More than 200 Education Professionals Attended March Conference

Arlington, Va. — The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and seventeen other organizations co-sponsored the HVACR & Mechanical Conference, formerly the Instructors’ Workshop, March 12-14, in Colorado Springs, Co. More than 200 education professionals attended the event, which is subsidized by the sponsoring organizations.

“This conference is an integral part of our effort to help instructors, industry trainers, and administrators effectively educate the next generation of skilled workers for our industry,” said Stephen Yurek, President and CEO of AHRI.

“It was good to meet other like-minded individuals,” said conference attendee Terry Robinson, Senior HVAC Instructor at Lincoln College of Technology in Grand Prairie, Texas. He plans to energize Lincoln College of Technology’s HVACR advisory board with ideas from the conference.

The Conference included sessions on radiant heating, variable frequency drives, and green buildings. The next Conference is scheduled for March 11-13, 2013, at the Cheyenne Mountain Lodge in Colorado Springs, Co. Additional information will be posted online as the event nears.
