Idaho College Readies Online Learning
Now, one hvacr instructor from North Idaho College (NIC), Chris Compton, is ready to take one step towards that future of training. Compton has announced that HVACReducation.net will go online sometime in September 2001.
“One of the biggest problems facing the industry today is a growing demand for and a dwindling supply of qualified hvacr technicians,” said Compton. “HVACReducation.net will provide a solution to this problem by offering affordable, accessible training to anyone, anywhere, at any time through the Internet.”
HVACReducation.net will have online lesson modules that will be available to students by entering a password. The student can then work on the class without having to travel to a classroom. Also, participants will take tests online and interact with instructors and other students through e-mail.
According to Compton, NIC became interested with distance learning after hearing from contractors, employers, and students about the time and money constraints of working for a business and going to school.
“By offering classes over the Internet, which is already a proven method of academics and other vocational fields, we can enable employers to send their technicians to school without losing them from work and spending thousands of dollars,” said Compton.
