Being on the front lines of education, we know that the HVACR industry is reinventing how training is prepared, delivered and consumed, to meet the needs of our students, technicians and customers. A few months ago, we created and implemented an exciting new training platform, with multiple options, to meet the needs of industry professionals, as well those preparing to embark on HVACR careers, called the ESCO Learning Network (ELN).
ELN is a destination where individuals can obtain information, access digital curriculum, immersive learning, streaming videos, watch webinars, find industry news, and participate in live events – confident that the information being presented is of the highest quality and has been properly vetted. In addition, many of the programs allow one to earn and download a continuing education unit certificate upon completion of a course.
Listed below are some of the channels now available on ELN. We invite you to take create a free account and take a look around.
Instructors incorporate various teaching methodologies into their training. Students are encouraged to use multiple senses to read content, hear content, and ultimately practice what they are learning through questions, quizzes and other assessment tools. These same techniques used in the classroom are now being integrated into what is collectively referred to as immersive learning, where learning is approached from many different angles, allowing a person to learn the content in various ways. ESCO Institute is converting many of its leading titles into immersive learning resources.
Honeywell is offering a new remote learning series designed to help existing and aspiring HVACR professionals navigate the complicated world of refrigerants.
