"The training was very useful as a lot of important topics were discussed like heat load calculation which is a major component for any design."

"Extremely helpful for all design and sales engineers. Good investment of time and resources.” 

“This training is really a good opportunity for those entering into the HVAC industry. Because in the University many equations and topics are discussed but this training shows the sequence of activities related to the design of the HVAC system.”

"It was good, especially as non-HVAC Engineers. As I work for MEP consultant, it is a good thing to know all the basic and fundamental for HVAC. The class introduced me to all trivial components in HVAC systems. The instructor provided all the participants with good and easy to use material."

“Meaningful to all owner, landlord, and facilities Eng. /Mgr. to attend the training to understand detail of HVAC design and selection of the equipment to a particular building or existing building.”

“This training course is very interesting. It helps me to understand a whole picture of HVAC designing by all kinds of different cases. The instructors are very experienced in this field. It’s worthy joining the training.”

“This training has broadening my knowledge on HVAC&R design and applications. I have better understanding of the use of fundamentals & psychrometric in design, operation, maintenance and applications."

“The course wraps most concepts and applications of the HVAC industry in a brief yet reasonably detailed way. It provides a better view of the different aspects of the industry for the recently graduated students.”

“One of the most effective training programs I have attended with the presence of the academic experience and field experience in the same training covering the topic end-to-end. The examples from regional case studies added value to the whole understanding of the topic.”

"It was a great experience. I think it will help me a lot in future projects.”

“The course helped me to understand deeply the concept of designs and application. It was worth the wait.”
