ASHRAE has added two new courses to its eLearning Center catalog: Ethics for the Built Environment Professional Engineer and School of Hard Knocks: Controlling Moisture & Humidity in Buildings.
Ethics for the Built Environment Professional Engineer provides an overview of engineering ethics, including the common framework for ethical decisions and key definitions needed by every professional engineer in today’s workplace. ASHRAE’s and the National Society of Professional Engineers’ (NSPE’s) codes of ethics also are discussed. Additionally, a review of several ethical case studies from the NSPE helps students better understand the duties and decisions faced by professionals within the built-environment industry.
School of Hard Knocks: Controlling Moisture & Humidity in Buildings provides lessons about moisture and humidity-related imperatives of design—both architectural and mechanical—and about moisture issues in construction and operation. The training shows specifics on how dry buildings are more resilient, comfortable, and energy-efficient than damp or moldy buildings.
Launched last year, the ASHRAE eLearning Center is full of interactive courses designed by ASHRAE professionals on a wide range of building-technology topics. Because they are Web-based, all courses and trainings are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
ASHRAE’s eLearning courses are recognized by most states for professional-development hours or continuing-education credits.
