LA CROSSE, Wis. - Building design professionals, including Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professionals (LEED APs), can fulfill continuing education now required to maintain green building credentials through new online courses being offered free of charge by Trane.

Trane said that, as a U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Education Provider, it has developed the courses to allow LEED professionals to more easily stay competitive in the sustainable building industry. The courses are also approved by the American Institute of Architects and offer architects technical education on HVAC-related design. The courses qualify as health, safety and welfare (HSW) and sustainable design (SD) continuing education (CE) learning units. Trane said it is offering the courses free of charge to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability.

Courses are available at www.trane.com/continuingeducation and currently include:

• Air-Handling Systems, Energy and IAQ

• ASHRAE Standards 62.1 and 90.1, and VAV Systems

• Central Geothermal System Design and Control

• Energy-Saving Opportunities for LEED and the Energy Policy Act

• Fans in Air-Handling Systems

• Ice Storage Design and Application

• ASHRAE Standards 62.1: Ventilation Rate Procedure

Participants can earn an average of 1.5 CE hours per program. New courses will be added as they are developed and approved.

The automated process allows users to view the 90-minute programs, take an assessment quiz and, upon successful completion, receive a certificate that documents Green Building Certification Institute information needed to self-report participation.

Each course includes supplemental material (handouts, presenter biographies, and bibliographies) and topic-related resources to help fulfill self-study requirements.
