Chris Compton, fourteen years ago, was an HVACR instructor at North Idaho College, and was looking for a way to implement HVACR curriculum on the Internet. He saw a unique opportunity to help traditional students as well as non-degree seeking students, contractors, and the industry in general, all those searching for a way to educate their workers to be successful in the ICE and NATE exams or those needing re-training programs for individuals looking for a career change.
During this time Chris has taken many tele-learning courses on how to set up online curriculum and the psychology behind online learning, how to create web pages, video instruction and design courses for the web, and more. Currently, Chris is the lead faculty, project director, and content development manager (as well as chief cook and bottle washer) of the online effort called HVACRedu.net. Chris provides customized training and consulting services to our many clients and partners.
Chris brings with him a total of 34 years experience in the HVACR field. He is certified at the Installation and Service level in all five of the NATE certifications. In 1998 he was selected as one of the top 10 outstanding Trades and Industry Educators in the U.S. by ACTE (the Association of Career and Technical Education) formerly AVA (the American Vocational Association). He received the Imperial award from RSES for his CMS (Commercial Refrigeration) in 1997 and is a CMS member of RSES. Chris holds the HVAC Excellence Certified Subject Matter Educator Certifications in Commercial Refrigeration and Heat Pumps.
