New course on VRF one of 11 offered in ASHRAE Spring Online Course series

A new course, “Variable Refrigerant Flow System Design & Application,” is one of 11 offerings in ASHRAE’s Spring Online Course series.

The course, May 16, provides nonmanufacturer specific concepts of how to apply VRF systems to buildings. It will supplement the fundamental technology introduction presented in the 2012 ASHRAE Handbook, HVAC Systems and Equipment, offering the consulting engineers who already have a basic knowledge of VRF technology.

The online professional development seminars focused on commissioning, spring environmental quality, energy efficiency, HVAC applications, and standards and guidelines are being offered by the ASHRAE Learning Institute.

Participants can access these instructor-led courses from anywhere with an Internet connection, and earn continuing education units/professional development hours for each course completed.

All courses provide professional development through in-depth information that is timely, practical and advanced beyond a fundamental level. Online courses are offered every spring and fall.
