Act 910 passed by the Arkansas Legislature in the 2019 session set into motion the transition of administration of the Arkansas HVACR Licensing Program from the Department of Health to The Department of Labor & Licensing. That can be a good thing but our industry must work together to assure that the program becomes more relevant to the industry and to consumer health and safety.
The hardest part of running a business is growing—the right way. Don’t run past your cash flow, don’t run past your manpower, don’t run past your own personal and family time. BUT, if you aren’t growing, you are going backwards. The world is constantly changing and there is always someone ready to take your customers and employees. That is why the Association will put a big emphasis on GROWING—THE RIGHT WAY this year. Our goal is to offer training opportunities and tools for you to to manage your growing business.
We never quit learning; but, getting the training can be expensive and inconvenient. During the fall and spring of 2018 – 2019, the Association conducted 15 Manual J classes and 5 Manual D classes. The classes were conducted in 10 regions of the state and the attendees paid less than the actual cost of the class.
