Clifton Beck comes to the ESCO Institute with 25-years of experience in the HVACR industry after graduating from Indiana State University. While he has served both the residential and commercial sectors of the industry, his area of focus was industrial building automation and commercial Refrigeration and VRV systems. Using this skill set, he transitioned from the field to the classroom becoming a technical service advisor and trainer for a wholesaler with 18 branches located in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Most recently, Mr. Beck worked for Bluon where he developed curriculum, and training resources for HVACR professionals.

Mr. Beck will now take his talents to the ESCO Institute, who develop standards, validation tools, and training resources for the HVACR and building science fields. As Manager of Digital Media, he will oversee the development and implementation of numerous digital resources.

“When the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, a large percentage of HVACR educators and found themselves working one day and ordered to work from home the next. As HVACR instructors tried to understand, and later acquire the resources for teaching online, Clifton was ready day one, having already launched hybrid learning. As an early adapter of this learning model, he quickly helped others understand how to transition their training as well. His ability to see the future, and understand the tools required, made him the perfect fit to help ESCO Institute take our digital resources into the next stage.” Renee Tomlinson, Executive Director
