The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has developed a module that helps engineers learn about energy conservation standards in a short course that addresses compliance with new energy regulations.
The new continuing education module, based on its existing short course, addresses compliance with the HVAC and service water heating sections of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2001, Energy Standard for Buildings except low-rise residential buildings.
The module is designed for use by businesses, educational institutions, or ASHRAE chapters as seminars or "lunch and learn" programs.
"Local speakers who are familiar with the material can use the module to make a presentation," Mark Hydeman, instructor of the short course and narrator of the module, said in a written statement. "It serves as a tool to train other trainers and prepare them to present the material."
The 3-hour module includes student handouts, instructor's materials, and a series of PowerPoint slides, all contained on a CD.
Guidance on complying with 90.1 also can be found on a new online program.
