ASHRAE Offers 14 Spring Online Courses

 
ASHRAE Offers 14 Spring Online Courses

For those interested in expanding their knowledge of the HVAC industry and keeping up to date with the latest technology and its applications, ASHRAE will be offering 14 online, instructor-led seminars, including one on the requirements of the new green building standard.

ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, is the first code-intended commercial green building standard in the United States. Covering such key topic areas as site sustainability, water use efficiency, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and the building’s impact on the atmosphere, materials, and resources, the standard provides a long-needed green building foundation for those who strive to design, build, and operate green buildings.

The standard also includes construction practices and plans for operation of the building after occupancy.

ASHRAE’s course on the requirements of the standard, Understanding Standard 189.1P for High-Performance, Green Buildings, takes place March 15. It will be taught by Tom Lawrence, a member of the committee that developed the standard.

“The course has evolved as the standard has taken shape, and I anticipate that the course will continue to evolve as changes and addenda are approved, resulting from changes in concepts, technologies, and design for green buildings,” says Lawrence. “Standard 189.1 has the potential to be a ‘game changer’ in the industry, and thus, anyone who is working with green design would benefit from learning more about the standard.”

Understanding Standard 189.1P for High-Performance, Green Buildings is one of 14 courses being offered by ASHRAE this spring. The courses will run from March until May, and also include:

  • Humidity Controls: Basic Principles, Loads, and Equipment
  • Humidity Controls: Application, Control Levels, & Mold Avoidance
  • Introduction to Green Buildings and Sustainable Construction
  • The Commissioning Process and Guideline 0
  • Introduction to Thermal Energy Storage Systems for Air Conditioning
  • Complying with Standard 90.1-2007 HVAC/Mechanical
  • Energy Management in New and Existing Buildings: A Sustainable Activity
  • Complying with Standard 90.1-2007 Envelope/Lighting
  • Using Standard 90.1-2007 to Meet LEED Requirements
  • Introduction to Cleanroom Design
  • District Cooling and Heating Systems: Central Plants
  • Complying with Requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2007
  • Understanding and Designing Dedicated Outside Air Systems

The courses run in real time from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT, feature interactive audio, and can earn course-takers three professional development hours, American Institute of Architects learning units, or 0.3 continuing education units for each course.
