Training & Testing

Part of being a well-informed HVAC technician includes staying up-to-date with new technology, standards, and products in the ever-changing heating and cooling industry. This is why we offer contractor training classes throughout the year that help technicians stay current on their HVAC knowledge.

Types of HVAC Classes

We essentially offer two types of classes: classes on topics our contractors ask us about or request and classes for certification. Contractor-requested classes cover various topics ranging from product and sales training, customer service tips, and other subjects that are designed to improve the quality of service homeowners receive.

Certification courses include sessions led by manufacturer representatives that train technicians on product knowledge, equipment installation, and troubleshooting techniques. We also offer test preparation classes that help technicians master the skills and concepts necessary to certify and re-certify for the NATE and EPA exams.

All courses are presented by industry experts who have years of experience. Although classes differ year by year, recent course offerings include:
