ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI) has added a course specifically designed for the needs of consulting engineers.
The course, Consulting Engineering Essentials, taking place on March 29, in New Orleans, provides an overview of ownership responsibilities and offers insights to help develop project engineers into well-rounded consulting engineers.
In the course, participants will learn how to work collaboratively with people at every level, applying skills such as verbal communication and appropriate goal-setting to incorporating techniques to prioritize problems. Participants will learn how to delegate tasks, organize large teams of people, and coordinate several complex processes.
Knowledge of firm ownership and operation, business development and marketing of engineering services will also be covered.
“Young engineers and engineers new to the industry need more than the proper educational background and relevant technical experience to thrive in the profession,” states Course Instructor Dennis Wessel, P.E., Fellow/Life Member ASHRAE. “Business skills such as project management, marketing, techniques to acquire new projects and client management are crucial for long term success. This course presents these skills in a practical format.”
Consulting Engineering Essentials is one part of four HVAC Design and Operations training sessions offered by ALI. Other sessions are:
- HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials
- HVAC Design Level II – Applications
- Improving Existing Building Operation
