Ameri-Sills, fast-track method of training, delivers the most engaging experience since we train you in a matter of weeks vs. one year or more through traditional industry pathways. All classes are offered simultaneously so you can enroll at any time. The training center is conveniently located near Ontario International Airport (California).

  • Each course is a blended course of online academics and in person hands-on training and competency demonstration. Academics are completed prior to arrival at the training center. Hands-on skill building time is maximized!
  • Online academics must be completed before attending the in-person 100% hands-on training. Ask about specific requirements before checking in on the first day of training.
  • Our program is based on performance, rather than theory, allowing technicians to apply their newly acquired knowledge and skills instantly! Not employed? Ask about guaranteed interviews with our principal contractors. * NO guaranty of employability is inferred or in any implied

There are many benefits to this approach

  • Lowest cost of learning as the learning is compressed
  • Each learner must demonstrate each competency
  • Complete the training program with the appropriate certification level(s)
  • All academics are HVAC Excellence-accredited. Most instructors are certified Master HVACR Educators.
  • Individually work on operational equipment. Not mock-ups of equipment.
  • It is essential to work on and do-the-tasks that contractors demand.
  • All tools are supplied during training

There are three levels of training. Note that the task lists here are representative only. The actual learning and task list are much greater in length and depth.
