HURST, Texas, July 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ancora Education, a Texas-based group of private, post-secondary career training schools, today announced the launch of free online courses that will teach Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) technicians to identify and reduce pathogen aerosol transmission. The COVID-19 pandemic and elevated safety requirements, mean HVAC Technicians are increasingly called upon to identify and make system adjustments and implement strategies to mitigate the spread of viruses, like the coronavirus and other airborne/airflow issues.
"Essential workers and frontline heroes like HVAC Technicians need additional tools to keep themselves safe and combat the spread of COVID-19," said Ancora CEO, Michael Zawisky. "We hope that these courses and our investment in the professional development of participating techs will help flatten the curve and mitigate the unwanted spread of COVID-19 across the state of Texas."
This free, online, and self-paced course is intended for HVAC professionals covering four important areas of focus: Understanding Pathogens, Safety & Personal Protection, Human Engineering Strategies, and Industry-Recommended Techniques. These techniques include controlling exhaust ventilation, managing temperature, and humidity, advanced air filtration, and improving airflow.
"With this course, HVAC professionals will be able to expand their awareness and the level of service and understanding they provide their clients," said Keith DeMell, Senior Director of Program Delivery. "Participants will re-examine personal safety techniques, gain an enhanced understanding of what pathogens are, and what can affect them, as well as review the recommended industry guidelines from industry associations, and the CDC."
