SIDNEY, Ohio, Nov. 12, 2013 – A new online training portal enables air conditioning and refrigeration technicians to take part in training on the newest HVAC/R technologies, earn credits toward professional accreditation, access a wide variety of technical reference materials, and maintain an up-to-date record of their complete training history – all in a single location. The new Emerson Educational Services online training portal, operated by Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., is located at https://education.emersonclimate.com.
Using the new site, technicians can access the full offering of Emerson distance learning courses, encompassing dozens of titles in both online and CD-based formats. The portal also allows them to sign up for instructor-led Emerson courses that are offered at locations throughout the United States.
"The new Emerson Online Training Portal makes it simple to sign up and participate in some of the best HVAC/R training available today," said Larry Banas, director of Emerson Educational Services. "But quick and easy access to courses is only the beginning."
In addition to offering course registration and hosting online courses, the site also provides users with their own "dashboard" that allows them to track the course or courses they are taking or have completed, their performance, credits they’ve achieved, and more. The new website also contains a wide variety of free reference materials including technical bulletins and other literature, instructional videos, and reference software that can help contractors improve their productivity and efficiency.
An intuitive, easy-to-use dashboard makes it easy to access the site and maintain a personalized user profile. The portal is also fully compatible with mobile devices including smart phones and tablets, Banas noted.
"Technicians can now access their training and reference portal from almost anywhere, and keep track of their professional accreditation and training whenever it is most convenient for them," said Banas. "Plus, with the wide range of free technical reference material and online courses, they can actively improve their performance and take part in valuable training on a schedule that is completely of their own choosing."
Emerson Educational Services delivers comprehensive training programs that cover a broad array of HVAC/R topics including refrigeration fundamentals and principles, as well as critical service and technical skills. In addition, the portal offers access to in-depth and up-to-date technical training on advanced Emerson HVAC/R products and technologies.
Emerson Educational Services is an Authorized Provider of the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET), a non-profit organization devoted to quality continuing education and training programs. Many Emerson courses are accredited by North American Technician Excellence (NATE). Emerson online courses comply with Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) standards, enabling the widest possible use and compatibility.
"Emerson courses are designed with interactive features that help make learning more enjoyable, beneficial and effective, regardless of whether they take part in a classroom or a self-paced program," Banas added. "Our goal is to offer contractors valuable training and reference information that can help them become more productive and profitable in the field, while also allowing maximum flexibility and ease of use."
