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 workforce 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.”
Also, on the schedule is a data center design course that will be presented for the first time. "Data Center and IT Equipment Design Guidance from ASHRAE TC 9.9 for Engineers, IT Professionals and Facility Staff" examines the required operational changes to data centers to achieve the maximum efficiency within the ASHRAE environmental envelopes of relative humidity, temperature and IT equipment power.
In all, four courses will be presented in three European cities.
HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials
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.
HVAC Design: Level II – Applications
This two-day training is tailored for engineers with advanced experience in the HVAC design field, or those who have completed HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials. Like Level I, it is developed and presented by industry-leading professionals. The training provides advanced information that allows practicing engineers and designers an opportunity to expand their exposure to HVAC systems design procedures for a better understanding of system options available today to save energy.
Data Center and IT Equipment Design Guidance from ASHRAE TC 9.9 for Engineers, IT Professional and Facility Staff
This full day course presents the opportunities to save energy in data centers that are based on an understanding of equipment trends, performance measurements, and effectiveness that are critical to the principal objective: Data Integrity. The course is developed and presented by ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9, the source of data center guidelines used throughout Europe.
