ASHRAE Learning Institute has announced that registration is open for its 2021 Spring online instructor-led course series. The 16 online offerings, including eight new courses, run from January through June.
A new course, “Reopening Commercial Buildings: Evaluating Your HVAC System’s Readiness to Mitigate the Spread of SARS-CoV-2,” taking place on January 27, expounds the online ASHRAE COVID-19 details for reopening buildings and the Building Readiness Plan for HVAC systems. The course will help reiterate mitigation strategies available and understand specific buildings arrangements.
“Health Impacts of Indoor Air Extraction, Ventilation, and Filtration – Same or Different,” scheduled for February 17, covers the future design of forced air ventilation systems and the most cost-effective HVAC operational changes and system modifications to improve existing indoor environments in reducing the spread of viruses.
“Hospital HVAC – Infection Mitigation, Comfort, Performance,” scheduled for February 23, addresses the role of HVAC systems in helping to reduce hospital-associated infections (HAI), explaining airborne vs contact transmission. This course describes the why and how filtration, air patterns, air changes, dilution, temperature, humidity, UV, and pressurization in hospital HVAC can either help or hinder efforts to reduce HAI.
The following is the full schedule of online instructor-led course offerings:
