News and Information for Technical Educators

HVAC Training Online from ESCO Institute

The HVACR industry has quickly transformed from an electromechanically-based to a digitally-based environment. It is a high tech industry that requires that its workers have a strong STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) background in order to become successful.

Significant technological changes to the industry include: coupling equipment to Wi-Fi technology, digital gauges and instrumentation, data center cooling technologies, ductless split systems, variable refrigerant flow systems, and variable refrigerant temperature control strategies.

As instructors are being asked to prepare students for entry into an industry that is very different than the one they themselves worked in, they need the resources to meet the needs of the ever-changing HVACR industry. The HVACR Education Resource Network can provide valuable assistance with the creation of a brand new program, or help elevate an existing program to a higher level.

To assist HVACR students and technicians in continuing their education, ESCO Institute is hosting FREE webinars. On-demand: Immediate access to recorded content. Live: Scheduled training which will later be added to the on-demand section.


HVACR and plumbing educational programs located in high schools, community colleges, trade schools, or apprenticeship programs will find this training can easily be integrated into your program or can be used as a stand-alone course.
