Chris Compton, CMHE, is a 20 year HVACR instructor at North Idaho College, saw a unique opportunity in online education (high quality education anywhere and anytime via the Internet) to help new students and anyone already working in the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and or Building Performance. From that idea, HVACRedu.net grew. Chris has become the specialist in online curriculum development for the trades, the psychology behind online learning, creating web pages, use of video and simulation instruction, and learning through the web.

Chris brings 37 years of experience in the HVACR field as a student, technician, contractor, and instructor. He has been 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 (Association of Career and Technical Education), formerly AVA (American Vocational Association). He received the Imperial Award from RSES for Commercial Refrigeration in 1997, and is a CMS member of RSES. Chris has achieved the CMHE (Certified Master HVACR Educator) status from HVAC Excellence. In 2014 he was selected as the Teacher of the Year by the ACHR News. Chris serves as an educational consultant and advisor to HVACR and Building Performance online learning efforts around the Globe. Chris loves the outdoors – especially when he’s fly fishing, driving his brand new 1948 Stinson 108-3, playing horseshoes, working the Blue C Ranch, singing bluegrass or trolling for silvers in the Straits of Juan de Fuca.
