Assemble, test, disassemble…and learn

Whether working on the service, design, or application side of the HVAC-R industry, workers must possess strong manual abilities. Hands-on training is critical for becoming familiar with the large array of tools and equipment they will use to install, maintain, or repair various systems in real-world situations.

Our HVAC-R skill trainers are designed to teach the basic skills of wiring, piping, evacuating, charging, testing, and troubleshooting. Most HVAC training equipment and materials are provided as kits, designed to be assembled, tested, and disassembled by one or two students performing a series of tasks.

“When we received an advanced manufacturing grant from Governor Baker, AET was a great resource to guide us through the process of design, equipment selection, and installation. Our program is now equipped with equipment that will provide our students with cutting edge technology which will prepare them for college and career readiness.”

Dr. Heidi Riccio, Superintendent-Director
Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School

“AET Labs has been our savior in creating the Blackstone Valley Education Hub (BV Ed Hub)! The Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce was fortunate enough to receive a large Work Skills Capital Grant from the MA Department of Higher Ed to create fabrication, design and computer labs. AET Labs provided us with the expertise and know-how we needed to successfully reach our goals. . . At the end of the project we got rave reviews from the community, our students, teachers, schools and our legislators.”
