ASHRAE announces opening of Global Training Center in Dubai

October 23, 2017 – ASHRAE celebrated the grand opening of its Global Training Center in Dubai with a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception. The Global Training Center will serve ASHRAE members and other building systems professionals in the Gulf Region and surrounding areas.

The focus of the ASHRAE Global Training Center is to make curricula-based training conveniently available on a regular schedule. The training offered in the center is customized and scalable based upon climate, culture, suppliers, energy sources, prices, codes and construction practices. The center’s instructors are engineers familiar with the intricacies of the Middle East.

To commemorate the opening, ASHRAE hosted a day of events, including a ribbon cutting ceremony, media tours of the facility, and presentations from key ASHRAE members, including some of the center’s course instructors.

The Global Training Center held its inaugural training from Sept. 10-12. The course, “HVAC Design Essentials” provided participants with practical skills and knowledge to design and maintain HVAC systems. Participants received real-world examples of HVAC systems based on the renovated ASHRAE Headquarters and on buildings in the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) region. The training leaders for this course were Walid Chakroun, Ph.D., Fellow ASHRAE, and Donald Brandt, BEAP.

All courses are eligible for Professional Development Hours (PDHs). Credits correspond to the hours of instruction. These credits are recognized by the ASHRAE Global Training Center for Building Excellence
