Competition can be quite fierce in the HVACR industry. However, nearly one hundred companies that often compete with one another for sales, are coming together to help improve education and the way we prepare our future HVACR technicians. Amana, Calfeffi, Chemours, Daikin, Danfoss, Emerson, Fujitsu, Goodman, Honeywell, LG, Mitsubishi, Parker, Regal, and Sporlan are just a few examples of the companies that are uniting to help improve the technical competency of HVACR technicians.

How? They will all be working together to educate the HVACR instructors in our industry during the National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference, hosted by HVAC Excellence.

One very real challenge facing the industry is that HVACR instructors must teach technologies that they themselves never encountered when they were in the field. To help instructors keeps their programs current and aligned with what the industry requires from successful field technicians, nearly 100 organizations will be participating to conduct sixty-plus training sessions, and an industry exposition, March 23-25, 2020 at the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While the conference is called the National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference, it is open to anyone in the industry interested in hearing directly from industry leading manufacturers and subject matter experts, about the latest in HVACR technologies and instructional techniques.
