  • Level I

    HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials

    ASHRAE’s HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials training provides participants with instruction that accelerates their transformation into effective members of a design, construction or facilities maintenance team. Developed by industry-leading professionals selected by ASHRAE, the training provides attendees with the fundamentals and technical aspects of HVAC design. Attendees will gain practical skills and knowledge to design and maintain HVAC systems that can be put to immediate use.

    In addition to gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding, attendees will receive real-world examples of HVAC systems based on the renovated ASHRAE Headquarters building. The training also teaches a systematic approach to guide a design team to a solution that optimally meets the client’s expectations. Engineered drawings of the ASHRAE Headquarters renovation will also be discussed so participants are exposed to plan reading and visual understanding of system design.


    Who Should Attend

    • Engineers new to the HVAC industry, including recent engineering graduates lacking practical experience
    • Facilities managers involved in new construction or major renovation projects
    • Technicians who would like to gain design knowledge
    • Architects who want to understand HVAC system design
    • Sales engineers and HVAC equipment suppliers who want to gain a broad knowledge of HVAC systems

    How Your Firm Will Benefit

    The training helps attendees understand:

    • The need to improve overall building performance
    • The technologies that lead to improved building performance
    • The economics of sustainable buildings and the roles of the designer and facilities manager
    • The basic skills needed to design high-performance buildings
    • The skill set that will be required by designers of the future
    • Techniques to interact effectively with all design partners (architects, owners, other engineering disciplines) in an integrated design team
    • The capacity to participate in the design of high-performance buildings
