calling all techs!

Basic Electricity for HVAC Maintenance, Pueblo │ July 7, 2016
9:00am to 4:00pm
register now

Join us if you are a technician who encounters the electrical components of HVAC/R equipment—especially if you are preparing for NATE Service or Core Certification tests.

In this class, you will learn how to diagnose circuits in HVAC/R equipment and components; and gain hands-on experience. Fundamentals of electricity will be covered in the morning classroom. This will be followed by a three-hour hands-on component in the afternoon. You will wire a complete low-voltage circuit for a gas heat and A/C split system, and wire the line voltage of a multispeed blower motor and fan relay. Class size is limited, so register today!

Asbestos Operations and Maintenance, Denver │ July 13 & 14, 2016
8:00am to 4:30pm
register now

Colorado Hazard will host this hands-on workshop and demonstration. Designed to provide training for asbestos small-scale operations and maintenance activities, this class covers asbestos types, locations, current regulations, and effects of exposure. Many structures built prior to 1978 contain asbestos in floor tile, sheet linoleum, mastics, drywall textures, joint compounds, roofing materials, exterior siding, pipe/boiler insulations, HVAC duct insulations, and other related coatings.

This course meets the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) General Industry Asbestos Standard, the OSHA Construction Asbestos Standard, and the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).

Upon completion of the course, participants will have hands-on knowledge of how to repair and manage asbestos materials in their properties, including a certificate documenting their attendance.

we love member requests

Special recognition goes to Angie Banza for requesting the recently offered procurement class. Angie’s name was drawn from all members who submitted class ideas that were used in the second quarter. In appreciation for her ideas, Angie will be the recipient of a $25 Visa gift card (and a little CHFA schwag)!

chfareach is going paperless!

In a continued commitment to “green” practices, chfareach is going paperless. Our calendar is online, registration is electronic, and now it is time to fully convert our quarterly class list.

This means that we will no longer be mailing out our At-a-Glance class list. Stay tuned right here on the chfareach eNews, where we announce new classes, changes, and upcoming events. In addition, the list can always be found online as a printable PDF.

We are very excited about the opportunity that technology gives us to broaden access to our great training programs. We hope you will find these tools easy to use, and allow you to access chfareach anytime and anyplace you happen to be.
