Course Description

These courses will not only increase your HVAC knowledge, but it will also accelerate the rate at which you will increase your knowledge in the future.

ASHRAE Global Training Center offers its first HVAC Design Web-Training Series (MENA) over a period of 3 weeks. The HVAC Design Web-Training Series comprises of two HVAC Design courses; HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials and HVAC Design: Level II – Applications.

Achieving energy-efficient building performance that provides cooling comfort for occupants and meets the needs of building owners begins with system design.  If the design is flawed, performance will suffer, and owner objectives will not be satisfied.

ASHRAE offers a solution to improve design practices. Whether a designer, or facility manager, a recent graduate or an experienced professional who has taken on new design responsibilities, it is critical to combine the basic understanding of current standards with the application of new technologies to achieve success. Without a basic understanding of how systems perform in real-world environments and knowledge of which design option are available, engineers are ill equipped to meet with the ever-increasing challenges of their positions.
