About the HVAC Contractor Training Curriculum
Our curriculum is designed to empower all those who attend! These modules are not your standard training events covering the basics. These individual classes dig deep into the WHY and HOW our VRF and Ductless systems operate; how they must be applied, installed and serviced. The program stresses that success comes ONLY when one fully understands that VRF and Ductless products are applied products that operate similarly to computers and current industry techniques and habits may not apply to this technology.
We offer three separate VRF trainings depending on what you feel like you need more education in—if you are brand new to VRF, we recommend all three (see complete details here.) :
- Product and Application: This two-day VRF training goes into the details of VRF technology, including the criteria required for VRF design, the important calculations you won’t want to miss, and hands-on software training.
- Installation: With this one-day comprehensive session, you will learn the ins and outs of installation, including what tools you need, all of the parts and supplies that are required, and the many design guidelines you must follow for an effective system.
- Controls: Another one-day session, this VRF training is all hands on, letting you learn first-hand how all of the controls operate in detail so you can be fully confident in the process.
