The HVACR Training Authority®


HVACR & Mechanical Conference

The HVACR & Mechanical Conference for Education Professionals is a jointly-sponsored event designed to provide instructors, industry trainers, and administrators of apprentice and secondary/postsecondary school-based instructional programs with cutting-edge technical information and teaching techniques that will enable them to effectively train the next generation of skilled workers for the HVACR and plumbing industries.
To accomplish this goal, the conference is held annually at a time conducive to the targeted instructors’ school schedules (typically in March) in a location easily accessible to all; the 2015 Conference will be held in Baltimore, Md., on March 9-11, 2015.
During the conference educational sessions are held covering HVACR and plumbing technical topics, educational delivery suggestions and other relevant content. In addition, tabletop exhibits are featured to further connect instructors with industry manufacturers, with a focus on the latest innovations and practices.
The conference is currently sponsored by industry organizations that believe in the objectives of the workshop. Sponsorship of this event is intended to offset the administrative cost of conference without charging registration fees to attendees or standard exhibitor fees to manufacturers and other related companies, organizations, publishers, etc., who support the event and wish to further the knowledge and expertise of the HVACR and plumbing industry instructors and trainers.
