2018 National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference

March 26-28, 2018 – South Point Hotel, Las Vegas, NV.

The HVACR industry is changing, instructors are you ready?

HFO Refrigerants, ductless mini-splits, cloud-based remote diagnostic tools and variable capacity systems are examples of how the HVACR industry is changing. To keep HVAC training programs current and up to speed on these changes, it is essential that HVACR instructors obtain professional development.

HVAC Excellence understands that an instructor’s professional development must be based on the needs of the industry. To support the changing needs of our industry, HVAC Excellence convenes the National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference, where professional development exclusive to the needs of the HVACR industry is offered.

This conference helps HVACR instructors: improve their understanding of the physics and theories needed for teaching, incorporate emerging technologies into the classroom, gain the knowledge to improve student outcomes, learn about new educational delivery methodologies, understand regulatory changes, and network with peers to discuss approaches for incorporating these technologies, methods and concepts into their own programs back home.

Additional Reasons to Attend


Fifty Plus Sessions Offered

Fifty plus lecture-based and hands-on sessions will be offered to introduce, teach and reinforce, at all levels, the concepts, theories and methodologies on which the building sciences rely.

Free Educator Credentialing Exams

To help instructors verify the depth of their knowledge and evaluate where they may need professional development, educator credentialing exams will be offered free of charge.

HVACR Exposition

The exposition portion of the conference is where instructors meet industry leaders to learn and discuss the latest in equipment, refrigerants, curriculum, software, tools, test instruments, educational trainers, and career placement.
