficiency modifications to a residence.
|Unit 1||Work Scope Generation Course Materials|
|Unit 2||Biddable Scope of Work|
|Unit 3||The Test Out|
|Unit 4||Work Scope Generation Quiz|
