Join us at Kalos HQ in Sunny Clermont, FL, on February 1-3, 2024

for the 5th Annual HVAC/R Training Symposium


The HVACR Training Symposium is an annual trade event that has been held at Kalos Services in Clermont, FL, since 2020. Many of the industry's finest minds come together to lead educational sessions about a wide range of applicable HVAC/R topics, from fundamentals to advanced design and diagnostics.

We've consistently welcomed speakers like Jim Bergmann, Bill Spohn, Craig Migliaccio, Alex Meaney, Ed Janowiak, and many more industry leaders. Many sponsors also come out to support the event, show off their game-changing products, and even donate fancy tools for use in our giveaways.

The symposium lasts 3 days, from Thursday to Saturday.

Sessions are either 50 or 80 minutes in length and run from 8 AM to 5 PM with a one-hour lunch break on Thursday and Friday.

Sessions end a bit earlier on Saturday to allow plenty of time for an afterparty at a local restaurant.

Our facility can only hold about 200 in-person attendees, but we also offer a virtual ticket that offers access to all of the training sessions for several months after the symposium ends.

In-person ticket sales typically sell out well in advance of the symposium, but virtual ticket sales are unlimited and will be available before, during, and after the symposium. Even though the in-person experience offers the benefits of networking opportunities and free food, the virtual ticket is a high-value offering that can also earn you up to 16 NATE CEUs and provide a wealth of useful training classes for people at all stages of their HVAC/R careers.
