They give participants a feel for what a day in the life of an HVAC Technician is really like.  Attendees learn about and participate in hands-on demonstrations relating to basic electrical concepts, wiring, thermostats, pressure gauges, copper brazing, condenser functionality, and more.  We’ve gotten great feedback so far on these fun and informative events.”
