Education for Our Associates
At AAA Refrigeration Service, Inc., education is one of our main priorities. We believe that it is the key to success. It is what sets us apart from our competitors. Our education committee developed a program that would:
• include more hands on education
• be structured to meet the needs of multiple levels of apprentices knowledge and skill sets
• provide classes that offer improved continuity and flow, allowing the information to be sequenced.
Class is held for our technicians twice a month as well as monthly educational seminars.
