NADCA, IAQA Enter into Multi-Faceted Agreement

The two associations will work together to provide educational opportunities and resources to professionals in the industry.

According to a press release, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) and the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) have entered into a multi-faceted agreement that marks the beginning of several long-term cooperative programs. NADCA is an association dedicated to serving the needs of HVAC industry cleaning and inspection professionals. IAQA is a non-profit organization whose 3,000 members include indoor environmental quality consultants, contractors and managers.

The two associations will work together to provide educational opportunities and resources to professionals in the industry. This will include cross promoting webinars, trainings and workshops to each of the associations’ members. Additionally, each association has committed to supporting each others’ respective conferences and events.

“We’re excited to partner with IAQA and offer our members additional resources that will help grow their businesses,” said NADCA Executive Director, Jodi Araujo, CEM. NADCA members will have access to a specially packaged group of online education classes from IAQA that will be priced at a deep discount. NADCA will recognize these online classes for CEC fulfillment at the time of certification renewal.

“Members of both IAQA and NADCA will benefit from the new partnership,” said Glenn Fellman, Executive Director of IAQA. “NADCA members will have access to IAQA University online classes which will certainly encourage more industry professionals to maintain their NADCA certification. IAQA members will be connected to the world’s best HVAC system cleaning and inspection contractors, including access to NADCA educational programs, publications and more,” said Fellman. On a local level, IAQA chapters are preparing to focus on HVAC system cleaning at upcoming workshops, relying on NADCA members’ expertise to teach about the nuances of NADCA’s recently released standard, ACR 2013.

“2014 is sure to be a productive year,” added Araujo. “We will be exhibiting and presenting at each other’s annual meeting—both of which will be held in March, and we will continue to work together to provide our respective members the educational tools and benefits to help them save money and be more effective in their marketplaces.”
