If you want to know why your HVAC training program isn’t motivating your techs to up-skill, start by taking a look at how engaged they are.
One of the biggest challenges faced by growing HVAC businesses is consistency. Your customers expect the same level of service no matter if you're sending out your most seasoned veteran or the tech you most recently hired.
As an HVAC Tech, you’re serious about your career, and you obviously want to get the best training out there. You want to learn new skills, master advanced concepts, and practice your craft until you're a pro.
Continuing education has always been an essential component of maintaining an excellent team of HVAC technicians. Ongoing HVAC training helps technicians stay up to date on the latest technology, keeps their skills sharp, reduces on the job mistakes, improves job satisfaction, and boosts retention rates.
Interplay Learning recently launched a popular, and highly-rated (short) course called HVAC Basics- NATE: Ready to Work.
Interplay Learning recently exhibited at the 2019 ACCA Expo and Conference in San Antonio, TX.
You can now earn NATE Continuing Education Units or hours (CEUs) when you complete Interplay Learning HVAC courses.
This will help you gain the 16 CEU hours you need to re-certify every two years.
HVAC/R technicians with two or more years of HVAC/R experience can earn installation or service certification in one or more of the 21 specialty areas offered by NATE. Certification requires that the technician passes both the core exam and an installation or service exam for a specialty. But then, you need to earn 16 CEU hours every 2 years.
A great HVAC tech is well-versed in troubleshooting all industry equipment. But like any special craft, it takes time and experience to be able to really master a skilled trade.
Everyone knows that HVAC systems are an integral part of the home. But did you know that they also have a really interesting history?
