1) Program Admission Requirements

The Hydronic Technician Program is designed to provide those working in the construction industry with the technical knowledge and installation skills required to install and service complete Hydronic Systems (hot water heating).

Many tradespersons working in the Hydronic Heating Industry have taken Apprenticeship in the traditional fields of Plumbing, Pipefitting, Gas Fitting or Air Conditioning/Refrigeration but lack the high degree of specialized skills and technical knowledge needed to work in the Hydronic field.

This program is designed to provide those skills and is fully endorsed by the RHWHA who is actively promoting this training within their association and industry. Many components of this program will also be of interest to those involved in Building Technologies such as Hydronic Design, Hydronic Installation and Cross Connection.
