The National Air Duct Cleaners Association has inked an agreement with the Indoor Air Quality Association to work together on training each others’ members. 

Under its terms, NADCA and IAQA will promote the training programs and educational publications of the other, and representatives from each group will attend the other’s events. 

“We’re excited to partner with IAQA and offer our members additional resources that will help grow their businesses,” said NADCA Executive Director Jodi Araujo. 

NADCA members will be able to purchase IAQA-sponsored online education classes at deep discounts. Such classes will count toward NADCA certification, officials said. 

There are major positives for members of both groups, said IAQA Executive Director Glenn Fellman.

“Members of both IAQA and NADCA will benefit from the new partnership,” Fellman said. “NADCA members will have access to IAQA University online classes, which will certainly encourage more industry professionals to maintain their NADCA certification. IAQA members will be connected to the world’s best HVAC system cleaning and inspection contractors, including access to NADCA educational programs, publications and more.”

Araujo said she is excited about NADCA’s future. 

“2014 is sure to be a productive year,” she said. “We will be exhibiting and presenting at each other’s annual meeting, both of which will be held in March, and we will continue to work together to provide our respective members the educational tools and benefits to help them save money and be more effective in their marketplaces.”

The IAQA currently partners with the Air Conditioning Contractors of America and the Residential Energy Services Network to host the annual Indoor Air Expo.
