Manasota Air Conditioning Contractors Association

Education Center

MACCA manages a tri-county program to strengthen career and technical school education for entry-level and skilled technicians who install, service, and maintain air-conditioning and heating equipment. This effort combines the talents and resources of manufacturers, contractors, wholesalers, and educators, among others in an ongoing program to upgrade technician competency by improving basic education and training.

In addition to quality education, MACCA is also concerned with ensuring that enough students enter the HVACR industry as technicians to properly maintain the equipment.
