The National Oilheat Research Alliance has added six new online video courses to its online training center at Learning.NORAweb.org. Each course offers two Continuing Education Units that can be applied to renew or upgrade a NORA Oilheat Technician Certification.
Offered in cooperation with six leading manufacturers in the industry, the courses provide expert instruction on the installation and use of the Beckett AquaSmart, the Carlin Pro-X 70200 Universal Oil Primary Control, the Tigerloop Oil De-aerator distributed by Westwood Products and Energy Kinetics' System 2000 and 90+ Resolute Diagnostics and Setup, Taco's How and Why to use Outdoor Reset and Honeywell's Universal Oil Burner Primary Control R7284U.
Each course requires watching a video or videos on each topic followed by a short quiz. Upon completion of the videos and passing the quiz, the CEU's are credited to the technician's account (may take up to 24 hours for the credits to show). These will be applied to the 24 CEUs needed to maintain a NORA Gold or Silver Technician Certification or may be applied to the 20 CEUs needed to upgrade from a Bronze Technician Certification to a Silver.
The video courses also serve as self instruction aids even if no CEUs are required.
These six courses join 15 video courses already on the site. These cover topics from equipment service to oil delivery to tank installation. Each offers two CEUs.
In order to access the courses, the technician must have an active user account on Learning.NORAweb.org and a link to the video courses can be found on the home page.
