Product Training

Modine offers comprehensive courses detailing our broad range of products, professional services, Breeze™ AccuSpec, and detailed descriptions of industry-related concepts.

The classes can be conducted in a variety of settings – at our corporate headquarters in Racine, WI; at our manufacturing locations in Buena Vista, VA or West Kingston, RI; or convenient mobile training right at your office.

Training at our Racine headquarters includes a full tour of the facility and our state-of-the-art sound lab. Students have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on training segment where they complete start-ups and troubleshooting. This experience is part of Modine’s partnership with the HVAC division of Gateway Technical College.

Professional Development Seminars

Our Professional Development Seminars were designed from a joint effort of the Modine HVAC Engineer team and Milwaukee School of Engineering to provide an understanding of HVAC technologies. The various seminars below are offered at each Innovation Tour stop or at your location by request.
