ABSTRACT
The article reports that the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will launch its High-Performance Building Design Professional (HBDP) certification program at the 2008 ASHRAE annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, in June 2008. The HBDP certification program was developed in collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Green Building Initiative (GBI). It is designed to certify individuals who demonstrate a well-rounded understanding and knowledge of heating ventilation air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) design. The first batch of the certification program will be on June 25, 2008, which is a traditional pencil-and-paper-based test with a registration fee of $275 for ASHRAE member and $395 for non-members.
