ASHRAE High-Performance Building Design Professional Certification Earns ANSI Accreditation
ASHRAE’s High-Performance Building Design Professional (HBDP) certification has received accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), becoming the first certification from ASHRAE to earn the recognition.
Launched in 2008, the HBDP certification program provides the necessary training and tools for the design of high-performance buildings. The program combines the criteria of ASHRAE Standards 90.1 (energy efficiency), 62.1 (ventilation) and 55 (thermal comfort) with the approaches included in the Advanced Energy Design Guide series.
ASHRAE received the accreditation under International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 17024:2012.
Gaining ANSI accreditation of the HBDP program aligns with ASHRAE’s strategic plan and sets the stage for accreditation of other ASHRAE certification programs, including those in key energy-related jobs.
