Education and Safety


Our goal is to provide quality, in-demand programming that fits the needs of the mechanical contracting industry. Classes span a wide range of topics, including safety, technical and service training, business management, computer technology, and field leadership. Please note that all courses except Adult CPR, AED, and Basic First Aid will be delivered virtually.


Preparatory Institute for Project Management – The Pre-IPM is a new online program, intended to be a precursor to the MCAA’s Institute for Project Management, overseen by the same committee that manages the IPM and AIPM.  Registration is now open for the Fall program, which will begin on October 13, 2020.  The 12-week program costs $950/attendee.  Please use your MCAA account to register or reach out to Katie Carroll (, (240) 631-6293) for assistance with registering.

MSCA Virtual Sales Basecamp – Sales Basecamp is where it begins for entry-level service sales personnel in the HVACR and plumbing industry. This program will prepare this recent hire or employee new to a sales position with all the relevant skills necessary to confidently sell HVACR and plumbing services while creating added value for the customer. The skills and knowledge attained in this class will become the strong foundation on which you build a long and successful career in service sales. This interactive, three week virtual program will be held every Tuesday and Thursday at 2 PM EDT, starting November 3 – 19, 2020.
