AIRMaster+ Qualified Specialist Training/Certification

3-1/2-day workshop, Tuscaloosa, AL
111 AIME Building, University of Alabama
May 10-13, 2016

AIRMaster+ is a DOE "Best Practices" software tool that helps users analyze energy use and savings opportunities in industrial compressed air systems. Use AIRMaster+ to baseline existing and model future system operations improvements, and evaluate energy and dollar savings from many energy efficiency measures. AIRMaster+ provides a systematic approach to assessing compressed air systems, analyzing collected data, and reporting results.

DOE and the Compressed Air Challenge® recognize Qualified AIRMaster+ Specialists for their ability to use the AIRMaster+ software effectively with industrial end users. Certification is only open to individuals who have taken Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems (CAC Level 2) and successfully complete a rigorous qualifying exam. Those individuals that have not completed the prerequisite may attend the workshop, but cannot be certified. The workshop presents the software methodology, describes how to collect field data, demonstrates how to enter data, and discusses how to interpret the results.
