USA: ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI) is bringing its programme of HVAC Design Level I and II training to Europe. Also included is a data centre design course.
ASHRAE’s HVAC design courses are said to provide practical design knowledge to young engineers, to engineers who have transitioned to positions and to experienced engineers who would benefit from an understanding of how new technologies rest on traditional design fundamentals.
“The greatest challenge facing engineering firms and building owners is maintaining a workforce that understands the fundamentals of HVAC design and that is current with the application of new technologies,” said Stephen Comstock, ASHRAE’s manager of business development EMEA.
Also on the schedule is a data centre design course that will be presented for the first time. Data Centre and IT Equipment Design Guidance from ASHRAE TC 9.9 for Engineers, IT Professionals and Facility Staff examines the required operational changes to data centres to achieve the maximum efficiency within the ASHRAE environmental envelopes of relative humidity, temperature and IT equipment power.
In all, four courses will be presented in three European cities – UK, Ireland and Portugal.
The three-day HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials course provides an understanding of the fundamentals of HVAC design and knowledge that can be put to immediate use. ASHRAE says it is designed to speed the transition of recent university graduates to effective practitioners that are able to meet real-world design challenges and acquaints experienced engineers with technologies to minimise energy consumption, meet current standards and improve building occupant comfort.
This course will be held from November 18-20 in Dublin and from November 25-27 in Hatfield, UK.
HVAC Design: Level II – Applications is a two-day course tailored for engineers with advanced experience in the HVAC design field, or those who have completed HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials. The training provides advanced information that ASHRAE says will allow practicing engineers and designers an opportunity to expand their exposure to HVAC systems design procedures for a better understanding of system options available today to save energy.
The Level ll course will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from November 21-22.
Data Centre and IT Equipment Design Guidance
This full day course presents the opportunities to save energy in data centres that are based on an understanding of equipment trends, performance measurements, and effectiveness that are critical to the principal objective – data integrity. The course is developed and presented by ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9, the source of data centre guidelines used throughout Europe.
Data Centre and IT Equipment Design Guidance from ASHRAE TC 9.9 for Engineers, IT Professional and Facility Staff is being held in Lisbon on November 20.
