Williams Comfort Air and other Indianapolis-area HVAC companies cannot find enough trained people to fill all of the skilled trades jobs that are available. This course is designed to train people to be able to step into one of these entry-level positions, earn a great starting wage, and immediately contribute to team and client needs.
The free HVAC training classes we are offering include instruction in everyday on-the-job HVAC skills, such as basic HVAC components and the basic heat exchange process. There are also labs to demonstrate these skills and concepts. Those who complete this training will be prepared to take the NATE ‘Ready to Work Certificate’ exam. The completion of this course does not guarantee employment at Williams Comfort Air or any other HVAC company. However, those who pass the NATE ‘Ready to Work Certificate’ exam should have an edge over other applicants when they apply for a position at any HVAC company.
Due to COVID-19 we have temporarily paused moving forward with this class.
