“In my field, ASHRAE certifications are widely recognized. When writing emails, I know the BEAP and BEMP designations after my name show my competence. An ASHRAE certification helps employers and clients know they are getting the right person to work on projects.”

“As a YEA (Young Engineers in ASHRAE) member, it was challenging to distinguish myself among the crowd of my industry peers. ASHRAE Certification has allowed me to market myself, identifying a level of competency and knowledge in my field. I’m a true believer that ASHRAE has helped me in my pursuit of excellence through their certification program.”

“It’s beginning to be an ever more changing global economy and your competition is no longer down the street or across town, so getting a certification is very valuable in the sense that you’re bringing yourself to the top of the pack. The HFDP behind my name gets on my business card and gets on every email I send, so as soon as someone receives a contact from me they can see my experience and they can see that it’s been validated by ASHRAE.”

"I can say that I belong to the 94% who are proud to hold an ASHRAE certification and to the 89% who believe that it validates their level of specialized knowledge and ability. But also for me one of the main values of an ASHRAE certification is that ASHRAE is a global organization and one of the finest in the HVAC industry, and if you are looking for some kind of international validation of your knowledge, skills and abilities, I am sure that you will not find a better certification."
