The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute and 15 other HVAC organizations are sponsoring the 19th annual HVACR & Mechanical Conference for Educational Professionals, March 3-5 in Linthicum, Md.

Officials say the conference will provide professionals of the mechanical, plumbing and HVAC industries with techniques for developing skilled workers.

“This conference will enable instructors from around the country to share best practices and new approaches to grow this important industry,” said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. “The better equipped these education professionals are to train the newest generation of HVACR, mechanical, and plumbing technicians, the more prepared their students will be for the industry’s many rewarding, well-paying careers.”
