Upcoming Trainings

Below is a list of current ductless heating and cooling system trainings and events. Check back often as new events are added regularly.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, many distributors have cancelled in-person trainings. The NW Ductless Heat Pump Project team will share online training opportunities as they are available. In the meantime, we encourage installers to contact their distributors and manufacturer reps to learn about available digital courses. We will update the below list of scheduled trainings if they are cancelled.

To become a NW Ductless Heat Pump Project Oriented Installer or Master Installer, visit the Program Certification page for information on how to participate via our on-demand learning platform.
