ST. LOUIS - Emerson Climate Technologies has announced the first HVACR Spanish language North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certification preparatory courses through Emerson Educational Services. According to the company, the Spanish language course offering is part of a larger Emerson Climate Technologies initiative to provide solutions for and address the key concerns of the growing Hispanic population.

“This course offering is an extension of our efforts at Emerson Climate Technologies to provide the tools that our Spanish-speaking contractors and end-users need,” said Geoff Godwin, vice president of marketing, Emerson Climate Technologies, White-Rodgers Division. “Along with our new Spanish language thermostat, Website, customer helpline, and support initiatives, these latest training modules help us move closer to a total solution for our Spanish-speaking customers.”

The Emerson courses currently available in Spanish are “Understanding Digital Thermostat Operation” and “Resistance and Low Voltage.” Emerson plans to continue adding Spanish language courses based on their available curriculums.
