"By updating the series, we hope to create a resource that maintains ASHRAE on the leading edge of HVAC and R education," Bill Root, chair of ASHRAE's Course Development Committee, said. "These updates also could serve as the basis for any certificate program created by ASHRAE."
The first revision will be to Fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Psychrometrics. It will be divided into two courses, Fundamentals of Thermodynamics, which will be completed by June 2004, and Fundamentals of Psychrometrics, which will be completed by September 2004. In addition, a new course, Fundamentals of Steam System Design, is being created.
