MT. WASHINGTON, Ky. - The Training Source, a training-consulting company, has expanded its offerings to include online HVAC and business courses. "In a joint venture with Thomson Learning's Education Direct division, we have been able to bring some college level courses directly to our customers through our Web site at www.hvactraining.com. Some of the courses include basic and advanced HVAC engineering and also some fundamental business and accounting practices," said Frank Besednjak, president and CEO of The Training Source.

Besednjak stated, "These home study courses are already approved for HVAC continuing education in the state of Alabama and we are working at getting them approved in several others. With the improvements in technology and with concerns for time management of individuals, we believe it is a natural transition for governing state agencies to allow reasonably priced online courses for continuing education. We believe with the products we are offering that The Training Source is on the forefront of this transition."

The Training Source has also recently negotiated an agreement with Microsoft to offer regularly scheduled training broadcasts using Microsoft's Live Meeting. The Live Meeting broadcasts will begin early in 2006 and the plan is to have several two- to four-hour broadcasts per week that will also be approved for continuing education credits. This will allow contractors to select several different programs that will fill their needs and also get credit for required continuing education. These broadcasts will be interactive and will include two-way voice communication, PowerPoint presentations, and users will have the ability to also speak or type in comments, answer questions, and respond to quizzes from their PC.

The Training Source offers workshops and seminars for contractors in Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, Ohio, and North Carolina. The company also provides consulting services for indoor air quality and business improvement and management. In addition, The Training Source offers books, videos, and software through its online store at www.123supply.com.
