New Course Aimed to Help Consulting Engineers

From eSociety, March 2018

A new ASHRAE Learning Institute course is designed to address the needs of consulting engineers.

The course, “Consulting Engineering Essentials,” provides an overview of ownership responsibilities and offers insights to help develop project engineers into well-rounded consulting engineers. Course registrants will learn how to: work collaboratively with people at every level; apply skills such as verbal communication and appropriate goal-setting to incorporate techniques to prioritize problems; delegate tasks; organize large teams; and coordinate complex processes.

“Young engineers and engineers new to the industry need more than the proper educational background and relevant technical experience to thrive in the profession,” said course instructor Dennis Wessel, P.E., Fellow/Life Member ASHRAE. “Business skills such as project management, marketing, techniques to acquire new projects and client management are crucial for long term success. This course presents these skills in a practical format.”

The course is scheduled for March 29 in New Orleans. Register.

“Consulting Engineering Essentials” is one part of four intensive HVAC Design and Operations training sessions offered by ALI. Other sessions are HVAC Design: Level I—Essentials; HVAC Design Level II—Applications and Improving Existing Building Operation.
