A series of continuing education modules that can be used by businesses or educational institutions as seminars or "lunch and
learn" programs is being developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers' (ASHRAE) Learning Institute (ALI). "Participation in these educational programs will better equip attendees to respond to current issues affecting the HVAC&R industry," Donald Colliver, Ph.D., P.E., ASHRAE president, said.

The modules will be tailored for approximately 3-6-hr presentations on topics of current interest and will include
student handouts, instructor's materials and a series of PowerPoint slides. Instructors will be provided by the presenting organizations.

The first of these modules, Humidity Control in Commercial
Buildings, in the form of two 3-hr seminars, currently is available through ALI. The humidity module was developed by Lew Harriman, author of the recent ASHRAE publication, Humidity Control Design Guide for Commercial and Institutional Buildings, which was a product of ASHRAE research.

The first part of the seminar is designed for HVAC
professionals who need to control humidity in commercial or institutional buildings. The second module features a more in-depth discussion of moisture loads and how they vary by climate and building type.

The program is available to companies for an $800 licensing
fee, which allows them to present material to their employees as many times as they wish. Instructional materials are provided in the form of a CD from which licensees can print as many copies of the student handouts and instructor notes as needed. For more information, contact Anne Spengler, ASHRAE director
of education, at spengler@ashrae.org or 404-636-8400. The next continuing education module planned for development
will address ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2001, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings. The module is expected to be available in spring 2003.
