A society of professionals who have reached the zenith in their industries has taken a step forward for the betterment of society. After four decades, the society today has a membership of 13,000 professionals and 43 chapters across India with a student membership of 14000; it has spread its wings with Chapters in USA, Dubai and Nepal.

A recent survey reveals that young professionals must use their time during the lockdown to their advantage by educating themselves to be in tune with the growing trends in order to remain ahead of their peers. ISHRAE (The Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating & Air-conditioning Engineers) was started in 1981. This includes the young professionals in the HVAC&R industry – this is the time when opportunities are opening up for learning using the virtual platform.

Being the single largest, technical body of HVAC sector in the country, they have embarked upon a sustained training program to bridge the gap to bring about uniform quality standards for the field technicians, supervisors and engineers.

As part of the society- Institute of Excellence, ISHRAE has started the ICP (ISHRAE Certified Professional) training course, a training program with theory and practical sessions to improve the technical skills of the HVAC&R professional who needs these training modules especially when there are new guidelines for air conditioners in public places.

The course here will familiarize professionals with relevant standards, new and better filtration methods for air conditioners and cleanroom protocols (among others) based on international standards, and inverters, VRV/VRF Systems.

Their National President Richie Mittal says, “The faculty not only teach theory and practicals, but also share a considerable level of practical wisdom which is a rare commodity these days, and cannot be imparted by regular teachers.

Teaching methodologies are through PowerPoint presentations and wherever there is a need to explain the functioning of a system, animations are used to make understanding simpler.

A valid certificate will be issued to students on successful completion of the ICP Courses.
