ASHRAE Learning Institute Courses


What does the ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI) provide?

With each full-day professional development seminar or half-day short course, the ALI provides high-quality, authoritative, and credible technical resources – with all content developed through ALI’s peer-review process. In addition, the ALI will provide the instructors for the seminars/courses and a certificate of completion for each participant.


What does your Chapter provide?

Your Chapter will be responsible for providing the facility, audio-visual equipment, food and/or beverages, and communication to and registration for your seminar/course participants. If preferred, the Chapter may also contract with an instructor directly. The Chapter may set registration fees as they wish to recover their costs, provide a service to local members, or raise funds for ASHRAE research or other activities.


What will be discussed when the ALI follows up with you?

Seminar/Course & Instructor Availability

Seminars/courses are regularly updated or sometimes discontinued. It is our intention to make you fully aware of the current status of any seminar/course in which you may be interested. Our instructors are ASHRAE members, college or university faculty, and/or full-time professional engineers. As a result, each instructor’s availability depends greatly on his or her individual schedule. Seminars/courses can begin as early as 8:00 am and end as late as 5:00 pm (local time). Depending on your preference, this timeframe can include registration/sign-in, continental breakfast, lunch, short breaks, and a brief seminar/course evaluation. The required number of instruction hours will depend on the seminar/course you choose. Upon selection of program options, a summary will be forwarded for your review. Please note that programs should be selected at least 8 weeks in advance.
