WEST SENECA, N.Y. — On August 4, 2021, a train-the-trainer session on heat pump performance will be held at United Association Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 22, West Seneca, NY, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The session will be jointly held by the International Training Fund (ITF) of the United Association of Plumbers, Pipefitters, Sprinkler Fitters, Welders, and HVACR Service Technicians (UA) and North Park Innovations (NPI).
The ITF, in partnership with NPI, has created two types of training modules to support this program. One is a heat pump water heater and the other is a split system heat pump. Both units have iManifold Pulse equipment mounted for demonstration purposes. NYSERDA (New York State Energy and Research Development Authority) awarded a funding match to enable the development of high-tech products to train current and future technicians in New York State’s HVACR industry.
