ASHRAE certifications are recognized by more than 35 national, state and local government bodies.

To earn an ASHRAE certification, applicants must submit a completed application documenting education and work experience eligibility criteria and then– if approved to sit for the exam–pass an examination. Certification exams are only given in English, but non-native English speakers can receive an additional 30 minutes of testing time to ensure they are afforded enough time to demonstrate competency.
