HVAC SAVE (System Adjustment and Verified Efficiency) is a one-day training and certification that prepares you to implement HVAC Quality Installation and Quality Maintenance practices for new and existing systems and equips you with the tools to measure the installed operating efficiency of almost any heating and/or cooling system. The success of HVAC SAVE is due in great part to the web based software that enables you to access HVAC equipment performance in real time. This program has been operating since 2010 in Iowa and over 2,100 contractors have been HVAC SAVE certified to date. There are four upcoming trainings in Illinois that you can participate in:
Peoria -- April 28, 2015 -- See Flyer

What students are saying about the training series:

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you guys for holding the Sales and Marketing Seminar for contractors in the energy efficiency industry. It was jam-packed with useful information that has really started to make a difference for me now, about 2 months later. I would say that I struggled to apply the information at first, but not due to the content or delivery method more so due to that I wasnt in a professional situation that warranted its use until now. Recently, I even called the gentleman who gave the seminar where he lives in California and he was kind enough to spend time to explain things to me that I was struggling with, and the result is that I am quite optimistic and confident at a whole new level in my ability to get the word out about my business. If you guys ever have him back, please let me know so I can nab a front-row seat! - Anthony G.
