The value of hands-on HVAC & energy training


Benefits of being an HVAC & energy technician


“After sending our techs to PPATEC for personal in-house training, we knew we made the right choice for them to be our resource for hands-on training, because we were able to send our techs out instantly after that training to perform PMs, and they did them successfully.”
Blair Eckenrode, Residential Service Operations Manager, Haller Enterprises

“Suburban Propane has partnered with PPATEC for over 5 years to offer customized training solutions for our team members throughout the East Coast.

“If you want all your people moving in the same direction, with the same mission in mind you can dominate your companies daily work load and look like champs to your customers, vendors, and even competition. Investing in training your employees through Pennsylvania Petroleum is a perfect start towards that goal.”
Patrick Boyle, Operations Manager, Boyle Energy


“The air conditioning and heat pump training offered by the PPA is an excellent resource for our technicians. Various class options allow each of our technicians to participate in a topic that is relative to their experience level. The timing of the classes are also ideal as they typically occur right as we are transitioning into the air conditioning season.”
Dan Simoncini, Service Manager, Aero Energy
