Heat pumps are growing in popularity throughout the country and particularly in Maine. These electric units supply both heat and air conditioning from a single unit.
According to the Maine Climate Council, more than 82,000 heat pumps have been installed in the state since 2019. Efficiency Maine currently offers significant rebates and other incentives for homes to install them. However, technicians who install today’s heat pumps must have special training that meets Efficiency Maine’s requirements. Technicians with this kind of training are in high demand!
If you want to become an Efficiency Maine-approved installer of heat pumps, then the MEMA Technical Education Center can get you there in one week.
We offer this stand-alone training to all qualified technicians who want a full-spectrum understanding of the installation and service of today’s electric heat pump systems.
You will train both in the classroom and in our 2,400-square-foot hands-on lab space using today’s high-efficiency equipment, which member companies and manufacturers provide to us. These include products from leading manufacturers such as:
Topics include system components, operating cycles, installation practices and service procedures. You will develop a comprehensive knowledge base, whether you already work in the industry or are embarking on a new career. And being an Efficiency Maine-certified vendor enables you to participate in its rebate program, a massive customer benefit!
Please bear in mind that our 40-Hour Heat Pump Training courses require that you already have your EPA Section 608 certification. If you do not, you may want to consider enrolling in our HVAC-R Professional Certification program or our Air Conditioning and Refrigeration program, which includes both EPA Certification training and this Heat Pump course in the curriculum.
Is having a nine-to-five job or other daytime responsibility preventing you from receiving the training you need to advance professionally?
We get it. At MTEC, we want you to be able to take our courses around your schedule. That’s why we offer evening training. You will receive all the same information and enjoy the same hands-on experience without missing hours at work or other obligations.
Not only that, but MTEC can help you out with financial assistance and affordable lodging.
A student who completed this course recently raved about their experience:
I am tremendously grateful to have had the opportunity to attend your class. I have never taken any course where the instructor is still active in the field they’re instructing, and it has hands down been my overall best classroom experience ever. I have sifted through the many files and templates you have gifted me and created new folders on my own computer. Having actual examples of proper business etiquette regarding how to formally quote a job and address the customer with product literature and transparency is honestly my biggest take away from your class. As someone who does estimates for their employer, and is also starting their own business, you have offered me a great deal of value. I absolutely can’t thank you enough.
We have spots available right now for qualified technicians interested in receiving comprehensive heat pump training. Wherever you are in your professional development, you can benefit from this course, and your employer will be grateful for your Efficiency Maine certification.
