ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) launched a new series of live online training for the HVACR industry. These 90-minute online seminars, requiring access to the Internet and a phone, are taught by contractors and other experts covering topics chosen by ACCA’s members. The sessions are interactive, allowing participants to ask questions of the presenters and provide real-time feedback.

Access to the live online seminars is on a “per-login” basis. By using a projector and a speakerphone, contractors can train their entire management staff.

A full schedule has been established for the spring. Each workshop is held at 2 p.m. EST and lasts about 90 minutes. Classes include: How to Succeed in a Changing Residential Construction Marketplace, April 10; Home Performance Contracting, April 18; LEED the Way: How Commercial Contractors Can Use the LEED Process, April 23; When Employees Steal: Protect Yourself Against Embezzlement, May 1; and The Price Is Right: Knowing Your True Costs and Setting the Right Price, May 8.

Registration for each seminar closes one week prior to its scheduled date. For more information or to register, visit
