BOSTON — Penn Foster announced the launch of an enhanced training program focused on HVACR. The fully online curriculum, designed to equip learners with the skills and competencies critical for success in the field, will help meet the growing demand for HVACR professionals that has accelerated in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The nationwide shift to remote work means that more people than ever are staying home throughout the day — and demand for HVACR services is skyrocketing as a result,” said Dianna Worthington, director of training at Neighborly. “By making training in high-demand HVACR skills more accessible and affordable, Penn Foster is helping employers around the country expand their talent pipelines and enable more workers to pursue careers in the trades.”
“At a time of unprecedented turmoil in the labor market, it’s more important than ever to equip workers and job-seekers with skills that are not just in-demand, but resilient in the face of economic uncertainty,” said Dara Warn, chief customer officer at Penn Foster. “This new program is designed to meet a growing consumer need while also enabling learners to master the skills that can lead to more stable, fulfilling careers in a fast-growing field.”
