The 8 hour Legal and Safety Update for Texas ACR Professionals is the perfect class for the ACR professional working in the field. It covers the CE requirements mandated for ACR professionals by the TDLR, with a number of different impactive and useful subjects.

The course begins with an overview of recent changes to Texas law regarding the licensure of  ACR pros. It also includes information on the recent changes regarding Registered and Certified ACR Technicians.

From there, the course moves into an in-depth segment on changes in the 2017 National Electrical Code that apply to the field of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. This segment covers all the changes made to the NEC and explains them in a straightforward manner, including areas such as Article 425-Fixed Resistance and Electrode Industrial Process Heating Equipment, and Article 422-Appliances.

After we’ve gone through the NEC, we’ll examine the overall process and role of Project Management in HVAC. We’ll explore the concept of Project Management Body of Knowledge and how it can help contractors in their jobs. Then we’ll look at the individual components of Project Management, as well as the tasks of scheduling, project planning, and job costing.

Finally, we’ll finish up our course with a segment on electrical safety for ACR pros. We’ll look at the effects of electric shock on the human body, various electrical hazards, and safety methods for making the ACR pro safer in the field.

I keep coming back to your course for the format. I am here for continuing education and that is what you deliver. I do believe you don't get more out of a class than your willing to put in.

This year was more interesting and informative because of the NEC training. It wasn't the same repetitive course!
