Are You Teaching Professionalism?
Earl Delatte, CMHE, Resource Development Manager HVAC Excellence
Forum East 4
What happened to professionalism? Should you entertain teaching such an important subject
matter as part of your training? Remember, it cannot occur by accident, it's a learned trait. Are
you setting the tone in showing students, customers or employees how to present themselves
professionally? It can be the difference in them getting and keeping the job in the career they
have chosen. Studies show that the traits most employers are seeking are work ethics and
professionalism coupled with training in a particular vocation. The people you are training are
an image of you. How you mold and train them will usually be a direct reflection of your
influence. Good work not only demonstrates a solid work ethic, but it also illustrates skill,
thoughtfulness, and confidence, which are also key features of professionalism.
Solar Hot Water: Lessons Learned
Tom Lane, President, Energy Conservation Services
Legacy South 1
Solar thermal heating is one of the most efficient forms of solar heat collection technology.
Unfortunately a key drawback in more solar thermal heating installations is a lack of HVACR
technicians with the skills needed to service or install a solar hot water or solar pool heating
system. Drawing from foundations in heating, construction, mechanical design, and fluid
dynamics, HVAC professionals are in a unique position to advance quickly in this field with the
addition of specialized product specific training in solar thermal technology. The focus of this
session will be to prepare attendees to add Solar Hot Water to their current training programs.
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Lunch & General Session “EPA Refrigerant Management & SNAP Programs”.
David Donaldson, Chief of the Stratospheric Program Implementation Branch in the

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed changes to the Section
608 regulations and certification program. Additionally, they have proposed changed to the
Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program. This session will allow attendees to hear
from the EPA about the proposed changes and their impact on the HVACR industry.
Upon conclusion of the session, grand prizes from exhibitors will be given away. You must be
present when your name is called to win.
Meals will be served from 12:00 p.m. to 12:15 p.m. allowing everyone time to be seated prior
