HVACR eLearning Giants to Merge

What happens when two powerhouses join forces? Amazing things happen!
Think about what happened when chocolate and peanut butter got together. How about Disney and Pixar, or Sirius and XM radio. You get the idea. Now, two of the top providers of elearning content for the HVACR and building science fields are joining forces, combining their elearning centers, offering hundreds of titles, into a singular website. On March 1, 2021, the ESCO Institute and the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) launched the “HVACR Learning Network,” where training material from their organizations, as well content from many industry leading organizations, can be accessed.
The executive boards of both ESCO and RSES unanimously approved the merger of their learning centers, knowing that this union would bring together the resources and expertise that is needed to meet the rapidly evolving needs of HVACR professionals. This collaborative effort creates a cradle-to-grave educational pathway for the HVACR Industry.
Some of the content providers now streaming on the site include; Chemours, Coscia Communications, ESCO Institute, Honeywell, Prokup Media, Technical Training Associates to name a few.
To access hundreds of great titles, visit or and click the elearning link or banner.
