This 31-chapter study guide provides preparation for the Certified Director of Engineering (CDOE) professional designation offered by the National Association of Hotel & Lodging Engineers (NAHLE) for hotel engineers. Our online test is provided by our educational partner, the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute. We are in the process of developing a second study-guide and test for limited service property engineers. Both books include information related to the planning and organizing of tasks, overviews of hotel engineering systems, and the financial and ethical skills required to operate effectively within a hotel organization. The limited service property book has chapters that focus on low-rise wood frame construction properties with PTAC units with a detailed look at moisture infiltration. NAHLE's CCE curriculums are intended to be comprehensive and cover all hotel building engineering subjects including:  HVAC, plumbing, electrical, lighting, landscaping, swimming pools and vertical transport to name a few.

This 31-chapter study guide provides preparation for the Certified Chief Engineer(CCE) professional designation offered by the National Association of Hotel & Lodging Engineers (NAHLE) specifically for hotel engineers.
