ST. LOUIS - Emerson Climate Technologies is now offering comprehensive HVAC Instructor Kits to industry educators. Instructors can use the information in the kits as learning tools for educating current and future HVAC contractors on many industry facets and hot-button issues.

"HVAC instructors face unique teaching challenges," said Tim Fletcher, brand manager - A/C Contractors and End Users for Emerson Climate Technologies. "Most of the equipment contractors need to work on is large and expensive, making it hard to get into a classroom. We've given them an educational resource that fits in their hands and is able to demonstrate the concepts they are teaching in a meaningful way."

The kits include: Copeland scroll compressor visualizer tools, a 3- to 5-ton scroll set, educational posters, an informational CD-ROM, a Comfort Alert Diagnostics sample module, cut-away diagrams of HVAC components, and information on R-410A and 13 SEER.

"It is so important that we have support from Emerson Climate Technologies as we work to prepare quality HVAC technicians," said Mark Peila, HVACR instructor and Council of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Educators (CARE) vice president of post-secondary schools at Bates Technical College in Tacoma, Wash. "Emerson has been involved with helping instructors keep abreast of changes and new technology in the industry for many years. Their dedication to helping us educate the next generation of industry professionals is invaluable."
