Certified HVAC Designer (CHD) Certification Launches

From eSociety, March 2019

The application for the new Certified HVAC Designer (CHD) certification is now open.  Computer-based testing begins worldwide on June 3.

In the last month alone, over 900 HVAC Designers and employers have downloaded a CHD Candidate Guidebook, which details the CHD examination blueprint and application eligibility requirements.

The CHD certification validates competency of the HVAC Designer, working under the responsible charge of an engineer, to do the following:

Design HVAC systems to meet building/project requirements, including load calculations, equipment selection and sizing, mechanical equipment room design, duct and piping design and layout for the development of HVAC plans for permit and construction.

“Launching a new certification program is a commitment, but we’re confident this is an investment from which ASHRAE members and their employees will benefit,” said Mark Fly, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, chair of the CHD Exam Subcommittee.
