Providing a full and comprehensive training package on all Heating & Cooling Topics!
A Veteran Owned Business!
Two friends in the Heating & Cooling business met for dinner one night and talked about the need to provide quality HVAC Training to the next generation of service technicians. One friend (Anthony) owned a successful Heating & Cooling business with an universal HVAC license (which means he can work on everything) and the other friend (Bill) was a mechanical engineer who was teaching HVAC courses at a local community college. You could say that between them, these two guys know a lot about Residential HVAC Stuff. So on that night, the seed was planted to start a Training Academy that would provide top-notch HVAC Training to those who really wanted to excel in the trade. Fast forward through a considerable amount of planning and RightTek HVAC Training was formed to serve the Mid-Atlantic region.
We proudly serve small to large HVAC companies with the best possible training found anywhere. With training locations throughout North Carolina and Virginia, we bring our training expertise to a location near you.
