New eLearning System Launched

May 22, 2006
ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and Elsevier Inc. have launched a new eLearning system.

The system provides complete learning experiences that focus on learning-by-doing that can be taken at any time and at the learner's own pace. It offers online instruction with interactive exercises and problem-solving demonstrations supplemented by authoritative course readers in eBook and printed formats.

The system also offers integrated assessment, skills tracking for earning CEU/PDH credits, and online registration and retrieval of certificates of course completion.

"ASHRAE eLearning Systems from the ASHRAE Learning Institute offer a flexible, skills-focused, approach that meets today's learning needs," said Gordon Holness, P.E., chairman emeritus, Albert Kahn Associates Inc. Architects and Engineers. "These learning on-demand programs are backed up with authoritative references from the ASHRAE Learning Institute, providing the real-world training experience that employers are seeking."

"We believe the ASHRAE eLearning System will revolutionize HVACR professional development by allowing engineers to earn their CEU/PDH in an interactive online environment from their office or home without being burdened by the additional expense of accommodation and travel," said Jim DeWolf, Elsevier's vice-president of publishing.

Demonstration modules of the course and registration information are available at www.ashrae-elearning.org.
