Special ASHRAE Certification Exam Administration

How to Plan and Schedule a Special ASHRAE Exam Administration

Planning a conference or trade show?  Want to promote ASHRAE Certification at the event?  Here’s how you can help.  Schedule a special exam administration to be held during the conference.

Special administrations of the exam at industry events, given in paper and pencil form, may be scheduled through the ASHRAE office.  Though ASHRAE does not require or endorse any particular course of study, taking the exam immediately after attending a conference can be of benefit to applicants.  Candidates learn about recent developments within the HVAC&R industry just prior to taking the test.   The testing time is integrated into the conference schedule to provide easy access without missing program sessions. 

In order to qualify, a special administration must:

  • Be sponsored by a national or international organization in the HVAC&R industry
  • Be conducted at a national or international conference or trade show 
  • Have a minimum of ten (10) applicants for certifications
  • Be scheduled at least ninety (90) days in advance of the examination date
