Isaac Heating and Air Conditioning and Monmouth County Vocational School earn accreditation.

ARLINGTON, Va. - Isaac Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. in Rochester, N.Y., and Monmouth County Vocational School in Freehold, N.J., are the two latest HVACR training programs to receive approval through the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Accreditation program.

"Isaac Heating and Air Conditioning has earned the distinction of being the first contractor-training program to receive the accreditation through the PAHRA program," said Ray Mach, director of education for the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute. "This outstanding program achieved accreditation in two areas, residential air conditioning and heating, and light-commercial air conditioning and heating.

"Additionally, Monmouth County has become the first New Jersey program to be awarded PAHRA," Mach added. "And the program's instructor, Guy Letrick, was the first runner-up in last year's Instructor of the Year competition."

According to PAHRA, accreditation through the program certifies that the HVACR programs at these institutions have exceeded industry standards in its instruction, curriculum, students, faculty qualifications and facility standards in the areas of residential air conditioning and heating, light-commercial air conditioning and heating, and commercial refrigeration.
