Your first step to becoming a “Super Technician” in the HVAC career field is to understand the basics of HVAC and learning the skills necessary to enter the HVAC career field.

This e-course is more than just a basic introduction to HVAC provided by most other HVAC training and blows away the common misconception that HVACHVAC Certification and Training cannot be learned on line.

The focus of this course is on the two most important skills for successful technicians: refrigeration and electrical theory. Mastery of these two concepts is the difference between an okay HVAC technician and a superstar HVAC technician. Your instructor is available via email for 12 months after you course completion to help make the transition from HVAC student to HVAC technician.
