SANTA CLARITA, Calif. — The Practicing Institute of Engineering Inc. (PIE) has named UV Resources a continuing education training provider for the organization, which serves the professional development needs of the New York State Society of Professional Engineers. UV Resources is a leader in the education, application, and engineering of ultraviolet-C (UV-C) solutions.

As an approved training provider, UV Resources will offer coursework for the professional organization’s 1,500 licensed professional engineers (PEs), certified engineers in training (EITs) and engineering students throughout New York. Licensed PEs in New York are required to complete 36 hours of continuing education during each three-year registration period in order to maintain their professional credentials.

The one-hour training course offered by UV Resources, “UV-C Energy for Surface and Air Contaminant Control in HVAC&R Equipment,” addresses how engineers can leverage UV-C to benefit various air handling applications.

The course explores ASHRAE’s findings about how the UV-C wavelength is used to not only kill microbial contaminants, but how it also improves, maintains, and assures HVACR system performance while reducing system maintenance and energy consumption.

“Widely embraced in the 1990s to improve indoor air quality, many engineers now know UV-C as a means of cost effectively boosting a multitude of efficiencies,” said Forrest Fencl, president of UV Resources.

There is no charge for the course, which can be delivered in person by trained UV Resources representatives.
