HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials (MENA) HVAC Design: Level II – Applications (MENA)

"The Level II training employed practical examples that helped to elaborate the previous material that was taught in Level I."

“Training was helpful in enhancing my knowledge and insights on ASHRAE standard 55, 62.1 and 90.1.”

“Although it’s an advanced course, the instructors succeeded to deliver it in the best possible way for non-HVAC engineers.”

Course Description

HVAC Design Web-Training Series (MENA)

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.

    Certification

    Attending the HVAC Design Courses Levels I and II provides you with guidance for implementing HVAC design best practices, including guidance on a number of the job tasks tested on the CHD certification exam. While the HVAC Design courses do not “teach to the exam,” they do help improve your understanding of the body of knowledge which the CHD exam tests. It is important to be aware that attending the courses is not required to sit for the CHD exam, nor does attendance guarantee a passing score.


    The CHD certification, managed under ISO/IEC 17024 requirements for ANSI-Accredited Personnel Certification Programs, validates competency to design HVAC systems to meet building/project requirements, including equipment, equipment sizing, load calculations, mechanical equipment room design, duct and piping design and layout, and develop HVAC plans for permit and construction.

    Once you register to the Combo (HVAC Design Level I and II) or HVAC Design Level II only, a 20% discount code will be sent to you by email. The discount code will be valid for 12 weeks after the completion of HVAC Design Level II training.
