Program Updates

The following updates are for partners that offer HVAC and Microsoft Certified Solutions programs in their catalog.


We are updating the content of the HVAC programs to include additional safety content from OSHA. The new content will teach common job-related safety and health hazards. Students completing the HVACR Technician – NATE Service Core programs (taught either in English or Spanish) will receive the OSHA 10 card, which is intended for entry level workers. Students completing the HVACR Certified Technician program will receive the OSHA 30 card, intended for supervisors or for workers with some safety responsibility. The following programs will have a change in hours and/or pricing:
