This course has given me so many resources to use and build my knowledge upon. I would recommend anyone that has anything to do with designing or working on hydronic systems to consider this course.

Matthew Brewington
Hydronic Specialist, Behler-Young

My takeaways from this course were monumental. I am a retired Chemical Engineer who has been away from the "tools" for some time. John resurrected skills and knowledge from my past and made the entire course understandable from beginning to end. In particular, the companionship of John's lectures and his text, along with many specific design procedures, tips and tricks, and design tools will be indispensable as I continue designing my systems. Thanks John for a great experience.

Very good course, a lot of reading and content. Definitely will make you feel better about hydronics than you would previous to the course.
