ASHRAE is pleased to announce the launch of its first ever Tech Hour video. ASHRAE Tech Hour provides relevant technical content in the form of one-hour videos to members and interested individuals through the ASHRAE 365 app.
"ASHRAE Tech Hour offers easily accessible content to professionals at all levels, presented by some of ASHRAE's brightest minds," said 2019-20 ASHRAE President Darryl K. Boyce, P.Eng. "We are excited to present our first video and anticipate this digital training format will be a welcomed resource for sharing pertinent building-related topics."
