The Center’s instructors are practising engineers, familiar with the HVAC&R complexities of the Middle East, the communiqué said.

Details of the courses are:

Building Excellence Credentials MENA: According to ASHRAE, credits earned from this course will be recognised by the Building Excellence Credential. The Credential aids design firms, equipment suppliers, contractors, and facility owners in identifying engineers trained in the correct application of ASHRAE standards and new technologies, the communiqué said.

Commercial Building Energy Audits (MENA): According to ASHRAE, this training covers the information needed to perform commercial building energy audits. Best practices and other information relevant for building owners, managers, and government entities will be covered, the communiqué said. The training includes a summary of materials essential for performing Level 1, 2, and 3 audits, time-saving tips for every auditor, how to hire an auditor, what to ask for in a comprehensive audit report and how to build a successful energy efficiency retrofit team, the communiqué further said.
Date: April 1
