WESTPORT, Conn. — The 2018 AHR Expo expanded its seminar program, making it the largest-ever education and training agenda in the show’s history. The expansive program features more than 120 sessions, including free best practices and industry trends seminars from leading HVACR organizations, professional certification opportunities, and continuing education programs from the ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI).

“Contractors, engineers, and other show attendees always give us high marks for the value our education program delivers, and this year we have surpassed ourselves,” said Clay Stevens, president of International Exposition Co. “The Show has become the place where industry professionals can earn CEUs [continuing education units], complete certification exams, and learn about the latest developments and best practices in free and paid seminars.”

More than 70 of the free, one- and two-hour educational sessions will be presented by experts from prominent industry-leading organizations. Sessions have been designed to allow for easy integration of valuable education time into attendees’ overall agendas.

The AHR Expo will incorporate many opportunities for attendees to participate in ALI continuing education courses.

All courses are approved for CEUs toward maintaining professional engineer licensure. Advance registration and fee payment is required and can be completed by visiting ASHRAE’s registration website. Each full-day course will earn attendees six professional development hours (PDHs)/learning units (LUs) or 0.6 CEUs, and half-day courses earn attendees three PDHs.

In addition, attendees can see what’s new from manufacturers in the New Product and Technology Showcase. With no cost or reservation required, more than 100 20-minute product presentations will be delivered in rapid-fire succession in special theaters on the exhibit floor. The showcase provides an efficient way to learn about the latest developments from the industry’s technology providers.
