One very real challenge facing the industry is that HVACR instructors must now teach technologies that they themselves never encountered when they were in the field. Equally important, HVACR instructors need to adapt to teaching in a blended learning environment.


To assist you in meeting these challenges, HVAC Excellence hosts the National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference. The conference is open to anyone in the industry interested in hearing directly from industry leading manufacturers, authors and subject matter experts, about the latest in HVACR technologies and instructional techniques.


With safety being paramount to everyone, the 2021 conference is being held online, making it easy, affordable and safe for everyone to attend.


To provide flexibility in selecting classes, the sessions scheduled on a given day, will be available for the entire day, as well as for an additional 120 days after the conclusion of the conference. This flexibility allows conference participants to learn from all of the sessions, and watch them again with their students, as many times as they wish. Upon completion of a session, attendees will be prompted to download a continuing education certificate, which they can print or file electronically.
