HVACRedu.net’s online HVACR Apprenticeship Related Training is the only ANSI Accredited apprenticeship training program in the country.
This four year program serves as the related training/educational component of registered apprenticeship programs. But many employers find it a valuable way to provide on-the-job training to new employees, even when not used as part of a registered apprenticeship program. By the way, we are happy to offer assistance registering your apprenticeship program with our online training in your state. Please contact Patricia at 888-655-4822 Ext 1123 for help with this.
Over 150 hours of instruction are included in each year’s scope and sequence.
- Year 1 covers Safety, Basic Construction Math, Hand and Power Tools, Intro to Applied Science, Energy Sources, Intro to Code, Fuel Piping, Venting, and a soft skills Customer Service course.
- Year 2 takes the student through Intro to Blue prints, Appliance Installation, Heat Loads, Indoor Air Quality, and two Electrical courses.
- Year 3 expands to AC and Refrigeration, Air Flow and Duct Sizing, Hydronics, Controls, Sheet Metal, and a more extensive Service course.
- Year 4 students finish with Testing & Air Balance, Control Strategies, Advanced AC & Heat Pump, Systems Integration, Project Management, an Advanced Service course, and a comprehensive Code Review. More than 610 hours all told, of high quality, convenient online education.
All courses in the program have slated start and end dates on a revolving schedule. Students may enter the program at the beginning of any course. The cohort setting means students interact with others taking the same course at the same time, building relationships in the group and with the instructors as they participate in weekly discussion posts.
Within an individual course enrollment period, students can work at their own pace around their work schedules. The courses are available 24/7. The weekly requirement to take part in discussions keeps students engaged and motivated.
All courses are guided by qualified industry experts. Members of the instructor team monitor student progress, answer questions as they arise, moderate the discussions, and guide students to ensure timely progress through and successful completion of their courses.
We are a Registered Apprenticeship Training Provider. Our Apprenticeship program courses align with the US Department of Labor Apprenticeship Guidelines.
