2.   “The Certification ASHRAE Stands Behind.” Earn a certification
     and it is ASHRAE saying that you understand the relevant body of
     knowledge and meet educational and experience requirements.

3.   “Feel Qualified?” While ASHRAE provides and identifies resources
     to prepare for its certifications, there is no requirement to purchase
     a book or attend a class. Just meet the eligibility requirements.
ASHRAE’s certification programs are
developed by industry practitioners who
understand the knowledge and
experience that should be expected for
superior building and refrigeration design
and system operation.
     The Value of ASHRAE Certification
To Employers: ASHRAE certification lets
