Over 32,000 HVACR technicians are currently certified in various specialties, including air conditioning, air distribution, heat pumps, furnaces, hydronics, refrigeration and ground source heat pump installation. Haier America will now be able to give any contractor who is a NATE member 12 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
“We are pleased with the advancements that we’ve made with our HVAC Training Center,” said Gina Copeland, senior vice president of Air Quality, Haier America. “As Haier expands our air quality business in the U.S., our training center will be second to none as a resource for our customers.”
