More about Trane Engineers Newsletter LIVE (ENL) programs

Trane ENL is a series of video programs focused on the design and control of HVAC systems, industry issues (sustainability, decarbonization, indoor air quality, acoustics, etc.), or codes and standards. The content is technical and educational, but non-commercial. The target audience is HVAC system design engineers; however, some programs may also be of interest to others in the industry.

Previous programs are available to view on-demand, and free of charge, in the Trane Education Center. In many states, ENL programs meet the requirements for earning Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to help meet the continuing education requirements of your professional engineer license or other certification.
