The competition is for air conditioning students and started as a southeast Texas-area competition. Today, the contest has grown into a multi-state, national-level contest. This year’s prizes are valued at $8,000 and will include a variety of air conditioning tools.
The troubleshooting competition, which includes both beginner and advanced levels, will begin at 9 a.m. on March 9 at the Lee College air conditioning laboratory, located in Technical-Vocational Building 3 on the college’s main campus in Baytown, TX.
For the written portion of the competition, participants will complete the Industry Competency Exam (ICE). The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) has waived the fee for this exam. Participants will also complete a hands-on test of competencies, consisting of 15 problems.
Students are advised to pre-register, as seating is limited. Participating students must be registered by their instructor.
