The greatest challenge facing engineering firms and building owners is maintaining a workforce that understands the fundamentals of HVAC design and is current with the application of new technologies.
To address this need, ASHRAE will present the HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials training in Madrid, Spain. Organized by the ASHRAE Spain Chapter, this three-day course will take place 8-10 May 2019. The course speeds the transition of recent university graduates to effective practitioners who can meet real-world design challenges and acquaints experienced engineers with technologies to minimize energy consumption, meet current standards, and improve building occupant comfort.
While the fundamentals of good design practices are universal, the training has been adapted to meet the specific needs of European designers, whether they practice only in Europe or in areas where US standards are also applied.
