How many of you have gone through bad HVAC experiences? Many of us. And most of the times, the bad experience takes place when we are in such a dire need to get our appliances maintained or repaired but end up in the hands of a self-claimed professional.
Although there are authorities that issue professional certifications to trained and tested HVAC professionals and although HVAC is a field that requires professional and technical knowledge that is certified, it is still not taken as seriously as it deserves to be. And therefore, there are a number of services that claim to be professionals but are not. The consequence of such unprofessionalism is borne by homeowners when they end up losing their money without getting the service quality they demanded.
The situation suggests a need for training centres that could train on easy terms to individuals and small companies that wish to take up HVAC services as their profession. This need was felt by HVAC giant York and Source1 and here's what they have come up with:

York and Source1 launch nationwide HVAC training centres 

York and source1 collaborated to initiate a series of HVAC training centres. The first of this series centre was inaugurated in Missouri, America at the beginning of this year. More centres will be opened in areas (in the US for now) where York and Source1 exist. This training centre will train neophyte technicians and HVAC interested individuals regarding basic and professional HVAC services. For this purpose, 8 york units are housed in the main centre to be used for the first-hand experience during training.

The good thing is; HVAC professionals have gotten an opportunity to become York's certified technicians by getting themselves trained at this newly started initiative of York and Source1.

Although the general training is for residential applications only, some custom programs do incorporate the commercial application of products and some other basic and pro know-how of commercial products and their service.

Expectations associated with York & Source1 HVAC training centre initiative?

Regional general manager for source 1 Doug Comerio explained the purpose of launching the centre by saying that the training will help contractors get a better understanding of installation and other services so that as they reach out to serve, they leave homeowners with better experiences.
The expectations are directly woven with the kind of purpose this training centre aims to pursue. Since the purpose is to make professional knowledge easily accessible to learn and provide homeowners with better experiences, we as common people can expect that this initiative will help provide us with more HVAC professionals and that we will be less likely to experience the bad HVAC experiences that we always fear to face.

Who can enrol for training? 

If you are already an HVAC technician but lack professional skills & certification or if you wish to pursue HVAC as your profession, this training centre is for you. As mentioned, the first of its chain centre is currently functional in Missouri, you can go and enrol if that happens to be an area in your vicinity. Else, wait for more centres and hey! serve only when you're certified. HVAC is a professional's to do.
