Join us March 15 through March 17, 2015 (Sunday through Tuesday)
at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, Florida
for the 2015 HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference.

Conference Purpose

The foundation for building a great program begins with having: text books, software, assessments, equipment, trainers, tools, and test instruments. However, the most important asset of the program is the instructor! As technology changes it’s essential for instructors to have professional development that keeps their programs current and relevant. It is equally important for instructors to keep current on: educational delivery systems, work ethics programs, customer relations skills, and code changes. The National HVACR Educators / Trainers Conference and Policy Forum provides all of this and much more.

Who Should Attend

The conference is open to anyone involved in training current or future HVACR technicians. This includes but is not limited to: HVACR educators, school administrators, JATC instructors, wholesaler trainers, utility trainers, contractors who provide training, manufacturers, and others interested in learning about new technologies.

Educator Credentialing Exams

You can’t teach what you don’t know! To enable HVACR instructors to verify the depth of their knowledge and ability to relate subject matter effectively, HVAC Excellence will be offering attendees the opportunity to take credentialing exams specifically designed for HVACR educators. These exams will be offered at the conference free of charge. The exams validate if an HVACR instructor has mastered the subject matter to teach the competencies or if they need professional development in that area.


As attendees are diverse in their jobs and needs, so are the sessions offered at the conference. The conference provides concurrent sessions that enable attendees to pick the topics or tracks that best suit their needs. The sessions cover: new technologies, regulatory changes, energy auditing, teaching techniques, recruitment, retention, placement, best practices, new technology in the classroom to name a few.


When not in class attendees have an opportunity to attend an industry exposition and learn about the latest in: equipment, tools, test instruments, software, controls, refrigerants, recovery machines, curriculum, chemicals, tool kits, certifications, educational trainers, and jobs.


In the end, the quality of a program is only as good as the instructor leading it. The education your students or customers receive is dependent upon you keeping current in new technologies. Additionally, keeping current provides employers a reason to hire your graduates. Placed students help build program enrollment. We hope to see everyone March 15 – 17, 2015 at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, Florida to unite the industry around education. Register here.
