Julio Herrera is the co-founder of AirCon Academy and an experienced vocational-technical skills instructor for over 30 years.
In 1979 Julio enlisted in the US NAVY where he acquired necessary skills in maintaining and servicing various types of air conditioning systems, air handlers, chillers, hydraulics/pneumatics systems, pumps, and boilers.
After the Navy, Julio made a decision to continue his career as a building engineer with Washington Metropolitan Air Transit Authority (WMATA) where he developed a passion for teaching. He felt strongly about sharing and passing his knowledge to others and taught HVAC systems, Refrigeration, Electrical Motors, Schematics, Basic Electricity, and Heat Pumps, as well, as prep courses for CFC Universal and R410-A and other refrigerants to over 9,000 students during his teaching career.
Julio Herrera believes that the online technical skills training school without walls “AirCon Academy” will provide the opportunity to learn HVAC trade to everyone, any place, any time, on any device.
“I enjoy teaching and seeing how information and knowledge which I give to my students, changes their confidence at a workplace, enhances careers and improves their financial state. I am proud of my students who are now owners of HVAC companies, directors of building engineering, or just extraordinary HVAC professionals who can troubleshoot the equipment, fix it if needed, and suggest improvements to its maintenance”
