In-depth Training: ASHRAE Guidance Blended with European Practice

ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI) has released its schedule of instructor-led training in Europe, including its HVAC Design Level I and Level II courses.

“The greatest challenge facing engineering firms and building owners is maintaining a work force that understands the fundamentals of HVAC design and that is current with the application of new technologies,” said Stephen Comstock, ASHRAE’s manager of business development EMEA. “ASHRAE’s HVAC design courses provide practical design knowledge to young engineers, to engineers who have transitioned to positions and to experienced engineers who would benefit from an understanding of how new technologies rest on traditional design fundamentals.”

This three-day training provides an understanding of the fundamentals of HVAC design and knowledge that can be put to immediate use. The course speeds the transition of recent university graduates to effective practitioners that are able to meet real-world design challenges and acquaints experienced engineers with technologies to minimize energy consumption, meet current standards and improve building occupant comfort.

Course Topics:  Load calculations, psychometrics, system selection, design process, air systems, hydronic systems, HVAC equipment, HVAC systems, Codes and Standards, BAS controls, commissioning, project management.

Course Objectives:

  • Discover how to calculate heating and cooling loads
  • Learn the basics of psychrometrics
  • Evaluate building automation systems and controls
  • Understand hydronic design & air system design
  • Select HVAC equipment & systems
  • Describe standard practices & design processes
  • Explain the differences & advantages of systems for specific applications

Who Should Attend:

  • Engineers who are recent university graduates
  • Engineers assigned new design responsibilities
  • Engineers who want to ensure they are up to date
  • Architects who want an understanding of HVAC design
  • Facilities managers involved in new construction or major renovation projects
  • Suppliers and sales engineers who need to assist clients with design challenges
  • Technicians who would like to gain thorough design knowledge to advance their careers
  • Construction project managers involved with mechanical systems

Content Bonus: Suppliers’ views on VRF design considerations and BAS integration and building protocols
