HVACRedu.net works with many leading contractors and employers all across the country to provide the training needed for their technician crews. It is time consuming for employers to create, deliver, and sustain technician training programs that meet the needs of the various levels of technicians.
Well . . . it WAS time consuming.
Now, contractors all across the country are discovering the numerous customizable HVACR Technician training programs available at their fingertips with HVACRedu.net. The industry knows that formal education is essential to the successful servicing of current HVACR equipment and to business success. Here are just a few examples of the possibilities:
Most recently, Comfort Systems USA has partnered with HVACRedu.net to establish their own custom campus for a wide variety of educational courses for their workers all across the country. You can read more about that in an article by Sara Scully at the Houston Chronicle. Brian Lane, CEO of Comfort Systems USA, states, “Comfort Systems USA is making this investment in and commitment to our frontline employees to help them advance their careers. We are happy to partner with HVACRedu.net to provide training to our technicians in a way that reflects the expectations of today’s workforce.”
One business owner told Chris Compton, founder and CEO of HVACRedu.net, that he wanted a real training school with a classroom, computer lab, and instructional equipment lab, for all his technicians to use. And he wanted his own highly skilled technicians to teach the classes. Chris worked with Rob until Minnick’s HVACR Training Center became a reality! They blended the learning environment so technicians have the flexibility of online independent study time coupled with scheduled sessions of guided instruction. As a result, Minnick’s Heating, Cooling, Energy Solutions and Geothermal located in Laurel, Maryland was approved and recognized by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. Now, Minnick’s provides the best training and the best service technicians in their city. A first class operation!
Another business owner told Chris he didn’t know where to start because he has a number of experienced technicians, a handful of new technicians, and everything in between. Chris delivered an online assessment that identified each technician’s strengths and weaknesses and created a custom program for each tech based on the results of his or her assessments. It was genius! Now, the contractor has a structured training program for every technician and he receives progress reports on his technicians’ achievements along the way. And it didn’t cost an arm and a leg because their Annual Subscription programs are customized to focus on the needed subjects.
A number of Idaho contractors keep coming back to HVACRedu.net for the related training portion of the state’s required 4-year HVACR Registered Apprenticeship Program. Contractors and business owners get more out of their technicians if they don’t have to travel to scheduled training sessions. The employers can even schedule online study time when it is most convenient, for example, between other business calls or coupled with a lunch break. And the students can put their new knowledge to work immediately. HVACRedu.net’s Apprenticeship Program is the only one with ANSI CAP and HVAC Excellence Accreditation – two measures of excellence in learning.
More? Of course there’s more. HVACRedu.net can help solve almost any HVACR (or related industry) technician training problem and customize the solution to meet the specific needs of each individual. At a time when technician education is gaining importance, it’s good to know there is a place that takes care of the individual’s specific learning needs, and takes “time consuming” out of the equation.
