ASHRAE Announces Spring 2011 Online Series
March 8, 2011

Two courses related to high-performance building design are being offered as part of The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Learning Institute’s (ALI) spring online series. Twelve online instructor-led short courses run from late March through early May and are available to those interested in expanding their knowledge of the HVAC industry and keeping up to date with the latest technology and their applications. Many popular courses are offered, several of which include updated material.

Basics of High Performance Building Design, taking place April 27th, focuses on the basic application of ANSI/ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2010, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, and ANSI/ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1-2009, Standard for the Design of High-Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, to achieve high-performance building design. The course focuses on the differences in purpose and requirements between Standards 189.1 and 90.1.

Advanced High Performance Building Design, May 4th, focuses on advanced concepts involved in applying Standards 90.1 and 189.1 to achieve high-performance building design. More emphasis is placed on case studies to move beyond the minimum requirements of these standards.

Those who sign up for courses before March 18th receive a reduced registration fee. A 20 percent discount is also available to participants who register for courses with related topics.
