PORTLAND, Ore. — Johnstone Supply Inc. and ACCA recently announced a national HVAC training partnership with Johnstone University.

The Johnstoneuniversity.com online training portal now includes ACCA’s entire training library and features ACCA’s Qtech® training courses, which are designed around ACCA’s nationally recognized HVAC design, installation, and maintenance standards. Successful completion of Qtech courses enables participants to receive Building Performance Institute Inc. (BPI), North American Technician Excellence (NATE), Residential Energy Services Network (RESENT), Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), and HVAC Excellence continuing education units (CEUs).

“Johnstone Supply is serious about contractor success and making it easier for them to do business,” said Judi Carpenter, director of training & business development, Johnstone Supply. “It’s more than just a mission. It’s our passion. Partnering with ACCA to make their professional training accessible to even more contractors on johnstoneuniversity.com just makes sense. Together, we’re raising the bar for the entire industry.”

ACCA is a national standards development organization for the HVAC contracting industry and has led in the creation of the Quality Installation (QI) and Quality Maintenance standards, which are recognized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

“ACCA leads the industry in the creation of these essential standards and training programs because ACCA members have long recognized that there are too many unqualified installers in the industry,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, president and CEO, ACCA. “ACCA members are committed to increasing professionalism in the industry, and we are excited that Johnstone Supply recognizes this and for partnering with ACCA on this important endeavor.”

The Johnstoneuniversity.com training platform is available for HVACR contractors 24/7, and registration is free. In addition to the new ACCA training, the site includes a calendar of live training events plus hundreds of e-learning courses on products; HVAC application and theory; safety and compliance; and leadership, business, and communication skills.
